The patient should undergo overnight PSG prior to the MSLT
, and both studies, PSG and MSLT
, should be performed in a manner that reflects the patient's routine sleep/wake schedule.
Due to relatively small sample sizes, a duration-independent MSLT
model is used in this analysis to estimate average DFLE_t^i for older Americans at age t (t = 65, .
In addition to the latency of sleep, the MSLT
records the presence of sleep-onset REM periods (SOREMPs).
Only one daytime study using a modified MSLT
assessed alcohol's sleep effects during both the ascending and descending phase of the BrACs.
The 12 who were the sleepiest at the study's start, nodding off after six minutes or less during the initial MSLT
naps, improved the most.
shows evidence of pathologic sleepiness without sleep onset REMs (31).
Using eBURST analysis of the MSLT
database, we also examined isolates of S.
Patients taking NUVIGIL (150 mg/day) showed a statistically significant improvement over placebo as measured by the MSLT
studies have shown that patients with insomnia have normal, or longer than normal sleep latencies (18).
A routine polysomnogram with a follow up MSLT
is appropriate when investigating narcolepsy or idiopathic hypersomnolence.
for incorporation into their curriculum to provide an interactive e-Learning portal for physicians for pre-board exam PSG and MSLT
review and training.
results may vary with the age of the patient 32.
