Brisbane Sleep Studies
Brisbane Patients Can Now Get Sleep Studies In the Comfort And Privacy Of Their Own Home
Sleep studies, otherwises known as 'diagnostic sleep studies' or 'polysomnograms' are critically important tools for determining the nature and severity of a patient's condition.
Until recently, diagnostic sleep studies were only performed in an 'attended' setting, typically in a hospital based sleep unit. Now Brisbane patients can arrange to have a sleep study done in the comfort and privacy of their own home, using a portable diagnostic recorder.
These state of the art portable recorders allow the patient to sleep in the comfort and privacy of their own bedroom.
Apart from being less daunting and less expensive, these studies also provide a more typical sleeping environment for the sleep study to be conducted in.
High quality recorders monitor brainwave activity, cardiac activity, blood oxygen levels, breathing patterns and stoppages, limb movements, sleeping position and much more. The recorded data is then downloaded and provided to specialist, independent sleep physicians who diagnose the condition and prescribe an appropriate form of treatment.
