275 R ecognition of the importance of EEG arousals in determining daytime function was facilitated by the development of the multiple sleep latency test (MSLT) as an objective measure of physiological sleepiness. Once the MSLT was incorporated into routine clinical practice, Roth et al 1 found that of all EEG-based sleep parameters, shifts to stage one sleep were the best predictors of sleepiness, as measured by the MSLT, in patients with sleep ap-nea. This was an unexpected finding given the… CONTINUE READING
