Diagnostic Testing Services

Sleep Diagnostic Testing in New Jersey

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 (PSG)

Also called a Polysomnogram or PSG, a standard sleep study in one of our centers monitors the following:

  • Brain waves
  • Eye movements
  • Heart rate
  • Breathing pattern
  • Blood oxygen level
  • Body position
  • Chest and abdominal movement
  • Limb movement
  • Snoring and other noise you may make as you sleep
  • Other parameters as determined by the physician

Polysomnography technologists monitor the patient throughout the night. If the patient needs assistance, they can talk to them through the monitoring equipment. The technician can come into the room to detach the wires if the patient needs to get up during the night.

During the study, the technologist may have the patient try a positive airway pressure (PAP) machine for sleep apnea. This is a device that consists of a mask through which a gentle stream of air is delivered to enhance the breathing.

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 oatmeal and cereals) 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 the patients brain wave activity, eye movements, muscle contractions, and heart activity to accurately detect if the patient falls asleep.

The information we collect during the 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 the patiens brain wave activity, eye movements, muscle contractions and heart activity to accurately detect if the patient falls asleep.

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