Formal sleep studies, such as the MSLT, can be used to document sleepiness and SOREMPs and to support a diagnosis of narcolepsy.
During the MSLT, the mean latency-to-sleep onset is less than 1 minute; SOREMPs occur during the fourth and fifth naps.
The presence of SOREMPs correlates strongly with the presence of narcolepsy.
