Sleep Study Test
A individual who is sound asleep is subjected to a Sleep Study Test whether at Lab or at Home. Sleep Study is also known as Polysomnography . In essence, Sleep Study Test is used to identify sleeping disorders. While a patient is sleeping, a Sleep Expert captures the following parameters for better :
- breathing pattern (respiration)
- Blood oxygen saturation
- Brain activity
- tone of the muscles
- Leg Movements
- Eye actions
CPAP Titration Test
An overnight sleep study called a CPAP titration study is performed to calibrate the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. Sleep apnea, hypoventilation, and hypoxemia are among the breathing diseases that are commonly treated with CPAP. Before you may start therapy after receiving a diagnosis of one of these illnesses, you might need a CPAP titration Test. In some cases, Our Sleep Expert may perform a CPAP titration study on the same night as a sleep study. This is typically only provided to accurately detect severe cases of sleep apnea.
Lab based Sleep Test
A sleep test is a Lab based medical test used to diagnose sleep disorders or diseases. During a sleep test, electrodes are placed on the scalp, face, chest, and legs to monitor brain waves, eye movements, muscle activity, heart rate, and breathing while a person sleeps. The test is usually conducted in a sleep lab overnight, but can also be done at home with portable equipment. The data collected during the test can help doctors determine if a person has sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, or other sleep disorders, and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
A polysomnography, sometimes referred to as a sleep study, is a medical test used to identify sleep problems. It entails keeping a check on someone’s heart rate, respiration, eye movements, muscular activity, and brain waves as they sleep. The test can be performed at home using portable equipment, but it is often done overnight in a sleep lab. The information gathered during the research can assist medical professionals in determining whether a patient has sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, or other sleep disorders and in creating a suitable treatment plan. The Patient may be required to keep report both before and after the study, and their sleep may be monitored by cameras.
A quick daytime sleep test called a “pap-nap” is used to help patients with sleep-disordered breathing acclimated to the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. In order to keep your airways open while you sleep, CPAP therapy uses a CPAP machine that delivers consistent air pressure through a hose and mask. The method itself is a brief, in-lab cardiorespiratory recording that lasts between 60 and 180 minutes and is supervised by our RPSG sleep expert. It is anticipated that the patient will adjust to PAP therapy well enough to fall asleep.

Polysomnography split night
Standard polysomnography (PSG) is utilised in the first part of a split-night study to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, and the second part is used to determine an appropriate level of continuous positive airway pressure. Our RPSG Sleep Expert used to compare the respiratory and sleep parameters measured during the first three hours of the night to those recorded throughout the remaining three hours of sleep and throughout the entire night.
In the following circumstances, a split-night polysomnogram is frequently used:
- to check for potentially serious sleep-related breathing issues like sleep apnea (over 20 times per hour)
- CPAP settings should be adjusted appropriately for patients with sleep-related breathing problems.
Polysomnography Diagnostic (PSG) is a sleep study that records and monitors several physiological parameters during sleep to diagnose sleep disorders. The parameters typically monitored include brain activity (electroencephalogram, or EEG), eye movement (electrooculogram, or EOG), muscle activity (electromyogram, or EMG), heart rate (electrocardiogram, or EKG), respiratory effort (chest and abdominal movement, airflow, and oxygen saturation), and snoring. PSG is used to diagnose a wide range of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, narcolepsy, and parasomnias. The results of a PSG are used by sleep specialists to develop a personalized treatment plan for the patient.
Polysomnography Therapeutic (PSG) is a sleep study procedure that combines diagnostic and therapeutic elements. The study involves monitoring several physiological parameters during sleep to diagnose sleep disorders, as well as providing treatment for the disorders being diagnosed. The therapeutic aspect of PSG typically involves the use of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), which is a non-invasive method of delivering air pressure to the airways to keep them open and prevent breathing interruptions during sleep. PSG can be used to diagnose and treat sleep apnea, as well as other sleep disorders that cause breathing difficulties during sleep. The results of the study are used to develop a personalized treatment plan for the patient.
Sleep Study Level I
Total 35 Parameters Included
- A Level 1 sleep study test is the most comprehensive sleep study test and involves continuous monitoring of sleep patterns for an extended period of time.
- It is performed in a sleep lab and is used to diagnose complex and persistent sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, insomnia, and restless leg syndrome.
- The results of a Level 1 sleep study test provide a complete and detailed understanding of a patient’s sleep patterns and are used to determine the most effective long-term treatment plan.
Sleep Study Level II
Total 25 Parameters Included
- A Level 2 sleep study test is also known as a full montage polysomnogram and monitors a comprehensive set of parameters during sleep.
Diagnoses for complicated sleep disorders such sleep apnea, insomnia, and restless legs syndrome are made using this procedure, which is carried out in a sleep lab.
The outcomes of a Level 2 sleep study test give a thorough insight of a patient’s sleeping habits and are used to choose the best treatment option.
Sleep Study Level III
Almost 6-7 Parameters Included
- A Level 3 sleep study test is an expanded version of a Level 4 test, monitoring additional parameters such as eye movements, chin electromyography, and respiratory effort.
- It is typically performed in a sleep lab or either at Home and is used to diagnose more complex sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome.
- The results of a Level 3 sleep study test provide a more comprehensive understanding of a patient’s sleep patterns and are used to determine the most effective course of treatment.
Sleep Study Level IV
Almost 2 Parameters Included
- Also known as a limited channel recording, a Level 4 sleep study test monitors basic sleep parameters such as heart rate and oxygen saturation.
- It is typically performed in a home environment and is used to diagnose simple sleep disorders or to monitor patients with known sleep disorders.
- The results of a Level 4 sleep study test are used to determine the need for a more comprehensive sleep study.

Sleep Study at Home
Sleep study tests are an important tool for diagnosing sleep disorders, and a home sleep study test can provide valuable information about a person’s sleep patterns in the comfort of their own home.
Home sleep study tests are typically used to diagnose simple sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, or to monitor patients with known sleep disorders. This is also convenient for people who have difficulty sleeping in a sleep lab or who prefer to avoid an overnight stay in a hospital.
During a home sleep study test, a patient wears a small device that monitors various physiological parameters, including heart rate, oxygen saturation, and breathing patterns. The device is easy to wear and non-invasive, and the results are analyzed by a sleep specialist to determine if a sleep disorder is present.
Overall, home sleep study tests are a useful and convenient way for evaluating sleep patterns and diagnosing sleep disorders. If you suspect you may have a sleep disorder, it is important to speak with your doctor to determine the best course of action, which may include a home sleep study test or an in-lab sleep study test.
