Manual polysomnographic scoring services

Scoring sleep studies is essential; it makes up an important part of diagnostic procedures for sleep disorders. This exercise is often time-consuming and requires and a high level of expertise on behalf of the scorer to be performed correctly.

 

That’s why we provide ongoing training for our technologists on the latest scoring and recording techniques.

 

Considering the many constants, which may be confusing, the PSG reports generated through computer and auto-analysis only produce many errors and can lead to incorrect diagnosis of the disease.

In the recommendations from the AASM (American Academy of Sleep Medicine) and the SFRMS (Sociéte Francaise de Recherche en Médecine du Sommeil), manual scoring by qualified personnel has been emphasized.
