Sleepiness-Maintenance of wakefulness test

Recommended Posts

I told my sleep doctor that I had had a sudden onset of extreme sleepiness while driving late, pulled over, and passed out.  He was very concerned and ordered a maintenance of wakefulness sleep test that I have to pass to prove I can stay awake while treated. 

I have looked a little and found normal data, but not sure what pathological is.  I am sure that I can stay awake longer that the <8 min that was a fail on the mslt, but not sure about the whole 40 minute trial.
