The Sioux Falls Sleep Center offers a wide array of sleep testing and studies. We will help guide you through the process with your ordering physician, and guarantee the best care possible.
POLYSOMNOGRAPHY (Night Time Sleep Study)
Polysomnography is a polygraphic recording during sleep of multiple physiologic variables related to the state and stages of sleep to assess possible biological causes of sleep disorders.
A split-night study consists of the polysomnography (diagnostic portion) and also the titration (treatment portion) in one night of testing.
TITRATION POLYSOMNOGRAPHY (Second Night Sleep Study)
The titration is the treatment part of the sleep study. The titration polysomnography is a sleep study dedicated to identifying the treatment for sleep apnea with positive airway pressure.
MULTIPLE SLEEP LATENCY TEST (Daytime Nap Study)
During this test the main objective of the study is to identify those at risk for narcolepsy and appreciate the degree of sleepiness the patient may have.
MAINTENANCE OF WAKEFULNESS TESTING (MWT)
This is a specialized test during the daytime that also consists of the patient being asked to sit still in a darkened room and attempt to avoid falling asleep. This specialized test is designed specifically to answer requirements by the Department of Transportation for commercial drivers or pilots who have to prove the ability to maintain their license.
Home Sleep Test
Newer technologies allow for a screening of sleep apnea in the patient’s home. These devices are portable and small enough to allow the patient to be tested in his or her own bed.
The Sioux Falls Sleep Center will help guide you through multiple devices that are available and arrange for your testing.
