Registered Sleep Technologist Resume Samples

A Registered Sleep Technologist works under the supervision of a Polysomnographic technologist and performs tests and procedures that test the brain waves and functions of sleep patients. A well-drafted Registered Sleep Technologist Resume mentions the following core duties and responsibilities – performing studies and determining the cause of sleep disturbances, keeping records of patient progress, explaining to the patients the nature of procedures that will be performed on patients, and preparing them for the procedures. Other duties include keeping a regular eye on the effectiveness of the equipment and making sure all equipment works well.

Such technologists should have strong communication skills, and be able to observe patient’s symptoms and communicate with them about their level of progress. Good physical strength and the ability to lift patients from one bed to another, and to operate and set up heavy machinery is as well needed. To become one, students must earn a diploma in polysomnography and be licensed to work in the field.
