The Wesley Hospital Sleep Disorders Centre offers home sleep studies for patients who are uninsured or cannot afford the excess from an overnight hospital stay.
We bulk bill these studies, which are performed using a fully integrated light weight sleep system that moves around with you so there’s no need for unplugging any wires or cables to go to the bathroom overnight.
Our team provides a caring focused multidisciplinary approach to patient treatment and followup.
Our CPAP Educators assist with CPAP therapy training and support with all patients, and are located at The Wesley Hospital and Toowoomba.
Every patient is reviewed regularly, once treatment is commenced. This ensures our service achieves a 90-95% compliance rate with CPAP therapy, which is significantly above national and international standards.
The service provides all up to date CPAP masks and machines. Full rental and sales services are provided, meeting all ethical standards of service.
Our aim is the longterm support, edcuation and management of patients with all sleep disorders, in conjunction with the Sleep Physician and GP.
