Providers' Quick Guide


  • Diagnostic polysomnography – Standard sleep study
  • Titration studies – The application and adjustment of positive airway pressure therapy to quantify treatment
  • Mean sleep latency test (MSLT) – A procedure to help confirm or rule out narcolepsy and clarify other areas to investigate regarding hypersomnia
  • Maintenance of wakefulness test (MWT) – Measuring the patient’s ability to remain alert for a period of time in a quiet, relaxing, stimulation-free environment. Value and need of this test is most often associated with the transportation industry or where public safety is of paramount importance.
  • Home sleep apnea test (HSAT) – A procedure narrowly focused on a few indicators of obstructive sleep apnea. Unattended (self-administered), and due to limited data, it is inappropriate in the presence of some comorbidities and in the presence or suspicion of other undiagnosed or untreated sleep disorders. As with all polysomnography, interpretation by a provider boarded in sleep medicine is required by CMS and most third-party payers

In addition to suspected sleep concerns, we often discover, confirm or quantify comorbid or confounding conditions, e.g., nocturnal seizure activity, cardiac dysrhythmias and sleep-related phenomena not previously established.
