At KD Hospital, we have an exclusive sleep laboratory with dedicated doctors, staff, and technicians. We have the latest Philips Alice 6 LDx diagnostic sleep system powered by the latest Sleepware G3 sleep diagnostic software with integrated RIP driver, 7 ECG channels, up to 500 Hz recording, and “keyhole” inputs reducing the number of connections during hook up.
Our sleep lab involves spending at least 1 night at the Sleep Clinic in KD Hospital. During the study, you enjoy a comfortable private room, electrodes are attached to your body which transmit and record your sleep patterns and specific information about your physical activities, such as breathing, brain waves, heart activity, and eye and muscle movements, while asleep. The recordings become data, which is analysed by our sleep centre physicians and doctors to determine the nature of your sleep disorder.
At Kusum Dhirajlal Hospital we do sleep study or polysomnography (PSG) to diagnose sleep disorders such as sleep apnoea (reduction or pulsation of breath during sleep) or other sleep-related breathing disorders, periodic limb movement disorder, narcolepsy (excessive daytime sleepiness), insomnia (difficulty in falling asleep that results in daytime drowsiness), unusual behaviours during sleep like sleepwalking, and REM sleep behaviour disorder (acting out dreams while sleeping).
Sleep study is the primary objective test for obstructive sleep apnoea. The symptoms and warning signs of sleep apnoea include:
Complications may develop if sleep apnoea is not considered seriously and treatment is not given. These complications include:
