Sleep Study Not Helpful

Well, my husband spent a night in the hospital to have his sleep problems diagnosed. Unfortunately, the test was incomplete because he did not sleep long enough for them to make a diagnosis. He kept waking up and had trouble going back to sleep.

At about 4 a.m., the technician came in and sent him home because there was no way they could get sufficient data to diagnose sleep apnea, even though he might well have it. He just wasn't sleeping.

He's supposed to see if the doctor will order another test.
