Sleep (PSG) Test

POLYSOMNOGRAM ("Sleep Test") This is the most common test. During the PSG, there is continuous monitoring of brain activity, breathing and of leg movements during sleep. This test allows the sleep specialist to diagnose the more common problems of sleep such as sleep apnea and periodic leg movements

Forms: Sleep Study/PSG Preparation

 

CPAP Test

If there is evidence for sleep apnea, you will be called back for continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) titration. This involves placing a mask over the nose and blowing in air at pressure to help prevent snoring and apnea. The pressure is gradually titrated upwards to find the right settings.
