West Region Sleep Center is a full service sleep diagnostic testing facility designed to evaluate all types of sleep disorders. Testing routinely performed includes:
Polysomnogram (PSG) - Polysomnography is a diagnostic test used mainly to uncover obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD), or parasomnias. During a PSG a number of physiologic variables are measured and recorded during sleep. These include: brain electrical activity, eye and jaw muscle movement, leg muscle movement, airflow, respiratory effort, EKG activity, and oxygen saturation.
CPAP Titration - CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. This test is used to determine effective treatments for OSA. Nasal CPAP therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical way to treat obstructive sleep apnea.
Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) - An MSLT is used to aid in the diagnosis of narcolepsy and other conditions causing hypersomnias. An MSLT consists of a series of five, twenty minute nap periods scheduled two hours apart. The patient is given five opportunities to sleep during their customary awake period. Measurements of the interval from the start of the nap period to the first sign of sleep are measured for each nap. During this test the patient attempts to fall asleep.
Maintenance Wakefulness Test (MWT) - An MWT is used to aid in evaluating sleepiness. An MWT is a daytime study following the evening of your sleep study. It begins two hours after normal rise time and involves a series of tests at set intervals throughout the day. During this test the patient is asked to stay awake.
Home Sleep Study (Portable Monitoring)- A Home Sleep Study is a simplified version of an overnight, attended sleep study/polysomnogram (PSG) that focuses on nocturnal breathing. Home sleep studies are only used to diagnose or rule out obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Because the emphasis is on breathing, it's possible to use fewer sensors. If you need a sleep study, your doctor will make a recommendation based on your specific situation whether you should have your test done in the lab or at home.
