WHAT IS A SLEEP STUDY A polysomnogram is an overnight sleep study. It records detailed information that shows how your body acts while you sleep. A technologist will attach sensors to your body for the study. The sensors will record the body actions: Brain waves, heart rate/rhythm, breathing quality, oxygen level, leg movement, and snoring. The study also may involve other sensors. The sensors send signals to a computer. The Sleep Disorders Center will record/gather this data and prepare a detailed report about your sleep. A Sleep Disorders Center’s Sleep Physician or Nurse Practitioner will then review the results with you and design a course of treatment that best fits your sleep needs.
