Sleep Testing

A sleep test, or sleep study is a way for physicians and other health professionals to see your sleep in more detail.

A Level One test, or polysomnography, is the most in depth test and is usually done in a hospital-based sleep lab. It can help identify many different sleep disorders (including Sleep Disordered Breathing and Sleep Apnea).

Level Three testing, also called ambulatory testing, in the type of testing we do at MSC. If focuses more on Sleep Disordered Breathing and Sleep Apnea. It involves taking a sleep study device home, wearing it to bed for one night and bringing it back to us the next day. We download the information collected by the device and send it to an independent respirologist for interpretation. This ensures complete independence from the evaluation process. When we receive the report from the respirologist we send it to your physician.

The Alice PDX or Alice NightOne are the devices we use for Level Three testing. Please see videos on this page for more information.
