Sleep Studies (Polysomnagrams)

This includes an overnight stay in our Sleep Center. Your heart rate, respiration, muscle activity and brain waves are continuously monitored and recorded while you sleep. This may require either a complete diagnostic study, or a splitnight study consisting of a diagnostic study followed by treatments with CPAP for sleep-related breathing disorders. Measurements are recorded using non-invasive, painless means - without the use of needles.

Multiple Sleep Latency Test

This is a series of mini nap studies usually performed during the day after your initial sleep study. The study assesses the degree of daytime sleepiness and is useful in diagnosing narcolepsy and other conditions that lead to excessive daytime sleepiness.

CPAP Titration

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, you may be asked to participate in an overnight study to attempt a trial with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). CPAP therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical way to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea. During the trial, you will be fitted with a small, comfortable mask that goes over the nose. This mask is hooked up to a CPAP unit, which delivers a constant supply of air pressure to keep the back of the airway open, stops disruptive snoring and enables you to achieve restful and deep sleep with no interruptions during the night.

Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT)

HSAT is a sleep study used for the diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The HSAT is a small, portable device that monitors airflow, respiratory effort and pulse oximetry. The HSAT device is picked up at the Sleep Center for use overnight at home, and you are given instructions on how to use the device by a Registered Sleep Technologist. This test is considered appropriate in patients who have had a comprehensive sleep evaluation, have a high pre-test probability for OSA and do not have other significant medical conditions.
