Overnight sleep study:

Also known as Polysomnography (PSG), a sleep study is conducted when a sleep disorder is suspected.
Carried out in a private room, the study begins at regular bedtime and concludes the following morning.
Throughout the night, sleep scientists monitor Brain wave activity, Respiration, Eye movement activity, Heart rate,
Muscle tone and Blood oxygen levels.
At the conclusion of the sleep study, results are analysed by a sleep specialist, who will discuss diagnosis, treatment and/or recommendations with their patient.
