The day I was at my interview with officer manager Lauren she offered to take me on a tour of everything she used to track sleep and to diagnose problems. She showed me lots of things and even showed me a track of a recent patient they had. This patient had bad apnea. The chart was divided into to parts which were when they turned on the machine to help the patient breath and when it was off so they could see if there was an improvement. Each of the two parts had how much the patient move, how long he stopped breathing and random times they woke up and some other things. When she showed me this I noticed it improved a lot once they turn on the machine. She also showed me another special job they had there and I think, I’m not so sure though that was the person who studied the sleep on paper and identified the problem. When she was touring me around she showed me different kinds of beds they use for different situations. One bed was designed for people who are a little bit overweight. The other bed she talked about was a Tempurpedic bed. this is meant for people who can’t sleep at a certain temperature. One cool tool I learned about when I went there was a camera that pat could capture even the slightest of movement and sound. I asked her why do they need to do that and she told me because snoring is actually not a healthy sign if it’s consistent through lots of days and not just a stuffy nose. The camera part of it was to capture unhealthy movements are things like sleepwalking and sleeptalking and other things that I can’t think of or know of. Here are some pictures.
