Types of Tests Performed at the Sleep Center
  • Home Sleep Testing (HST)

The Home Sleep Test (HST) is an overnight test conducted outside of the hospital setting. Using a small device with attached sensors, this type of testing monitors heart rate, breathing effort, and oxygen levels, and can be used to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea in some patients.

The Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) is a test conducted the next day after an overnight Polysomnography test and checks for excessive daytime sleepiness by measuring how quickly you fall asleep in a quiet environment during the day. The test typically consists of five scheduled nap periods during the day. The MSLT sleep test is used to help diagnosis narcolepsy and idiopathic Hypersomnia.

The Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT) test is used to measure how alert you are during the day. It helps to show whether you can stay awake for a defined amount of time. The test is performed in the Sleep Center and consists of four sleep trial periods. 

Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a disorder that afflicts more than 12 million people in the United States. It is the main reason patients are referred to the Sleep Center. Some signs of OSA include:

  • Awakening not rested in the morning
  • Falling asleep at inappropriate times
  • Constant daytime sleepiness
  • Loud, disruptive snoring
  • Morning headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Limited attention and concentration
  • Not remembering things during the day, memory loss
