13’s Tori Mason visited Stormont Vail’s Sleep Center to experience the bedtime process.
Patients are instructed to come to the sleep clinic near bedtime. Sleep technologists then spend an hour attaching 26 sensors all over your body.
All of those sensors are measuring vitals like brain activity, eye movement, blood pressure and heart rate so doctors can best diagnose a potential sleep disorder.
“The eye movements here are in blue, then the channels down below are the brain waves in black,” said Stormont-Vail Sleep Center Manager Jenny Kwong.
