Modern and flexible – sleep diagnostics at the Beta Klinik
Sleep is healthy and essential for regeneration. Those who do not sleep enough at night may fall ill. In order to feel recuperated and well rested, an average of six to eight hours of deep sleep per night is necessary. Up to five sleep cycles can be used to measure sleep quality and health. To facilitate recuperative restoration, the interdisciplinary concept of Beta Sleep’s specialists, led by Katharina Diamantis, involves the use of the most modern equipment and procedures as well as close consultation with specialists from the fields of neurology and sleep medicine.
Within the scope of detailed sleep diagnostics with comprehensive polysomnography, the following parameters can be measured, documented and evaluated depending on the state of the illness or the level of exhaustion. These measurements are in accordance with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) standards.
- electrical activity of the brain (electroencephalography/EEG)
- electrical activity of the heart (electrocardiography/ECG)
- oxygen level of the blood (pulse oximetry)
- body temperature
- respiratory flow (mouth and nose)
- respiratory movement
- electrical activity of the muscles (electromyography/EMG)
- leg movement
- ocular movement (electrooculogram/EOG)
- body position
