What Takes Place in A Sleep Laboratory?
Sleep studies, also referred to as polysomnography, are conducted at Horizon Medical Center for the diagnosis of sleep apnea or other sleep disorders. When you arrive at our sleep laboratory, we will have you rest comfortably in a quiet area. As you sleep throughout the night, our team will use advanced electroencephalogram (EEG) equipment to evaluate for breathing cessation and monitor your oxygen levels, heart and brain activity, and other physiological information. Our physicians will then analyze the data collected from your sleep study. A follow-up visit will then be scheduled to review your results and discuss sleep apnea treatment options, such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or oral appliance therapy.
