We offer faster, less expensive and more comfortable ways for diagnosing and treating a variety of sleep disorders. Sleep studies are an important part of diagnosing sleep disorders. For instance, as many as 85% of men and 90% of women with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have never been treated.
Types of sleep studies
Known as the baseline sleep study, PSG records your brain waves, the oxygen level in your blood, heart rate and breathing as well as eye and leg movement during sleep.
CPAP titration is an in-lab study used to calibrate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy.
Split sleep study
Split sleep studies are divided between PSG and CPAP titration. Split PSG is performed when moderate or severe sleep apnea has been discovered, or strongly suspected during the first part of the test; the second part is a CPAP titration.
Multiple sleep latency test (MSLT)
MSLT is a daytime in-lab study used to measure the time elapsed from the start of your daytime nap period to the first sign of sleep, called sleep latency. MSLT is also used to diagnose sleep disorders, including narcolepsy.
Home sleep study (HST)
HST is an unattended test used to diagnose OSA. Patients receive portable units to take home and wear overnight.
After filling out the necessary forms, you will be asked to undergo a few preparations before the study, including:
- No naps
- No products in hair
- No braids or dreadlocks
- No caffeine
