Insufficient sleep has been linked to a number of chronic diseases and conditions, including obesity, depression, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. If you find it hard to get the rest you need,
our team of specialists can assess your sleeping patterns and develop
a treatment plan that is right for you.
How you will be assessed
You will meet with one of our sleep
specialists to evaluate your symptoms and sleeping habits. Once your
sleep patterns are identified, a preliminary diagnosis will be made
and a course of treatment will be recommended.
best way to gather the information needed for a diagnosis is through
a sleep study. This is done overnight in a private room at our sleep
lab located in our hospital. We will identify your sleep patterns by
monitoring your heart, brain and breathing patterns. Once our sleep
study is completed and enough information is gathered, we will
recommend the most appropriate treatment to address your needs.
To prepare for your sleep study, ensure
your skin and hair are clean when you arrive and avoid the use of
lotions and hair products. Washcloths and towels are available at the
center to remove any remaining makeup or lotion before the study
