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
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.
