This app is designed for people who are preparing to undergo a sleep study at a sleep clinic. Further, this app works well for people who are participating in longer term research studies.
The diary is modelled on the Consensus Sleep Diary and includes the most important questions needed by your sleep specialist. It is important that you complete your sleep diary each day after you wake up; it should take no longer than 60 seconds.
At any time after you have completed 2 days of sleep entries, you can make a PDF of your sleep data and share this with any healthcare professional at your discretion. Your data is always private and secure and is not stored on any 3rd party system.
One of the primary benefits of the app is its ability to automatically calculate your sleep metrics including:
SOL - sleep onset latency
# of Awakenings and Naps
WASO - wake time after sleep onset
TWAK - terminal wakefulness
TIB - time in bed
TST - total sleep time
SE - sleep efficiency
These metrics will be automatically included in weekly averages at the bottom of your PDF sleep report which is designed for letter-size printing (8’5 x 11). To view a sample report generated by the app, visit: bit.ly/sleepdiaryPDF

We have updated the app to improve the performance and address the PDF export issues some users were experiencing. Thank you for your support.
