Pediatric Multiple Sleep Latency Testing

We conduct the pediatric multiple sleep latency test (MSLT) the day after the overnight sleep study to determine the degree of daytime sleepiness your child is experiencing. We conduct five separate tests throughout the day in 2-hour intervals. The tests will be interpreted by our pediatric sleep physician. Results may take up to two weeks. The sleep lab will contact you when they're completed.

Instructions for Parents

  • Bring your child's pajamas for the overnight test and comfortable, casual clothes for the MSLT. You'll need toiletries to freshen up in the morning.
  • Feel free to bring your child's books, homework, crafts, etc. to pass the time between tests. A television and DVD player are available.
