Polysomnography (PSG):

Polysomnography (PSG) is a comprehensive test that records brain waves, eye movements, muscle activity, heart rate, breathing, and oxygen levels during sleep. It is the gold standard for diagnosing sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), narcolepsy, and restless legs syndrome.

PSG can be performed in a sleep laboratory or at home. In a sleep laboratory, the patient is monitored by a technician throughout the night. In home sleep testing, the patient wears a portable device that records their sleep data.

The results of PSG can help doctors diagnose sleep disorders and develop treatment plans. For example, if PSG shows that a patient has OSA, the doctor may prescribe a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine to help keep the airway open during sleep.

Sleep Study and Snoring:

Snoring is a common problem that can affect people of all ages. However, it can be a sign of a more serious sleep disorder, such as OSA.

OSA is a condition in which the airway becomes blocked during sleep, causing the person to snore loudly and gasp for breath. OSA can lead to a number of health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

If you snore loudly or have other symptoms of OSA, such as daytime sleepiness, you should see a doctor. A sleep study can help diagnose OSA and determine the best treatment.
