Multiple Sleep Latency Test

Multiple Sleep Latency Test measures the amount of daytime sleepiness you may suffer from if you have a sleeping disorder. There will be electronic sensors monitoring your activity and as soon as you fall asleep you will be woken up again. This test is conducted during the day and you will be asked to stay in a darkened room in the sleep centre. The test is repeated up to five times during the same day, measuring your “sleep latency”. If you have sleep latency of around 15-25 minutes then this is considered normal, anything below this and you will be considered as possibly suffering from some form of sleep disorder and further tests may need to be carried out.
