Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT)

You will come to the sleep center where you will be instructed in the use of a portable sleep unit which you will take home and set up in the convenience of your own home. After completion of your home study, you will return the unit to the hospital where the results will be evaluated by a physician.

Actigraphy

Actigraphy is a watch-like monitor that a patient takes home and wears continuously for a two-week period. Actigraphy is used to diagnose certain sleep disorders by monitoring activity levels throughout the day/night.

Multi Sleep Latency Test (MSLT)

This is a daytime test that is performed in the sleep center following an in-center sleep study. MSLT is generally done to rule out narcolepsy.

Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT)

This test is used to measure how alert a patient is during the day and if they are capable of staying awake for a period of time.
