Evaluation and Treatment for Sleep Disorders

A good night's sleep is on the way.

The first step to solving your sleep disorder is determining what happens during sleep time that might be causing your troubles. Your doctor will determine the type of test that is most appropriate for the symptoms you are having.

Your tests will be done in one of the Sleep Lab's four private rooms, set up for your comfort during both day and night studies. Sleep Labs are located at both the main campus as well as the Saints campus. For more information, please call:

Main Campus - 978-937-6090
Saints Campus - 978-934-8373 

During the testing period, laboratory technicians monitor brain waves, breathing, heart activity, muscle activity and other functions in order to uncover the source of sleep problems. The results of these tests are reviewed and interpreted. A report is sent to the ordering physician with recommendations for treatment and follow up. Treatment may include lifestyle changes, breathing aid devices and medications.

Sleep Testing Offered

  • Polysomnogram (PSG) - An all night diagnostic study for the diagnosis of sleep disorders. What to expect during this test
  • CPAP/BiLevel Titration - An all night therapeutic study to determine appropriate levels of CPAP or BiLevel Therapy for the treatment of sleep related breathing disorders such as sleep apnea. Involves use of a mask that covers the nose and/or face as well as the sensors used for a PSG. Air from the mask works as a pneumatic split to keep the airway from collapsing. What to expect during this test
  • Split Study - A combination study to diagnose and treat sleep related breathing disorders in one night if possible. Certain criteria for severity must be met. What to expect during this test
  • Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) - Includes both an all night diagnostic study and an all day series of naps. It is most commonly used to diagnose Narcolepsy. What to expect during this test
