Technical Equipment and Exams

All three sleep stations in the emovis sleep laboratory are fully equipped. They are ultramodern, video-monitored, polysomnography stations. The performance ability is further highlighted by the fact that all three sleep stations are used simultaneously within the framework of numerous clinical trials. The diagnostic procedures range from EEG and ECG up to video- and sound monitoring of each test subject

All three sleep stations at the emovis sleep laboratory are equipped with the technology (manufacturer: SOMNO medics) in an effort to record the diverse bodily functions such as brain waves, eye movements, muscle tension, breathing patterns or oxygen saturation of the blood during the night.

The following exams can be performed during the study subjects nighttime sleep pattern, including:

  • Electro encephalography (EEG)
  • Nasal respiratory airflow (NAF)
  • Thoracic respiratory motion (THO)
  • Abdominal respiratory motion (ABD)
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Blood pressure (RR)
  • Arterial oxygen saturation test via finger sensor (pulse oximetry)
  • Body temperature
  • Electromyogram (EMG) – Recording muscle movement in the legs and masticatory muscle
  • Electrooculography (EOG) – recording eye movement
  • Sound record
  • Video record

Depending on the study, additional devices typically provided by the sponsor may be added.
