Sleep Studies for the Shift Worker
Within the Sleep Center we perform night time sleep studies with Cpap/Bipap titrations, oxygen titration, capnography, and nocturnal seizure/REM behavioral disorders with expanded EEG monitoring. We have the capabilities to record very small infants to adults - even severely overweight adults - that are unable to receive sleep studies at other facilities.
For patients that have difficulty with CPAP/Bipap titrations, we offer a desensitization program that enables patients to come to the center and try different equipment to see what is most comfortable and effective. This enables patients that may have a history of claustrophobia to try CPAP before their scheduled appointment. Multiple Sleep Latency Tests (MSLT) and Maintenance of Wakefulness Tests (MWT) are also offered for patients that have normal sleep studies but continue to complain of excessive daytime somnolence and narcolepsy.
