Somniloquy Sleep Education Institute is a brand new Sleep Technology School scheduled to open in April 2021
Somniloquy Sleep Education Institute is located at 2040 East Murray Holladay Rd. Suite 102-B, Holladay, Utah 84117.
Our school is small but has four rooms dedicated to student and faculty use. The school is equipped with a full polysomnography system, a queen-sized murphy bed, and all electrodes, sensors, and hookup materials needed to prepare for and complete a polysomnography and gain clinical experience in doing so.
Our school provides mannequins
for students to practice hands on skills and electrode application while minimizing student contact during the COVID-19 pandemic. These include a CPR mannequin and AED trainer to give students an opportunity to practice medical emergency response skills.
Each student will have a desk and chair separated by a minimum of 6 feet. The facility is also equipped with a whiteboard and projector to assist with teaching and student learning.
The school offers a small library of textbooks, study guides, and other learning tools to help students prepare to pass their class quizzes and final examinations, as well as the credentialing examination offered through the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT)
What is Sleep Technology
Sleep technicians and sleep technologists are allied health professionals with specialized knowledge and training in sleep medicine, sleep disorders, and diagnostic procedures which collect physiogical data to assist in the diagnosis of sleep disorders. The most common of these diagnostic procedures is polysomnography.
Polysomnography includes the process of analyzing, monitoring and recording physiologic data during sleep and wakefulness. Polysomnography records electroencephalograms (EEG), electrooculograms (EOG), electromyograms (EMG), electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG), pulse oximetry, airflow and respiratory effort measurements to assist physicians in the diagnosis of sleep disorders. Sleep technologists must learn where and how to apply the electrodes and sensors used to obtain this information. They must also learn how to monitor and analize these signals to identify normal and abnormal events which may occur during sleep versus wakefulness.
Additionally, sleep technologists may apply and titrate treatment modalities to assist the physician in determining the most effective treatment modalities and treatment settings.
