What is Nasal Endoscopy ?

A sleep study test or polysomnography is a test used for diagnosing sleep disorders. The test records the brain waves and the levels of oxygen in the blood, along with your heart rate and breathing. During the study, your leg and eye movements are also recorded.

At the Lifelong Clinic Speciality Clinic, the test is done under the supervision of trained professionals. The test helps in initiating or adjusting a treatment plan if you are diagnosed with a sleep disorder.
