About the Sleep Study Scoring service Data
When we talk about sleep study data, we’re essentially talking about electroencephalogram for brain waves (EEG), electrooculogram for eye movements (EOG), and electromyogram for muscle activity (EMG). The data also includes electrocardiogram – for heart (EKG), snore sounds, as well as airflow and respiratory effort movements.
How to find a good sleep study scoring service?
There’re no secrets to finding a good sleep study scoring service provider. But what you can at least do is ensure the following:
1. The team must be trained / certified
Some clinics work with staff that is just not trained or certified in their field. And thus, their scoring cannot be trusted much. Ideally, the people who’ll be scoring the sleep files should be registered sleep technologists (RST) or registered polysomnographic technologists (RPSGT). And it is important that they’re routinely updated on the latest in their field.
2. Ask for references, for sure
If they’ve been in sleep scoring services for some time, the sleep techs should readily provide you references of which other sleep centers have used their services in the past, or about their current customers.
3. Other vital details you should seek out
Speak with the prospective sleep study data outsourcing service provider about their charges. Usually, the charges depend on factors like volume of studies per month, software used, and other services provided.
Do also spare an hour or two to browse their website. Merely this single thing will help you decide whether you should stick with the service provider or move on. Read through their ‘about us’ page so you can get to know their sleep specialists and staff, their contact details, history, and kind of other things.
If you get a chance, do speak with the team you’ll be working with – a little conversation will help both the sides know each other and pave way for a better understanding and communication.
