DEFINITION
Polysomnography (Complete sleep study), is a test used to diagnose sleep disorders. Polysomnography records your brain waves, the oxygen level in your blood, heart rate and breathing, as well as eye and leg movements during the study. Polysomnography usually is done at a sleep disorders center or at home. At our sleep centre you'll be asked to come at night for polysomnography so that the test can record your nighttime sleep patterns. In addition to helping diagnose sleep disorders, polysomnography may be used to help adjust your treatment plan if you've already been diagnosed with a sleep disorder.

WHY IT’S DONE
Polysomnography monitors your sleep stages and cycles to identify if or when your sleep patterns are disrupted and why.
Your doctor may recommend polysomnography if he or she suspects you have:
Sleep apnea or another sleep-related breathing disorder —your breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep.
Periodic limb movement disorder — you involuntarily flex and extend your legs while sleeping. This sleep disorder is sometimes associated with restless legs syndrome.
Narcolepsy — you experience overwhelming daytime drowsiness and sudden attacks of sleep.
REM sleep behavior disorder — you act out dreams as you sleep.
RISKS
Polysomnography is a noninvasive, painless test. Complications are rare. The most common side effect is skin irritation caused by the adhesive used to attach test sensors to your skin..
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

During polysomnography
You arrive at the sleep center in the night for polysomnography and stay overnight. You may bring items you use for your bedtime routine, and you can sleep in your own nightclothes. In certain patients this study can also be done at home.
After you get ready for bed, one of the technologists places sensors on your scalp, temples, chest and legs using a mild adhesive, such as glue or tape. The wires are long enough to let you move normally in bed. A small clip also is placed on your finger or ear to monitor the level of oxygen in your blood. The following parameters are monitored

All of these measurements are recorded on a continuous graph..
After polysomnography
In the morning, the sensors are removed, and you may leave the sleep center. You can return to your usual activities after polysomnography.
Results
The measurements recorded during polysomnography provide a great deal of information about your sleep patterns.
It may take up to two or three days to receive the results of polysomnography. At a follow-up appointment, your doctor reviews the results with you and, based on the data gathered, discusses any treatment or further evaluation that you may need.

HOME STUDY TESTS
Our technician will come to your place and set up the testing equipment in the morning technician will remove the setup and take it back.
After which analysis is done with the help of recorded data and report is made. At a follow-up appointment, your doctor reviews the results with you and, based on the data gathered, discusses any treatment or further evaluation that you may need.

This is also an overnight test. Once an individual has been diagnosed with sleep apnea by their doctor, they’ll go through a process called a titration study. This is where they will be fitted for their nasal or oronasal mask and machine to plan treatment of sleep apnea.
