In this sleep study, we use a computer to display all of the functions of the body organs and organ systems while you are awake and asleep. We use microphones to record snoring, teeth grinding, chewing, and talking. The microphones also enable you to communicate with us during the study. A body position sensor tells us how you’re lying on the bed, and infrared video cameras allow us to monitor your movements.
These are daytime nap tests that we perform to diagnose sleep disorders such as Narcolepsy and Idiopathic Hypersomnolence Syndrome. We record all of the same systems during these tests as we do during a sleep study.
For COVID-19 safety precautions, we ask that all patients, whether sleep or pulmonary, wear masks upon entering our offices and try to come alone or with as few people as possible-your safety is our main concern.
