ABOUT THIS COURSE
This entry-level module is designed to provide students with a comprehensive foundation in the performance of a diagnostic sleep study, from evaluation of study type through application of electrodes, hardware and software operation, troubleshooting, as well as the monitoring of patients undergoing testing. Students will undertake classes exploring normal sleep and normal physiology during sleep and progress to coverage of common abnormalities seen during sleep, including brain function (EEG) abnormalities, respiratory problems (sleep disordered breathing), cardiac arrhythmias and movement disorders. Students will gain experience with two (2) polysomnography systems used widely throughout Australia and internationally, in the recording and analysis of sleep data:

Compumedic Grael 2

Philips Respironics G3

Learning material will be presented via lectures/tutorials and overnight practical sessions. Upon conclusion of the module, students will be required to confidently and efficiently provide full diagnostic PSG service for two patients per night. Successful completion of this module will enhance students’ employability in private and public sleep laboratories/clinics and sleep research centres.

WHAT IS A SLEEP TECHNICIAN?
A Sleep Technician is a person who is trained in polysomnography – setup and monitoring of patients to investigate sleep problems. The majority of their work is performed in the evening and/or overnight. There are daytime roles for Sleep Technicians and Sleep Technologists such as sleep study scoring and analysis, and performing MSLT’s (Multiple Sleep Latency Tests or Maintenance of Wakefulness Tests). Polysomnography (PSG) (many-sleep-to write) is the application of multiple electrodes and sensors to monitor various parameters of sleep, such as brain activity, respiration and gas exchange, cardiac rhythm and body movement.
