Full Polysomnography

At Nithra, we conduct various types of sleep studies. A sleep study or polysomnography is a diagnostic procedure recording multiple parameters that identify different sleep stages and identify the nature and severity of the sleep problem. A trained sleep technician closely monitors all sleep studies at Nithra throughout the night and records the data. Subsequently, the studies are extensively analyzed through the process of ‘scoring’ and then interpreted by the sleep specialist, who plans treatment further based on the results.

Although the overnight sleep study (polysomnogram) is the ideal way to analyze various aspects of your sleep, your doctor may choose a portable four-channel study to diagnose specific problems such as snoring and sleep apnea. These studies, referred to as cardiorespiratory sleep study or level 3 portable study, may be performed at the convenience of your home, a friend’s place, a hotel room or at any other healthcare facility.
