Polysomnographic Technology (HHO)

Polysomnographic Technology is a health care profession that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with sleep disorders.  Polysomnographic technologists practice under physician direction and provide diagnostic procedures and therapeutic treatments for a wide variety of patients, from infants to the elderly. Polysomnographic technologists provide services in many settings including hospitals, clinics, and physician offices. These services are provided in sleep centers, which are set-up to have numerous single patient bedrooms for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. There is a main control room where the polysomnographic technologists monitor the patients during the sleep study. Individuals who graduate from the program can be employed as clinicians, managers, educators, and researchers.
