Sleep Specialists Management (SSM) provides quality sleep studies and places strong emphasis on patient care with the overall goal of accurately diagnosing sleep disorders i.e., obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), central sleep apnea (CSA) and narcolepsy.
We provide the following services in our labs throughout Louisiana, as well as a satellite location in Andalusia, AL.
SSM can conduct a comprehensive array of sleep studies:
Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT)
MWT is a test meant to objectively measure your ability to stay awake, which can infer how sleepy you are. The test may be used to assess your response to treatment of various sleep disorders.
Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT)
MSLT is used extensively to test for narcolepsy, to distinguish between physical tiredness and true excessive daytime sleepiness, or to assess whether treatments for breathing disorders are working.
CPAP/BIPAP Titration Polysomnogram Study
This is the same study as the above PSG with the addition of CPAP/BiPAP treatment. The study is started on a low pressure that is adjusted throughout the night until the optimal pressure is obtained.
A polysomnogram is a multi-parametric procedure that measures bodily functions during sleep to assist in diagnosis sleep disorders.
