THE 101 ON MULTIPLE SLEEP LATENCY TESTING
Has your doctor recommended that you undergo nap tests? Sometimes referred to as a multiple sleep latency test (MSLT), nap tests provide sleep specialists with a standardized method of quantifying sleepiness and diagnosing sleep disorders in individuals. Prior to taking a nap test, you will need an overnight diagnostic sleep test called a polysomnogram (PSG).
On the day following your PSG, you will be given a series of nap tests. You will be fitted with sensors on your head and chest and will be asked to try to fall asleep. During the tests, the sensors will record your muscle contractions, eye movements, brain wave activity, and heart activity to accurately determine whether you fall asleep.
