The Next Step: A "Nocturnal Polysomnogram" Sleep Study Evaluation
A Nocturnal Polysomnogram is a painless sleep behavior study that can detect the possibility of a sleep disorder by measuring several parameters such as air movement, heart rate, brain rate, brain waves, and more. The study is done with lightweight sensors placed on various spots of the body to continuously record brain, heart, and lung activity. Muscle movement and airflow from the nose and mouth are monitored along with blood oxygen levels. A center technician monitors the devices throughout the night and is trained to observe sleep behavior with video equipment located outside the patient's private bedroom.
