A Few Words

About Our
Sleep Lab

Sleep is an essential part of our health and well-being. So if you experience excessive fatigue throughout the day, difficulty sleeping at night, and/or loud snoring when you sleep, talk to your doctor; a sleep test might be the right next step for you. Most sleep problems and disorders can be diagnosed and are treatable in safe and effective ways. Sleep disorders may affect any age group and can lead to serious health problems.  

Our sleep clinic provides in-house and at-home sleep studies for referred patients 18 and over. Our in-house studies are conducted in private, comfortable rooms out of the way of normal hospital operations to provide the most comfort. A qualified sleep specialist will observe your sleep patterns, brain waves (EEG), heart rate, rapid eye movements, and more using monitoring devices attached to your body in order to better understand how your body functions as it sleeps and reach a diagnosis. If you qualify, an at-home study may also be an option for you. This allows for more flexibility and less stress in the initial testing, being completed in the comfort of your own home. 

Scheduling

A normal schedule for in-house studies typically has arrival at around 8:00 pm, the study beginning around 10:30 or 11:00 pm, and an out-the-door time the following morning by 6:00 or 6:30. Need something different? We can accomodate! If you have irregular sleep schedules, work third, second, or first shift, need to find childcare, need to do it on a weekday or weekend–whatever–we can work with you to find a time that fits your needs. And if you have any other specific sleeping needs, as in a support animal or anything else, discuss this with your study technician to work something out.  Call Central Scheduling to schedule your sleep study at (937) 386-3451.

Procedures 

There are three procedures we use to evaluate patient symptoms:

Polysomnograms (PSG) 

This test is performed between the hours of 8:00 PM and 6:00 AM. It is used to rule out sleep apnea, insomnia, night terrors, nocturnal desaturation, periodic leg movements (PLM) and other conditions of disruptive sleep.

Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) 

This test is performed during the daytime hours between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM. It is used to rule out narcolepsy, excessive daytime sleepiness and other conditions of excessive sleepiness. 

This procedure always precedes an overnight PSG and consists of a series of naps that occur at regular intervals throughout the day. The patient is monitored throughout the process, and EEG activity is recorded. This test determines the severity of the patient's excessive sleepiness.

Nasal CPAP/BIPAP Therapy (CPAP) 

This test is performed after the initial PSG test and indicates if the patient has moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea. During this study, the patient is placed on a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. A small mask is placed over the patient's nose/mouth. The machine forces air through the mask, allowing the patient to breathe without experiencing apneic episodes and thus allowing a more natural sleep pattern. The results of these procedures are interpreted by a Board Certified Sleep Physician, and the patient’s physicians will receive a final written report with the Board Certified Sleep Physician’s interpretation and any recommendations on CPAP/BIPAP settings, mask size, oxygen supplementation, etc.
