What happens at an overnight sleep study?
The overnight sleep study requires you to spend a night at a sleep centre. The test electronically records the body and brain’s activity during sleep. A report is generated on your brain activity, eye movements, heart patterns, oxygen and carbon dioxide blood levels, major muscle movements as well as breathing and snoring activity. A sleep physician will analyze the report and provide a diagnosis. Depending on the diagnosis, a sleep disorder can be effectively treated with a wide range of options: from a simple medical pillow to a CPAP machine.
