Exams

Exams Overview

All tests are performed by a multidisciplinary team that is responsible for preparing and monitoring the patients, as well as examining their sleep records.

The tests are recommended for diagnosing various sleep disorders, sleep respiratory disorders, narcolepsy, other hypersomnias, parasomnias (sleepwalking, behavioral REM disorder, nightmares and night terrors), Restless Legs Syndrome, periodic limb movement, and circadian rhythm disorders.

The main symptoms related to these disorders that require tests at the Sleep Institute include excessive daytime sleepiness, snoring and respiratory arrests while sleeping, unusual sleep behavior, difficulty falling or staying asleep, and leg movement while sleeping. All tests are carried out upon a doctor’s request.

Differences between type 1, 2 and 3 polysomnogram

  • Type 1 polysomnogram – Performed in a sleep laboratory and observed by a technologist. (Picking up at least 7 signal channels).
  • Type 2 polysomnogram – Performed without the observation of a technologist. (Picking up at least 7 signal channels).
  • Type 3 polysomnogram – Performed without the observation of a technologist. (Picking up 4 signal channels).

Covid-19 Preventive Measures

Facing the new coronavirus, Instituto do Sono has adopted several recommendations from the Brazilian Sleep Association (BSA) to reinforce the safety of our patients and personnel.

What has been done:

  • Obligatory hand sanitation and use of mask.
  • Availability of alcohol gel on several strategic points.
  • Temperature measuring for patients and personnel at the door of the building. In case of any symptom, the patient is led to reschedule the exam or consultation.
  • Installation of acrylic protection on the reception desks to prevent contact.
  • Intensification of the sanitization process for the environment and equipment.
  • For presential exams at the Instituto do Sono, we interchange the use of equipment and the sanitization of the bedrooms at a 72-hour shift between stays.
