Outpatient sleep diagnostics with the latest polysomnograph:

Maximum patient comfort - easy to use - informative findings

Many people suffer from difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep (insomnia) and are familiar with the excruciating waking phases and insomnia at night followed by chronic exhaustion during the day. Often these sleep disorders are connected with stress in the professional or private sphere and a "vicious circle" develops. Sleep disorders mean stress for the soul, especially for the body, since it lacks the important regeneration during sleep. On its own and without competent psychobiological and getting medical help out of here can often be difficult, if not impossible.


Outpatient polysomnography enables the continuous recording of many relevant body functions throughout the night - while you sleep in your own bed at home. No inpatient stay in a sleep laboratory is necessary. With the help of the recordings, an individual sleep profile can be created so that a well-founded diagnosis is possible as the basis for a promising therapy.
In addition to sleep diagnostics, the stress hormone cortisol and the sleep hormone melatonin can provide important information about the interplay between stress and sleep as well as a possibly disturbed circadian rhythm. These two hormones can be measured easily and non-invasively in saliva. In the morning, cortisol mobilizes the body's energy reserves and decreases over the course of the day. The so-called cortisol wake-up reaction (CAR) in saliva serves as a scientifically recognized method for assessing the activity and reactivity of cortisol release (Hellhammer et al., 2007, Stalder et al., 2016) and as a marker for chronic stress. The production of melatonin is low during the day and, in contrast to cortisol, is only started up by the body in the evening when the light intensity decreases in order to prepare it for the night - we get tired. A functioning interaction of these hormones is crucial in order to create good conditions for a restful sleep.
Our subjective perception of the duration of sleep, time of falling asleep and frequency of waking up often do not agree with the objective information. Therefore, a scientifically sound diagnosis is a sensible basis for individual measures. Take the time to analyze your sleep behavior. We would be happy to advise you individually on the appropriate measures.
