1 – EOG: eye movements (electrooculography)
2 – ECG: cardiac rhythm (electrocardiography)
3 – EMG: Chin Muscles (electromyography = recording of muscle tension)
4 – EMG: leg muscles (recording of leg movements)
5 – Snoringrecorded via a microphone
6 – Respiratory flow through a nasal cannula
7 – Breathingof the abdomen and chest
8 – Body Position
9 – Activity
10 – Oxygen level iin the blood
11 – evtl. Blood Pressure
12 – In addition, there is visual monitoring using video recording of your sleep. Usiing the video, the sleep tech can intervene even if sensors are detached.
The entire examination is absolutely risk-free and of course pain-free for the patient. Thanks to wireless data transmission, you can also move and stand up with measuring devices on.
