Glossary Term:
Polysomnogram

A comprehensive record of the biophysiological changes that occur during sleep used as a diagnostic tool in sleep medicine. A wearable sleep tracker can never be as accurate as a clinical polysomnogram. Movement detection and heart-rate measurements can, for example, mistake relaxation for sleep or fail to detect a fitful night of drifting in and out of consciousness.
