(This procedure/test may also be known as: MSLT)
A multiple sleep latency test is a series of nap studies (4-5) which is performed following an overnight sleep study or polysomnography.
The first nap will begin approximately 2-3 hours after being awakened from the sleep study. Each nap lasts 20-35 minutes. There will be 2 hours separating each nap. You should expect the testing to be finished no later than 3 p.m.
Between naps, your child is not allowed to fall asleep, lie down or sit in bed.
Reminders for day of test:
