A Polysomnography or Sleep Study is the gold standard in the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It is a non-invasive procedure and consists of a simultaneous recording of multiple physiologic parameters related to sleep and wakefulness.
The Medical City Clinic @ Timog Sleep Lab is set up for overnight stay of patients catering to the following procedures:
- Diagnostic Sleep Study - evaluates if patient has OSA and determines severity of the disease and can also diagnose other sleep disorders.
- Therapeutic Sleep Study - involves continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) titration. It determines the pressure that the OSA patient needs to open up his airways during sleep and treat the respiratory events.
- Split Night Sleep Study - both diagnostic and therapeutic studies done in one night.
