Sleep is a very important part of people's lives. It is a time when they are able to rest physically and mentally. Thus, they get "recharged" when they have slept. Sleeping actually has five different stages. This starts from stage one (light sleep) to rapid eye movement stage (wherein dreams happen). However, there are people who are not able to complete the different stages due to interruptions of sleep. Such usually happens due to environmental factors. Others experience such due to certain sleeping disorders.
According to the neuroscience of sleep, there are also people who are not aware that their sleep has been interrupted. That is the reason why such individuals wonder why they feel sleepy and fatigued in the morning. More often than not, these individuals may have sleep apnea. It is a condition wherein the person's sleep is disrupted during the deep sleep stage. That is due to the fact that their breathing has stopped for a certain period. Since the disorder poses risk of developing more serious conditions like diabetes and heart attack, diagnosing sleep apnea is very important.
Traditionally, an in-laboratory Polysomnography test is being conducted. Nowadays, there are already a lot of alternatives for such. One is with the use of electroencephalogram (EEG). It is a test that is used to test the electrical activities of the patient's brain. The Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG), on the other hand, is used to heart's electrical activity. Another test is the so-called Electromyography (EMG). It is somewhat considered as the combination of EKG and EEG because it measures heart and nerve activities. An alternative that is gaining tremendous popularity is the home sleep test(HST). It is a test that is patterned to the traditional olysomnography test. However, according to SleepHealthyMidwest.com, the machine is simpler in design, as well as easier to use.
