Diagnosing Sleep Disorders
Hospital Sleep Lab and New “at home” Testing
Most people are afraid they will have to sleep overnight in a sleep lab to be diagnosed with a sleep disorder. This may keep many patients from seeking help. Today, we have a growing list of options for evaluating your sleep complaints in the sleep lab and in the comfort of your own home.
If you do require an in-hospital sleep study, our center’s state-of-the-art sleep laboratory offers a comfortable, quiet, home-like setting. Each room has a bathroom, TV and reading chair.
We use the latest computerized monitoring equipment for testing and nocturnal studies to aid referring physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea and our testing often includes daytime sleep latency testing. The center also performs treatment effectiveness studies with nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and arranges equipment access for outpatients. A consultation office compliments the laboratory.
