In brief: Clinical evaluation
Sleep clinic does the clinical evaluation and managment of the sleep disorders/problems and wants to rule out sleep apnea.
Sleep lab does the diagnostic and cpap/bipap sleep study for diagnosis and managment of sleep apnea. Goal is to improve the sleep and over all health as sleep is linked to many diseases like heart disase, stroke and diabetes.
