NYC Sleep Profiler™
(Sleep Monitor to Assess Sleep Disorders)
What is the Sleep Profiler™?
The Sleep Profiler™ is an at-home assessment that evaluates sleep architecture to screen for possible breathing-related sleep disorders. Full disclosure signals are acquired from the device worn on your forehead and provide total time and percentage sleep, REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, SWS (slow-wave sleep), sleep efficiency, the total and average number of cortical, sympathetic and behavioral arousals, and the frequency and intensity of snoring.
If you have trouble sleeping through the night and suspect that you may be suffering from a sleep disorder, Dr. Marc Bowen may recommend the Sleep Profiler™ as an evaluation. Contact us to find out if you’re a good fit.
What is involved with the Sleep Profiler™?
With the at-home Sleep Profiler™ you’ll be provided with a small device that you will wear overnight and may be asked to keep a sleep diary for the night. You will take the lightweight and easy-to-use device home and wear it around your head while you sleep. The Sleep Profiler™ will collect the data.
After your test, you will return the device to Dr. Bowen so he can interpret your results. You will then make a follow-up appointment to discuss your results with Dr. Bowen.
