POLYSOMNOGRAPHY

According to the American Sleep Association, 50-70 million adults in the U.S. have a sleep disorder (source: sleepassociation.org). To help pinpoint the causes of sleep issues, a doctor may order a sleep study to be performed by a polysomnographer in a sleep lab.

Students in Lakeland's polysomnography certificate program will gain knowledge to help adults and children with sleep disorders. Some sleep disorder examples include disruptive snoring, sleep apnea and insomnia.

Students will learn about sleep science, bio- electricity studies (EKG, EEG, EMG), respiratory monitoring, cardiopulmonary physiology and much more.

Some of the job titles that polysomnographers may go by include sleep technician, polysomnographic technician, sleep lab technician and others.
