Description

The only sleep technology text written by experienced polysomnography educators, Polysomnography for the Sleep Technologist: Instrumentation, Monitoring, and Related Procedures covers the procedural knowledge you need to understand sleep studies. A sequential learning model systematically covers electronics, instrumentation, recording parameters, data acquisition, ancillary equipment, troubleshooting, recording quality, infection control, basic positive pressure therapy, and cardiopulmonary monitoring and intervention essential to polysomnography.

Key Features

  • In-depth discussions of polysomnographic technology in the clinical evaluation, physiological monitoring and testing, instrumentation, diagnosis, infection control, management and prevention of a wide spectrum of sleep-related disorders and daytime alertness offers comprehensive coverage of polysomnography technology.
  • Expert content written by the same authors who were instrumental in producing a standardized model curriculum outline.
  • Unique sequential approach builds concepts over time and simplifies the material’s complexity.
  • Over 150 full-color graphs, charts, and illustrations supply visual guidance.
  • End-of-chapter review questions help you assess your knowledge and prepare for certification as a sleep technologist.
  • Chapter outlines, learning objectives, key terms and a bulleted chapter summary supplies a standard format to help you identify and focus on key content.
