<strong>What Should I Expect During the Sleep Study?</strong></div>
<p>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<strong>O</strong>nce you arrive in the facility, you will be greeted by one of our technicians and you will have a private bedroom assigned for you.  The rooms are set up like normal, comfortable bedrooms. You have a queen sized bed and plasma TV on the wall. After that she/ he will ask you to change into your bedtime clothes and fill out Bedtime Questionnaire. After you have completed the form, the tech will then measure and mark your head with a non-toxic washable pencil.  This ensures proper placement of leads (or electrodes).   Then, leads will be placed on your body to measure the items listed below. Keep in mind that none of the devices used are painful and no needles are involved.  
<p>

<ul>
<li><strong>PSG</strong>: A polysomnogram (or PSG) is a safe, painless test, which lasts all night and helps us determine the diagnosis of your sleep problem.</li>
<p>

<li><strong>EEG</strong> (electroencephalograph):  monitors brain waves to help determine your stage of sleep.</li>
<p>
 
<li><strong>EOG</strong> (electrooculograph):  monitors eye movements.</li>
<p>
 
<li><strong>EMG</strong> (electromyograph):  monitors limb movements and chin activity.</li>
<p>
 
<li><strong>ECG</strong> (electrocardiograph):  measures heart rate and rhythm.</li></ul>
<p>
 
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<strong>B</strong>reathing from your nose and mouth will be monitored by a sensor called a thermocouple or pressure catheter.
