Overnight polysomnograms are used to diagnose a large variety of sleep disorders using a large variety of equipment. Typical sleep disorders diagnosed by a PSG are:

MSLTs are generally used to distinguish between narcolepsy and IH.

  • MWTs are usually administered either to see if previous prescribed treatments for certain sleep disorders are successful, or if one’s ability to stay awake in a certain occupation is a concern.
  • Insomnia is rarely tested by a PSG and is usually diagnosed by a simple consultation in discussing sleep troubles. However, if the insomnia is chronic with unexplained causes, a PSG might be used to help rule out any other underlying sleep disorder.
