Polysomnographic technologists, or sleep technologists, embody a unique skillset and are valued, essential members in the healthcare field. They assist physicians specializing in sleep medicine with clinical assessments, physiological monitoring and testing, diagnostic and therapeutic tools, management, and treatment of sleep-related disorders in patients of all ages — from newborns to seniors.
