What is a Sleep Study?
A sleep study is a nightly recording of your sleep that is used to diagnose and treat sleep disorders. Our Snoring and Sleep Apnea Centre sleep studies may be done at home or in our sleep lab. This research is sometimes conducted throughout the day to accommodate shift employees who sleep during the day.
During sleep, a sleep study, also known as polysomnography, monitors your brain activity, oxygen levels in your blood, heart rate and breathing, as well as eye, chin, and leg movements. It tracks your sleep phases and cycles to see if and when your sleep cycles are disrupted. .
