WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW FOR MY SLEEP STUDY?
As we have several locations, please be aware and make note of the CSCC sleep center, suite number, and entry instructions for the specific location where your study is scheduled.
WHAT IS AN MSLT OR MWT
Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) / Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT) The MSLT test for excessive daytime sleepiness works by measuring how quickly you fall asleep in a quiet environment during the day. Also known as a daytime nap study, the MSLT is the standard tool used to diagnose narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia. The Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT) is used to measure how alert you are during the day. It shows whether you can stay awake for a defined period. This is an indicator of how well you can function and remain alert in quiet times of inactivity.
