Why Technologists?

When collecting a sleep study, there are many factors that have to be perfect to collect the signals needed by your sleep physician. The sleep technologist is specially trained to educate the patient on sleep health, secure collection wires to patient, and ensure the wires collect quality data. Technologists are required to understand not only what we are collecting for the doctor, but also how it is collected. Knowing how the amplifiers work and how the signals are collected allows the technologist to ensure a quality collection has been made for your physician to review. The wires used to collect the information are sensitive and require a trained eye to know what is correct and what is abnormal during collection. Technologists are also trained on sleep disorders and understand what breathing patterns the patient could exhibit.
