Sleep Disorders Lab at MidMichigan Medical Center-Midland
Diagnostic Testing for Sleep Disorders
The Sleep Disorders Lab offers these tests:
PSG is a noninvasive test used to diagnose sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome. Patients spend a night in the lab while surface electrodes placed on the head and other areas of the body monitor their sleep. Audio-visual monitoring is also performed. Private rooms with queen-size beds and other amenities help sleep lab patients feel at home.
Multiple Sleep Latency Tests (MSLT)
MSLT is a noninvasive test to diagnose narcolepsy. This test is usually performed the day after a PSG test. The patient takes five naps, which are monitored to see if the patient falls into rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. The presence of REM sleep in the daytime after a sufficient night’s sleep can indicate narcolepsy. The MSLT procedure is similar to PSG, but with fewer electrodes.
