INDICATIONS FOR POLYSOMNOGRAPHIC TESTING

Sleep has an important impact on general state, perception-reaction time, alertness and performance. Good sleep improves physical and mental health and improves life quality and expectancy. Sleeping disorders are widespread and may have various symptoms. Clinical studies convincingly demonstrate that sleeping disorders not only degrade the quality of life, but are also often accompanied by the development of arterial hypertension, arrhythmia, cerebral accidents, type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome followed by excessive weight gain.

THE PROCEDURE OF THE TEST

At the Sleep Laboratory, we perform polysomnographic studies that are followed by an examination in the Center (depending on the revealed pathology) and the development of a treatment plan.

We offer various therapy programs performed at the Sleep Laboratory following a free-of-charge somnologist’s consultation:

Daytime examination

Diagnostics of daytime sleepiness and narcolepsy (MSLT test);

Multiple latency sleep test is performed in cases of increased daytime sleepiness for quantitative assessment of the time needed to fall asleep. Pathologic somnolence is marked by an average sleep latency of less than 5 minutes. Pathological narcolepsy is manifested by low latency during the REM. An objective study of daytime sleepiness is also recommended to individuals that have flexible work time and shift-based working hours. MSLT test (multiple sleep latency test) consists of several daytime sleep sessions at two-hour intervals, and is intended to establish the degree of daytime sleepiness.

The test starts at 9:00 and and lasts until 14:00 or 16:00.

For the duration of nighttime diagnostic and therapeutic studies patients are accommodated in comfortable private rooms.
