What is polysomnography?
Polysomnography is a type of noninvasive overnight monitoring in which the patient’s sleep, breathing and movements are continually monitored. The examination is completely painless and soothing for the patient, and it enables the medical expert (somnologist) to receive a detailed insight into the patient’s sleeping problems.
Just before going to sleep, a medical professional describes the procedure to the patient, after which he strategically places sensors (using a special cream) on the patient’s body, depending on the desired field of measurement. Most common fields include brain activity, eye movement, muscle tone, breathing, heart operation, and oxygen saturation. During the night, a medical professional monitors the patient’s breathing through a camera in the other room, and is at the patient’s disposal throughout the night in case of any inquiries or requests.
What is polygraphy?
A polygraph is a mobile device that is attached to the patient during sleep, and which monitors the patient’s sleep, breathing, muscle tone and oxygen saturation. It is intended for diagnosing sleep apnea. Considering the device is mobile, it is not necessary for the patient to sleep at the Polyclinic, but can also be monitored during sleep in his own home.
Assisted-breathing device titration (CPAP titration)
If the patient has been diagnosed with sleep apnea, NeuroSan Polyclinic can provide you with an opportunity to test the device (CPAP device) used to treat the given problem. Our staff of medical professionals will provide full support and will answer all of your questions. We also have a variety of masks and sizes for CPAP devices available for you.
