Sleep studies

A sleep study, or polysomnogram, is a test that records your brain and body functions whilst you are asleep. They are painless tests that just require you to sleep.

As you sleep, your brain waves, eye movement, heart rate, breathing, muscle tone, limb movement, blood oxygen levels and any noises you make such as snoring are monitored. Your sleep specialist will use this data to diagnose and treat your sleep disorder.

At Ramsay people often come to us for sleep studies to try to find out the cause of their ongoing sleep problems, or if they are feeling sleepy during the day or waking up feeling tired instead of refreshed. Also, partners may hear loud snoring, gasping and stopping breathing while sleeping which causes concern.
