The recording of these signals is called a polysomnogram (PSG).  The sleep center performs the PSGs in accordance with the AASM practice parameters and published guidelines.

Home Sleep Testing

Overnight, often times two nights.  An evaluation of how your body fuctions during sleep.  Activites of you brain, heart, and lungs are recorded and stored in the portable device.  This test is also a Polysomnogram, but is done at home and is not attended by a Sleep Technologist.  The sleep center performs the Home Sleep Test in accordance with the AASM practice parameters and published guidelines.  This test is not for everyone as certain health conditions can be a contraindication for a Home Sleep Test.

Daytime Polysomnography

The recording of these signals is called a polysomnogram (PSG). The sleep center performs the daytime PSGs in accordance with the AASM practice parameters and published guidelines.

CPAP Titration 

If diagnosed with sleep disordered breathing the doctor might recommend a trial of titration with CPAP machine.  CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure.  This is an air pump that gently opens the airway with air pressure, as you sleep, to avoid closure of the airway from tissue in the neck and airway.  The sleep center performs the CPAP titrations in accordance with the AASM practice parameters and published guidelines.

BI-Level PAP Titrations 

If diagnosed with sleep disordered breathing, especially central sleep apnea, the doctor might recommend a trial with Bi-Level PAP machine.  This machine will deliver the same type air pressure as the CPAP machine, but with variations of 2 pressures, for comfort and necessity.  The sleep center performs the Bi-Level PAP titrations in accordance with the AASM practice parameters and published guidelines.  Bi-Level PAP titrations can include different versions of Bi-Level PAP such as Bi-Level Spontaneous, Bi-Level Spontaneous/Timed, and Auto Servo Ventilation.

MSLT Testing 

Multiple Sleep Latency Test This is a test of several opportunities to fall asleep/nap throughout the day to determine average sleep latency and presence of REM sleep for differential diagnosis of Narcolepsy.  MSLT may be indicated as part of the evaluation of patients with suspected Idiopathic Hypersomnia to help differentiate this from narcolepsy.  This test always follows an all night polysomnogram as proof of a previous nights 6-8 hours of sleep.  The sleep center performs the MSLTs in accordance with the AASM practice parameters and published guidelines.
