Types of Sleep Tests for Sleep Disorders We Conduct

To diagnose your sleep problems, our experts often recommend an overnight sleep test at our sleep facility. Each sleep study is conducted using the most technologically advanced equipment available to ensure prompt and accurate results. Our facility offers patients a relaxing environment for sleeping with comfortable and private, homelike bedroom settings.

The diagnostic sleep testing performed at Serenity Sleep Laboratories are:

Polysomnogram (PSG)
A test designed to analyze a patients physical state during sleep. It is a painless test, which monitors sleep patterns, breathing patterns, heart function, brain waves, muscle activities, and other important factors.

Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT)

Nighttime seizure testing (EEG) 

Position monitoring 


CPAP Titration
The medical treatment phase of a sleep test.  After PSG analysis identifies a patient to have sleep disordered breathing, the patient is place on a CPAP machine with a mask or nasal pillows. The patient is then allowed to resume sleeping. The CPAP Machine is adjusted gradually throughout the night until snoring and Sleep Apnea episodes are effectively eliminated.

Split-Night PSG
A Split-Night Sleep Study enables a physician to diagnose/confirm the presence of Sleep Apnea and determine the optimal treatment air pressure for a CPAP machine in one overnight test. This study is especially beneficial if a patient has a previous known diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) (or high probability of having OSA) and after the physician has already discussed various treatment options with the patient and the patient already has a good idea of the treatment nature and value of using a CPAP machine.

Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) 
It is used to measure the time elapsed from the start of a daytime nap period to the first signs of sleep, called sleep latency. The test is based on the idea that the sleepier people are, the faster they will fall asleep. The MSLT can be used to test for narcolepsy, to distinguish between physical tiredness and true excessive daytime sleepiness, or to assess whether treatments for breathing disorders are working. Its main purpose is to serve as an objective measure of sleepiness. The test consists of four or five 20-minute nap opportunities that are scheduled two hours apart. The test is often performed after an overnight sleep study. During the test, data such as the patient's brain waves, EEG, muscle activity, and eye movements are monitored and recorded. The entire test normally takes about 7 hours.
The MSLT is used extensively to test sleepiness in a number of research protocols.
