MSLT (Multiple Sleep Latency Test)
The 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. It is generally done after a Full Channel PSG. The process involves assessing a series of 4-5 naps for duration of 20-35 minutes. Major parameters assessed are sleep latency and REM latency.
10-13 hours. Generally done during the daytime right after a Full PSG.
