Multiple Sleep Latency Test
Also called a “Nap Test”, the multiple sleep latency test (MSLT) is the standard way to quantify sleepiness and diagnose disorders of excessive sleepiness. An overnight diagnostic sleep test called a polysomnogram (PSG) is required the night prior to the daytime MSLT. After the PSG is complete, a series of nap tests are spread out over the following day.
After being asked to try to fall asleep for each nap test, sensors on the head and chest record your brain wave activity, eye movements, muscle contractions and heart activity to accurately detect if you fall asleep.
The information we collect during your study is reviewed and analyzed by our sleep specialists.
