What is a Polysomnographer?
Polysomnographers perform sleep studies to help physician's diagnosis and treat sleep disorders. They do this by recording data from tests that measure eye movement and brain waves. They must be able to communicate with patients to obtain information regarding their symptoms. Through the use of technology, they observe patients during the sleep study for breathing patterns and body movement. Polysomnographers work in research centers, hospitals and sleep laboratories.
The MC Polysomnography Certificate Program can be completed in 3 semesters. Courses are taught in the evenings and on weekends, allowing you the opportunity to work during the weekdays. Learn more about the program by selecting one of the links below or contact us.
