There are many types of cables used in polysomnography (sleep studies). Some will monitor sleep stages, some monitor sleep cycles and still others are used to identify disruptions in sleep patterns. These cables range from a typical EEG cable to a more complex snore sensor cable. A typical sleep study setup will contain 22 or more cables that use 12 electrical channels. In a sleep study environment, multiple cables are connected to a central measuring device. The data is then available to be analyzed. Any cable manufacturer can offer a single or only a few cables, but only those with experience working directly with sleep study equipment providers can offer a full sleep study product line.
A sleep study cable assembly package can contain a combination of the following:
- EEG cables: for monitoring brain activity.
- EOG cables: for monitoring eye movement.
- ECG/EKG: for monitoring heart activity.
- EMG: for monitoring and measuring muscle tension and leg movement.
- Snore Sensors: for monitoring breathing and snoring.
- Pulse Oximeter: for measuring changes in blood oxygen levels.
