MSLT
  The MSLT follows the overnight sleep study the next day. This test is a series of five naps every two hours lasting approximately 20 minutes each. The purpose is to see if the patient falls asleep during these short periods of time, how long it takes to fall asleep and which stages of sleep the patient has during the intervals. It helps differentiate between narcolepsy and other disorders of excessive somnolence.

Following a sleep study, our technicians carefully compile results of all evaluations and provide them to sleep specialists who evaluate them and make treatment recommendations. All information is forwarded promptly to the patient's own physician for follow-up and additional treatment.
