In addition, hyperarousal may account for longer than expected sleep latencies on MSLT
tasks and potentially create a barrier to consistent SWS.
On the night prior to an MSLT
, the patient is typically brought into the sleep laboratory in order to perform the nocturnal polysomnogram.
If a patient has experienced EDS > 3 months and reports at least 5 episodes of cataplexy a sleep study and MSLT
does not need to be performed.
(4) Idiopathic hypersomnia is characterized by EDS that occurs in the absence of cataplexy and is accompanied by no more than 1 sleep-onset REM (SOREM) period on an MSLT
and the preceding PSG combined.
PD patients should undergo thorough sleep evaluation consisting of solicitation of the chief complaint; detailed social, family, medical, psychiatric, and sleep history; physical examination; and, if necessary, objective sleep testing with polysomnography and the MSLT
Treatment efficacy was measured both clinically and objectively through PSG follow-up with overnight recordings and MSLT
two weeks after each IVIg cycle.
However, it offers advantages in terms of low cost and easy application, although MSLT
is an objective neurophysiologic test measuring sleepiness.

The isolate was also genotyped by MSLT

): a standard measure of sleepiness," Sleep, vol.
In the diagnosis, multiple sleep latency test (MSLT
) and CSF hypocretin measurement are needed in addition to appropriate clinical history.
