Example text

Most research studies of the effects of medication or interventions on sleep architecture include an adaptation night to attempt to control for this effect. In contrast, some patients with psychophysiologic insomnia may fall asleep more easily in a new environment. Determining sleep onset is an important part of sleep staging. The usual progression at sleep onset is from stage Wake (eyes open) to drowsy wakefulness (eyes closed) and finally to stage 1 sleep. In general, the EEG in stage Wake with the eyes open is composed of low-amplitude, high-frequency activity.

In the present case, the tracing shows the presence of a K complex and no slow wave activity. Therefore, the sleep is stage 2. Note that the K complex is transmitted to the eye leads, resulting in deflections in the EEG and eye leads that are in-phase. This occurs when all channels are calibrated with the same polarity (by convention, negative polarity up). Clinical Pearls I. Stage 2 is scored when one or more sleep spindles or K complexes are noted but the epoch does not have enough slow wave activity to meet criteria for stage 3 sleep.
