A diagnostic sleep test will be performed called a Polysomnogram. This test records your normal sleep. We are looking to see what quality of sleep you are experiencing and if there is anything interfering with your sleep.
A CPAP Titration Test is performed on people who have sleep apnea. In sleep apnea, the patient's throat closes up and air cannot get into their lungs. The brain then arouses the patient from sleep to get the body to start breathing again. This is a test where we give the patient air to help them breathe continuously throughout the night.
A Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) is used to test how sleepy a patient is during the day and to test for narcolepsy. The patient takes five naps during the day; we are testing to see how long it takes the patient to fall asleep and how deep their sleep is.
Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT) is the opposite of an MSLT. The patient is tested five times during the day.in a dark, quiet room and we are testing to see how long they can stay awake.
