What Is Sleep Disorder Screening?
Sleep studies are specialized tests that monitor what happens to your body during sleep. The studies are done to determine what is causing your sleep problems. While the patient sleeps, the technician gathers data from a set of tests. This data is used to help physicians make an accurate diagnosis and develop a successful treatment plan that fits into your lifestyle.
What Types of Sleep Disorders Does Testing Help Diagnose?
At Sleep Health Solutions, we support testing for a wide range of sleep problems, including:
Where Does Diagnostic Sleep Testing Take Place?
Depending on the diagnostic testing that you need, you may have a choice of where you want to have your sleep problems evaluated. Sleep Health Solutions performs testing in our comfortable clinical space and supports at-home testing procedures.
Do You Work with Healthcare Providers?
Yes. We gladly accept patient referrals. You and your patient can avoid scheduling delays and the inconvenience associated with the limited availability of sleep labs.
Sleep Health Solutions offers a unique service to physicians and physician groups by providing sleep screening for “at-risk patients” with multiple co-morbidity conditions. Our test results offer a clear snapshot of the patient’s sleep health that assists doctors in forming a diagnosis and a plan for therapy. Reports provided also help identify patients who would benefit from more extensive sleep analysis procedures such as PAP titration, fitting for dental devices, or surgical solutions.
How Do You Test for Sleep Disorders?
Specialized sleep technicians use the latest diagnostic equipment available to collect accurate data about your sleep patterns and movement. All testing procedures are non-invasive and we work to make everyone as comfortable as possible.
Types of Sleep Study Tests
This type of study is used to detect a multitude of sleep disorders. It records physiological information during sleep, including brain activity, eye movement, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, heart rate, breathing and airflow through your mouth and nose, snoring, and muscle movements.
Sleep Study CPAP Test
CPAP titration studies are performed in the sleep lab. The purpose is to accurately calibrate the CPAP machine used to manage sleep disordered breathing conditions, including sleep apnea, hypoventilation, and hypoxemia. It can be done either following the initial testing and diagnosis or in the second part of a single split-night study.
Multiple Wake Test (MWT)
Also known as Maintenance of Wakefulness Testing, this assesses your level of alertness. You will be asked to stay awake without napping during the testing period. Then, a polysomnogram will be used to monitor how your body responds and if you are able to stay awake in a calm environment.
Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT)
MSLT tests for excessive daytime sleepiness by monitoring how quickly the person falls asleep in a quiet atmosphere. This full-day test uses sensors to determine when you are asleep and the sleep stage.
What Treatments Are Available?
Recommended treatment plans will depend on the results of your sleep analysis. We will work with your primary care physician to develop the best plan for therapy to support your overall wellness. For some, treatment may mean adopting new bedtime routines and improving sleep hygiene. For others, treatment may involve medications or nighttime use of a CPAP machine.
When Can I Arrange Diagnostic Sleep Testing?
Our staff is happy to work with your schedule. We provide daytime studies to accommodate shift workers and are available to conduct overnight studies seven days a week.
