Diagnostic Testing Services

Sleep Diagnostic Testing in Neptune, NJ

At Sleep Dynamics, diagnostic testing services are run by physicians who are board certified in sleep medicine with sub specialties of pulmonary medicine, psychiatry, neurology, and psychology and all our tests are performed by highly trained technologists. We offer the latest diagnostic technology and the highest level of comfort and care to ensure a successful outcome for the patient.

 

Overnight Sleep Study

  • Also called a Polysomnogram or PSG, a standard sleep study in one of our centers includes the following:
  • EEG (electroencephalogram) – monitors brain activity to document sleep stages
  • EOG (electrooculogram) – measures eye movement
  • EMG (electromyogram) – measures muscle activity for monitoring muscle tone as well as body movement, especially limbs
  • EKG (electrocardiogram) – monitors heart activity
  • Respiratory Airflow – measures airflow from nose and mouth to document respiratory disturbances
  • Respiratory Effort – monitors chest wall and abdominal movement to help determine specific respiratory disturbances
  • Pulse oximetry – measures the oxygen saturation level to distinguish changes during respiratory events
  • Snoring – monitors vibration of throat to determine snoring episodes
  • Body Position – monitors the effect of sleep position on sleep and breathing
  • Other parameters as determined by physician
  • Treatments for sleep and breathing disorders such as sleep apnea, including the administration of positive airway pressure (PAP) and nocturnal oxygen, are frequently initiated during a PSG.
  • During a sleep study, the technologist is in constant video and audio contact with the patient, providing a safe, supportive environment with minimal anxiety. Our diagnostic suites have been designed to promote a relaxing atmosphere and a pleasant patient experience. We offer full-size beds, bathrooms with showers and a light breakfast (such as muffins and bagels) so that patients can undergo a full sleep diagnostic procedure, wake up and start the day with minimal disruption to their lives.

 

Pediatric Sleep Study

Also called a pediatric polysomnogram or PSG.

Children require special attention when undergoing a sleep study. At Sleep Dynamics, we provide one-to-one care, meaning that every child has their own fully qualified sleep technician to oversee their visit with us; from arriving at the lab, to waking up the next morning. The ‘unknown’ can be more frightening for the parents than the child, so our staff are ready to answer questions before, during, and after the test.

 

Maintenance of Wakefulness Test

The Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT) is a way to evaluate the ability to stay awake during the day. An overnight diagnostic sleep study called a polysomnogram (PSG) is usually required the night prior to the daytime MWT. After the PSG is complete, the MWT testing is spread over the following day. There are 4 tests spaced 2 hours apart.

After being asked to stay awake, sensors on the head and chest record your brain wave activity, eye movements, muscle contractions, and heart activity to accurately detect if you fall asleep.

The information we collect during your study is reviewed and analyzed by our sleep specialists.

 

Multiple Sleep Latency Test

Also called a “Nap Test”, the multiple sleep latency test (MSLT) is the standard way to quantify sleepiness and diagnose disorders of excessive sleepiness. An overnight diagnostic sleep test called a polysomnogram (PSG) is required the night prior to the daytime MSLT. After the PSG is complete, a series of nap tests are spread out over the following day.

After being asked to try to fall asleep for each nap test, sensors on the head and chest record your brain wave activity, eye movements, muscle contractions and heart activity to accurately detect if you fall asleep.
