Home Sleep Test (HST)
Home sleep testing is available for select patients if they are at high risk for obstructive sleep apnea and they do not have other serious medical problems. The test involves using a portable monitoring system that is small enough for you to use in your home.
Overnight Sleep Study
Doctors call this study a polysomnogram, and it is one of the best tests for detecting a variety of sleep disorders. It is often used to detect sleep-related breathing disorders, such as sleep apnea. During the study, sensors monitor how your body acts while you sleep. Charts are made of many physical measurements, including your brain waves, heartbeats and breathing. Your sleep study provides your doctor with the data that will help determine the cause of your sleep problem.
This study is similar to an overnight sleep study, but adds continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). This study is used to set the right air pressure for CPAP therapy in patients with sleep apnea.
Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT)
This sleep study is used to determine how alert you are during the day by showing whether or not you are able to stay awake for a defined period of time.
Doctors call this study a multiple sleep latency test (MSLT). A MSLT measures how quickly you fall asleep during quiet daytime situations and how quickly you enter REM (dreaming) sleep. REM sleep is a stage of sleep that is characterized by rapid eye movements, more dreaming and body movement, and faster pulse and breathing rates. The MSLT is used to determine if you have sleep disorders such as narcolepsy.
