Instructions for examinees 
On the night of the text please arrive at the designated hour (usually 9pm for adults and 8pm for children) after eating and showering at home. Please bring a payment guarantee from your HMO, a referral letter and comfortable sleeping attire. If you take medication before going to sleep - please bring them with you. 
Parents should bring all the equipment their child might need during the night: diapers, pacifiers, bottles and milk/formula.
The laboratory supplies sleeping bedding but patients who think they'll sleep better with their own blanket and pillow should definitely bring them. This is particularly relevant for infants. Familiar objects from home can help create a sense of confort. In addition to the bedding, it's recommended to bring toys and loved books.
Upon arrival at the laboratory, you'll be asked to fill out a few forms and questionnaires before getting ready for sleep your room. Once you're ready, the technician will prepare you for the examination by placing electrodes and sensors on your head, face, limbs and body. None of these is invasive. You might feel some discomfort but the process is not painful. After the technician finishes checking that everything is working properly, you can go to sleep until morning. 
You can use the restroom freely throughout the night. It will not interfere with the test. 



The sleep laboratory at Shaare Zedek Medical Center is recognized by the Israeli Ministry of Health.
