  • Polysomnogram
    A polysomnogram monitors a person's sleep habits overnight in a sleep lab. A technologist will position tiny painless sensors to different points of an individual's body to record brain waves, muscle activity, leg and arm movements, heart rhythm, and other body functions during sleep.
