Help Patients Get to the Bottom of Sleep Problems
Polysomnographic technicians (PSTs, also known as “sleep technicians”) perform the diagnostic tests necessary to help understand why patients have trouble sleeping. By recording patient brain and breathing activity overnight, PSTs gather the data doctors need to treat patients and help them improve their quality of rest.
