OLOL Sleep Center features four private and comfortable sleep study rooms to help make you feel at home during sleep evaluations.
If you are scheduled to participate in one of our Sleep Center studies, please download this form for instructions.
Sleep Center team members are specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders, including:
- Sleep-disordered breathing or snoring, which may be caused by certain obstructive or central nervous system disorders
- Daytime sleepiness or insomnia resulting from conditions such as sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome
- Problems staying awake resulting from conditions such as narcolepsy
Our sleep laboratory is open seven nights a week and provides a comfortable testing environment for optimal results. A patient may be tested using one or more of the following sleep study methods:
Polysomnographic Study (PSG)
This procedure records a variety of body functions during sleep, including electrical activity of the brain, heart rate, muscle activity, eye movement, breathing, airflow through the nose and mouth and blood oxygen levels.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Study
CPAP is used to treat sleep apnea. This study is similar to the routine PSG, followed by initiation and evaluation of your CPAP needs.
Multiple Sleep Latency Test
This test measures how long it takes to fall asleep. A video camera is used to record movements during sleep.
Multiple Wake Test (MWT)
This test, also called maintenance of wakefulness test, measures your ability to stay awake during a designated wakeful time.
