Sleep Studies: What to Expect

Parasomnography

For More Information

Sleep studies are a noninvasive, easy way to identify sleep disorders like sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, circadian rhythm disorders, narcolepsy, parasomnias, and more. Although you might feel like a sleep study is inconvenient, there is a lot to gain and little to lose. By measuring your breathing patterns, muscle movement, brain activity, heart rate, oxygen levels, and more during sleep, Duke’s sleep disorders team can determine whether you have a sleep disorder, its type, and how to treat it so that you can start sleeping better.
