Polysomnography

Sleep study or polysomnography is the typical medical test for identifying the disorders that are related to sleep. In this test, certain personal details such as the nature of the brain waves of the individual concerned, the heart rate, the measure of oxygen in the blood, the breathing rate, etc., are taken into consideration. Apart from these data, the doctor also counts the precise movements of eyes and legs as supplementary information. This test is performed as an in-hospital treatment procedure. In general, the patient will have to report to the hospital during the evening time; so the doctors could verify practically the snags of sleeping. Polysomnography is performed in the sleep labs, which are specifically maintained for the purpose.
