In Home Sleep Studies In QueenslandIn-home sleep studies are now more accessible than ever, throughout Queensland.
In home sleep studies, otherwises known as 'portable diagnostic sleep studies' or 'portable polysomnograms' are critically important tools for determining the nature and severity of a patient's condition.
Until recently, sleep studies were performed primarily in an 'attended' setting, typically in a hospital based sleep unit, where trained sleep scientists observe the patient throughout the night. More recently, the introduction of state-of-the-art diagnostic technology has meant in-home sleep studies are now a completely viable alternative in many cases.
Obviously, in home sleep studies allow the patient to sleep in the comfort and privacy of their own bedroom. Apart from being less daunting and less expensive, these in home sleep 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.
