Polysomnography is the physiologic recording of variables such as brain waves, eye movement, muscle tone, breathing and heart rhythm during sleep. More than 80 different types of sleep disorders have been identified, with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) symptoms occurring in 1 out of every 20 people. Graduates of the program will enter the field as polysomnographic technicians and will be prepared to sit for the national exam administered by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) to gain the Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) credential
Students must be accepted into the program by both MCC and JCCC. It is the student's responsibility to check with an MCC counselor or advisor before enrollment.
