Sleep Disorder Treatment & Sleep Lab
Physicians typically refer patients to the Sleep Lab when they display signs & symptoms of possible sleep disorder. Signs and Symptoms of sleep disorders may include; morning headaches, daytime fatigue, daytime sleepiness, snoring, waking up gasping for air, irritability, anxiety, depression, loss of concentration, falling asleep while driving, increased work place accidents, high blood pressure. Other circumstances in our daily lives may cause these signs and systems.
Sleep Hygiene or other medical conditions should be discussed with your Physician to determine which path of treatment is right for you. Once your physician reviews your signs and symptoms along with a physical exam, he/she may determine a sleep study is right for you. During the sleep study the Sleep Technician will monitor brain waves, eye movements, muscle activity, multiple breathing variables, heart rate/rhythm, position, limb movements, and blood oxygen levels during sleep, using specialized recording equipment.
Sleep Problems and Disorders have been linked to a multitude of short and long-term health problems. Studies have shown that some patients with chronic sleep disorders may be at higher risk for Blood pressure and Heart Disease.
If you feel that you or someone you know may be suffering from a sleep disorder, there is help. Contact your Family Physician to discuss your symptoms or click on Ask The Expert. Memorial Hospital has been providing Sleep Diagnostic testing since 1998. Memorials Registered Polysmnographist (Sleep Technician) is a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Memorial Hospital is also a Community Sleep Awareness Partner of the National Sleep Foundation.
