How to prepare for a sleep study?
Preparing for a Level 1 PSG (Polysomnography) sleep test involves certain steps to ensure the accuracy of the results and make the testing process more comfortable. Level 1 PSG is a comprehensive sleep study that monitors various aspects of your sleep, such as brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and more. Here are some steps to help you prepare:
1. Inform your Sleep Technician about any prescription or over-the-counter medications you are currently taking, as some drugs may interfere with the test.
2. Avoid excessive caffeine and alcohol intake in the days leading up to the test, as they can disrupt your sleep patterns. Do not consume these substances on the day of the test.
3. Take a shower and wash your hair before the test, but avoid using hair products like gels or sprays, as they can interfere with electrode placement. Remove makeup, and don’t use lotions or creams on your face or body.
4. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing, such as pajamas, that you can sleep in. Avoid tight or restrictive clothing.
5. Arrive well-rested: Try to get a good night’s sleep the night before your PSG test. Being well-rested can help you fall asleep more easily during the test.
6. Stick to your usual bedtime routine as much as possible. Bring items that help you relax, such as a book, music, or a favorite pillow.
7. Try not to eat a large or heavy meal close to the time of the test, as this can cause discomfort while lying down. A light snack is acceptable if needed.
8. Please leave electronic devices, like smartphones and tablets, at home or hand them over to the Sleep Technician during your stay. Bring any personal items you need for the test, such as medications or a change of clothes for the following day.
9. Be sure to inform the Sleep Technician of any medical conditions, allergies, or other relevant health information.
10. Arrive at the appointed time to allow for setup and preparation. The test typically takes place at night and may require an overnight stay.
Note: Hotel accommodation is not included in the price of the testing service.
POLYSOMNOGRAM DIAGNOSTIC TEST
Is a diagnostic test that involves recording multiple systems in your body while you sleep. Key body systems monitored include your brain, heart, breathing and more. This test isn’t painful and usually only takes one night to complete. This test is also very common and can help diagnose many sleep-related conditions.
Polysomnogram Therapeutic Sleep Study
It involves continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) titration. It determines the pressure that the patient needs to open up his airways during sleep and treat the respiratory events.
Polysomnogram Combined/Split Night
is a combination of a Diagnostic study and a Titration study. It is performed when a patient shows signs of severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea. You would be started as a Diagnostic Sleep Study and if you show enough Obstructive Sleep Apnea events ( Apneas are total airway collapse, Hypopnea’s are partial airway collapse) within the first 2 hours of sleep ( emergency setting would show symptoms of more than 20 events or more of airway or partial airway collapse per hour). You would be started on the treatment portion of the Sleep Study which is called a Titration(using Cpap) .
A multiple sleep latency test (MSLT) measures how sleepy a person is during their waking hours. It can help doctors diagnose causes of excessive daytime sleepiness, such as narcolepsy.
