Answer

Overnight sleep studies or polysomnograms may be done in sleep-disorder centers, at home, or as inpatient procedures. Indications include risk factors, symptoms or cardiovascular manifestations arising from sleep apnea, disorders of respiratory control, and chronic obstructive or restrictive lung disease.
