Why Get a Sleep Study?
A sleep study is a test – or series of tests – that is designed to monitor your sleep cycles to determine the cause of your sleeping problems and help you get the help you need to fix them. Sleeping problems include – but are not limited to – narcolepsy, insomnia, periodic limb movement disorder, sleepwalking, sleep paralysis, and sleep apnea.
Of all of these, sleep apnea is the most commonly treated, as many Americans suffer from breathing problems in their sleep. It is often caused by obesity, narrowed breathing passages, or a deviated septum.
Insomnia and narcolepsy are flip sides of the same coin. Both can be caused by fatigue, an upset circadian rhythm, or other factors.
Periodic limb movement disorder – otherwise called restless leg syndrome – is characterized by repeated, uncontrollable twitching of the arms or legs.
A sleep study will help diagnose what’s happening when you sleepwalk or when you wake up and cannot move (sleep paralysis). Once diagnosed, you’ll be able to take actions to correct the problem and get the rest that you so desperately need. Sleep disorders, after all, are not small problems. If you’re not getting proper sleep, you won’t function as well as you should. You could also be putting yourself or others in danger during the day. Imagine what might happen if you fell asleep at the wheel on your drive to work.
What to Expect
Every sleep study is slightly different, but there are a few basic kinds of sleep study that you can expect when you come in to Sleep Rite, depending on your sleep problems. A polysomnogram will test your brain activity, body movement, airflow, and the carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in your bloodstream as you sleep. This is the most common type of sleep study for patients suffering from sleep apnea.
If you have trouble getting to sleep, you will probably get a multiple sleep latency test (MSLT). If you suspect that you’re narcoleptic, you’ll most likely get a maintenance of wakefulness test (MWT). Whatever your symptoms, if you contact us at Sleep Rite today for a sleep study in New Orleans, Louisiana, you’ll be on your way to a good night’s sleep in no time.
