Sleep Tech Duties

A sleep technician is responsible for working with respiratory therapists, sleep technologists and physicians to evaluate sleep patterns of individual patients. By monitoring sleep patterns, the sleep technician can determine whether or not a patient has a sleep disorder. Also known as a polysomnographic technician, sleep techs are responsible for helping patients decide what type of sleep disorder they have, as well as advising them on the proper procedures and treatment plans available to help them achieve the best sleep. Sleep techs will perform tests, prepare equipment and run diagnostics while under the supervision of a clinical director or sleep technologist. A sleep technician should also exhibit qualities of patience, compassion, critical thinking skills and great teamwork.

Sleep Tech Education Requirements

While a college degree is not required for entry into a sleep technician field, it is highly advised to pursue an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in order to increase your chances and gain an edge over your competitors in the job market. Sleep technicians are required to completed 6-12 months of polysomnographic training from an accredited tech school, as well as acquire proper CPR certifications. Other basic medical certifications may be required. If you wish to advance your career further, you can obtain certification by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists as well as additional credentialing that may be beneficial for salary or job title advancements. Aside from the required certifications, a sleep technician is required to have a steady hand, a compassionate heart and an eye for detail.

Sleep Tech Job Market

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, sleep technicians have the potential to earn more than entry-level techs based on credentialing or previous experience. Fortunately, the job market predicts a 34% increase in demand for sleep technicians over the next 10 years, making it one of the most rapidly-growing positions in the health technician field. This is an opportune time to mark your career as a sleep technician.
