For this test you are required to come to our facility and spend the night. Our sleep technicians monitor these studies throughout the night.
We look at more than respiratory breathing disorders, for example EEG testing is also available on request. This is often used to help the physicians with concerns about seizure activity.
We actually monitor for all sleeping disorders.
Cpap/Bipap titration studies if the patient qualifies for treatment.
Retitration's are performed for those currently on CPAP or BiPap to redetermine the optimal pressure for treatment. This is helpful for those who feel that their treatment is no longer working well. Over time it is often necessary to change the pressure on the machines due to changes since first diagnosis; such as weight gain/loss or increased health problems which may affect the efficiency of the treatment.
Daytime Polysomnography testing.
Occasionally due to the shifts a person may work, it may be necessary to sleep during the day rather than the night. If you fall in this category please let the center know when making your appointment.
MSLT and MWT testing provided.
These are daytime nap tests which may help the physician to determine the degree of sleepiness a person suffers during the day. They may be ordered in the possibility of Narcolepsy or to help determine if treatments for sleep problems are effective.
Home Sleep Testing (HST).
Sleep apnea testing with approved devices may be done in the convenience of your home if you qualify. This is a decision your doctor will make based on certain criteria, clinical judgement and relative to the type of sleep disorder s/he suspects you may have.
PAP NAPs may be offered to patients who have tried PAP therapy at the center or at home and are intolerant of PAP therapy. This may be due to mask issues or intolerance to pressures.
