Polysomnography

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:

Polysomnography (PSG) is a sleep test to learn if you have a sleep-related breathing disorder (SRBD), such as obstructive sleep apnea.

AFTER YOU LEAVE:

Follow up with your primary healthcare provider as directed:

You will need to return to get the results of your PSG. You may need more PSG tests to see if treatment for your SRBD is working. Write down your questions so you remember to ask them during your visits.

Contact your primary healthcare provider if:

  • You have questions or concerns about your test results, condition, or care.
