Sleep Study (Polysomnography,PSP)

Book Now

Polysomnography is a sleep test conducted to diagnose sleep disorders. In Polysomnography, pulmonologists record:

 

  • Brain waves

  • The oxygen level in your blood

  • Heart rate

  • Breathing

  • Eye and leg movements during sleep

 

Sleep studies are done at sleep centres or a sleep disorder unit within a hospital. The most appropriate time for this test is at night; however, it is also done during the day for those with night shifts at work. If you are already diagnosed with a sleeping disorder, polysomnography helps determine the patient's treatment plan. A sleep study can also be done at home using different devices. Home sleep apnea test records your breathing and airflow. Some styles also record information on blood vessels.

 

Polysomnography/PSP test is done to identify when and why your sleep gets disrupted. One typically goes through multiple sleep cycles, and sleep disorders disrupt these cycles and sleep. 

 

Our Pulmonologists recommend a PSP test when you are diagnosed with 

  • Sleep apnea

  • Narcolepsy

  • Unusual behaviour during sleep

 

Polysomnography is a non-invasive, painless test; skin irritation is the only side effect caused due to the test sensors attached to your skin. 

 

Heritage Hospitals should be your best choice if you or someone close has been advised for a Polysomnography test. With our excellent results, advanced care and critical care facilities, we strive to provide better results.
