Sleep Disorder Tests Your Doctor Can Order

During sleep, a PSG, or recording, uses EEG and other physiologic measures to evaluate sleep disorders. The test is used to help evaluate patients who experience excessive sleepiness during the day or who have trouble falling asleep at night. Some common sleep disorders that can be diagnosed are:

  • Sleep Apnea - This is a disorder in which the breathing cycle becomes irregular while sleeping. In some cases, breathing can stop completely. This can have potentially dangerous consequences, as there may be a decreased supply of oxygen to the heart and brain.
  • Insomnia - If you are having trouble falling asleep at night, or you find yourself waking up frequently throughout the night you may have insomnia. Everyone experiences brief periods of insomnia, but if the problem is chronic it should be evaluated.
  • Narcolepsy - Some people, no matter how much they sleep, experience a continual irresistible need to sleep. These people may suffer from Narcolepsy and can fall asleep anytime while working, talking or even driving. They may also experience a periodic loss of muscle tone and sleep paralysis (the inability to move or talk upon waking).
