Fast, accurate, affordable sleep-scoring services

We know that no two sleep laboratories are the same. That is why Sleep Strategies registered technologists have extensive experience and knowledge on more than 14 different sleep software technologies. When you need accurate scoring by registered technologists with years of experience, you need Sleep Strategies.

When you send us your completed Sleep Strategies scoring questionnaire and samples of your best internally-scored studies, our registered technologists gain full knowledge of your laboratory, scoring standards and procedures immediately.

Our sleep-scoring reports—adult, pediatric and screening—are each created using the same report templates you use in your laboratory. It’s like having our sleep-scoring team working right beside you without having to provide office space.

We offer guaranteed turn-around times—same-day, 24, 48, or 72 hours—and no start-up or cancellation fees. We always work to the highest standards of quality in the sleep-scoring industry. You have our word on that.

Adult scoring

Our scoring is performed

only by registered technologists

. We score for a variety of patient sleep studies, including

  • full- and split-night polysomnograpms (PSGs);
  • continuous and bilevel positive airway pressure titrations  (CPAP) and (bi-level);
  • multiple sleep latency tests (MSLTs); and
  • maintenance of wakefulness tests (MWTs)
  • extended EEGs  

Looking for sleep scoring that is performed manually, by an experienced, registered technologist and meets the standards set by Rechtschaffen & Kales (R&K), the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT), and revised American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) guidelines?
You’ve found it, at Sleep Strategies.

Pediatric Scoring

Consider this:

  • According to the National Institutes of Health National Centre on Sleep Disorder Research, more than two million American children suffer from sleep disorders.
  • It’s estimated—conservatively—that approximately 30–40 percent of children do not sleep enough.
  • Pediatric polysomnography is one of the fastest-growing areas of sleep medicine.
  • Scoring infant and pediatric data is much more complex than adult data.

Many other companies cannot offer pediatric sleep scoring because of the precise training and experience it requires. Sleep Strategies is one of the very few companies in North America that employs registered technologists who are qualified to perform pediatric sleep scoring. Our team members have extensive experience working with pediatric patients, and are highly regarded for their specific skills and knowledge in this unique discipline.

Ambulatory scoring

Ambulatory scoring, or screening studies, are increasingly popular as they are able to shorten the time between diagnosis and either treatment or full testing.

Health-care organizations, including homecare companies and research facilities, are beginning to incorporate this form of diagnostic testing as the sleep medicine industry continues to grow. For the best accuracy and integrity, the AASM recommends these studies be scored manually by registered technologists. At Sleep Strategies, we agree. That’s why we only hire qualified and experienced registered technologists for all our sleep scoring.
