That happens.....

Sleep is a very complex topic because many processes take place in the brain and in the body at the same time.

n order to be able to identify possible sleep disorders, various body functions must be closely monitored and analyzed during the night.

The nightly examination of sleep is called polysomnography (from lat./gr. Poly = many, somno = sleep, graphie = record). The following signals are recorded here digitally and simultaneously: The following signals are recorded here digitally and simultaneously:

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.
