Polysomnography is a sleep study or a test used to diagnose sleep disorders. Your brain waves, the oxygen level in your blood, heart rate and breathing, as well as eye and leg movements during the study, will be recorded and will help us determine if and what your sleeping disorder may be. If you have already been diagnosed with a sleeping disorder, polysomnography may be used to help adjust your treatment plan. It can identify if, when, and why your sleep cycles are disrupted. This sleep study at our Neurologist in Port Jefferson is used to test Sleep Apnea, Parasomnias, Narcolepsy or Chronic Insomnia.

The neurologist in Port Jefferson, Dr. James Bruno of Three Village Neurology, can conduct a comprehensive history and order appropriate testing to detect what sleeping disorder you may have. Here are some sleep disorders that patients should seek a neurologist for.
