What is a split-night sleep study?
A split-night study, also called a split-night polysomnography, is an overnight sleep study that combines essential elements of a routine overnight polysomnography with a CPAP titration study. During the overnight sleep test, half of your sleep time is monitored with the traditional sleep test, and the other half of the night records your breathing patterns during the CPAP titration study.
What does a split-night polysomnography study involve?
During an overnight stay at our state-of-the-art sleep lab in NYC, patients will be comfortable and feel like they are staying at a comfortable and luxurious hotel. The overall feel for the test is similar to the routine overnight sleep study, but consists of two different tests during your sleep. The two tests consist of the following:
During the routine polysomnography testing phase, your body is monitored using polygraph recordings, which measure your body’s functions during rest. This advanced test can help diagnose a wide range of sleep disorders, which include narcolepsy, insomnia, and sleep apnea.
CPAP Titration Study
The second phase of a split-night sleep exam involves monitoring sleep apnea conditions and collecting information about your sleep apnea machine settings. Throughout this portion of the test, a sleep apnea machine will adjust to several different air pressure settings to determine the correct settings needed for your sleep apnea machine.
