Sleep Study

Sleep Study

A sleep study, also known as a polysomnogram, is a diagnostic test used to evaluate sleep disorders and identify the underlying causes of sleep disturbances. Sleep disorders can have a significant impact on a person's health, causing daytime sleepiness, fatigue, irritability, and other symptoms that can affect daily life.

At Fakeeh Home Health Care, we offer comprehensive sleep study services to help diagnose and treat sleep disorders. Our team of healthcare professionals uses state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to monitor various physiological parameters during sleep, including brain activity, eye movements, muscle tone, and heart rate.

During a sleep study, the patient will typically spend one or more nights in our sleep center, where they will be connected to various monitoring devices that will record data on their sleep patterns and physiological responses.

These devices may include

  1. Electroencephalogram (EEG): This measures brain wave activity during sleep to assess the stages of sleep.
  2. Electrooculogram (EOG): This measures eye movements during sleep to evaluate the different stages of sleep.
  3. Electromyogram (EMG): This measures muscle tone and activity during sleep to assess for conditions such as sleep apnea.
  4. Electrocardiogram (ECG): This measures heart rate and rhythm during sleep to assess for any abnormalities.

Other parameters that may be monitored during a sleep study include breathing rate, oxygen saturation, and body movements.

The data collected during a sleep study is analyzed by our team of sleep specialists, who will then use the results to diagnose and treat any sleep disorders that are identified.

Common sleep disorders that may be diagnosed through a sleep study include

  1. Sleep apnea: A condition characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep.
  2. Insomnia: A condition in which a person has difficulty falling or staying asleep.
  3. Narcolepsy: A condition characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness and sudden bouts of sleep.
  4. Restless leg syndrome: A condition characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs during sleep.

At Fakeeh Home Health Care, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality sleep study services. Our team of healthcare professionals will work closely with you to ensure that your sleep study is comfortable and effective in diagnosing and treating any sleep disorders that may be affecting your health and quality of life.
