Sleep analysis

A sleep analysis is usually recorded in a sleep laboratory using sleep polygraphy. Bioelectrical signals are sent and evaluated. The most decisive assessment basis is provided by various brain current activities, which can be used to define six different sleep phases. The individual sleep phases are differentiated by their respective sleep depths. In addition to the brain waves, the sleep analysis also takes into account eye movements and recordings of muscle tone. At the end of a sleep analysis, a sleep profile of the patient can be created. This provides information about sleep structure and the depth of sleep and is based on the temporal sequence of the different sleep phases.

The underlying reason for performing a diagnostic sleep analysis is sleep disorders, which can have long-term effects on health. Not only is performance impaired by sleep deficits, but there is also an increased risk of developing diabetes or dementia or suffering a stroke.
