Recorders, Electronic Storage, Data, Sleep/Awake
Definition : Electronic storage data recorders designed to measure and record the amount, type, and timing of sleep typically during overnight or in 24-hour periods. These recorders usually consist of a small portable unit worn on the belt and physical parameter (e.g., electrooculograph, electromyograph) sensor electrodes attached to the patient's body. Recorders can store information analogous to that obtained in polysomnography studies, but for a limited set of parameters. Sleep/awake electronic storage recorders are used for ambulatory and/or home assessment of sleep disorders, such as hypersomnia and somnambulism.
