Diagnostic Criteria

We recommend the text Overview of the Diagnosis and Treatment of Narcolepsy by Roza Hayduk, M.D.

Please also explore some of the files that we have provided that relate to diagnosis. They are in pdf format and can be dowloaded with Acrobat Reader. "Teenage Narcolepsy" and "Case: Narcolepsy" highlight two different patients with narcolepsy and how to diagnose them. "Screening Questions" is another useful document for diagnosis.

"PSG Parameter", "MSLT", and "Actigraphy Parameter" are guidelines from the journal Sleep, for use of the Polysomnograph, Multiple Sleep Latency Test, and Actigraph, respectively, for diagnosis of narcolepsy.
