Polysomnography for the Shift Worker 

Within the Sleep Center we perform night time polysomnography with Cpap/Bipap titrations, oxygen titration, capnography, and nocturnal seizure/REM behavioral disoders with expanded EEG monitoring. We have the capabilities to record very small infants to adults - even severely overweight adults - that are unable to receive sleep studies at other facilities.

For patients that have difficulty with CPAP/Bipap titrations, we offer a desensitization program that enables patients to come to the center and try different equipment to see what is most comfortable and effective. This enables patients that may have a history of claustrophobia to try CPAP before their scheduled appointment. Multiple Sleep Latency Tests (MSLT) and Maintenance of Wakefulness Tests (MWT) are also offered for patients that have normal sleep studies but continue to complain of excessive daytime somnulence and narcolepsy. 

Frye Neurodiagnostics Laboratory 

Frye Regional’s Neurodiagnostics Laboratory plays an important role in detecting, evaluating and treating a wide range of sleep abnormalities and sleep related disorders. We offer six-hour video monitoring and can accommodate night shift workers by performing sleep studies during the day. 

The Center also offers neurodiagnostic testing such as:

  • Electroencephalograph (EEG) 
  • Polysomnography (PSG) 
  • Daytime Polysomnography 
  • Multiple Sleep Latency Testing (MSLT) 
  • Multiple Wakefulness Testing (MWT) 
  • CPAP Desensitization
