These tests can help your doctor to find out whether you have a sleep disorder and how severe it is. It is a Gold standard technique for assessing sleep and sleep disorders.

The parameters studied are

  1. EEG (electroencephalogram)
  2. EOG (electro-occulogram)
  3. EMG (electromyogram)
  4. ECG (electrocardiogram)
  5. Respiratory Channels
  6. SpO2
  7. Body Position
  8. Snore Sensor

We also provide you the facilities of home sleep studies , where our technicians will come to your doorstep to analyse your sleep disorders and will conduct a study.

 

 Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) Therapy:

 
Positive airway pressure (PAP) is a mode of respiratory ventilation used primarily in the treatment of sleep apnea. Different types of machines such as CPAP, BiPAP and AutoASV are required as per patient condition.
 

IISS carries out manual titration so that appropriate pressure is provided to the patient.

Dental appliances have been successful in reliving mild to moderate type of obstructive sleep apnea . they are comfortable to use , less bulky and easily portable.

 

Parallel therapies

Actiwatch

It is a noninvasive device worn continuously like a standard wristwatch in the comfort of the patient’s own home, for multiple days and nights, i.e., 24/7. It can be used safely by almost all patient populations. Actigraphy analysis can provide sleep schedule variability, sleep quantity and quality statistics, and daytime activity patterns for weeks at a time. The long-term data collected from the home environment by actigraphy also provides a record of sleep efficiency, total sleep time and sleep start and end times, which are not available using any other methods.

 

Neurofeedback

It is a therapy provided for patients diagnosed with insomnia, anxiety, depression/over-emotiveness, racing thoughts, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, impulse control, poor attention/concentration, epilepsy, and migraines. While this therapy does not claim to cure the above-mentioned ailments, it does improve the patient’s health and help him reach normal functioning. Neurofeedback teaches clients how to control their brain waves and “reshape” the mind. This procedure yields permanent results. Once a person is taught to control their brain waves, they will have control over them indefinitely. The number of sessions needed for the technique depends on the severity of the condition.
