People spend roughly one-third of their lives asleep, so quality of sleep directly affects quality of life. Studies show that one out of three Americans has a sleep disorder that contributes to potentially life-threatening mistakes and accidents on or off the job. The good news is that once detected, most sleep disorders can be corrected.
If you have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or remaining awake, the Sleep Lab can help.
The types of problems treated through this program include:
- Sleep Apnea
- Oxygenation Problems
As the technology, research, and field of Sleep Medicine grows - so have we. We continue to provide state of the art, cutting edge equipment through which we can collect information while the patient sleeps quietly and comfortably and at the same time, allow the physician immediate access to information. We continually update the education of our staff of certified respiratory therapists, Registered Polysomnographic Technologists, and Board eligible Polysomnographic Technicians.
Our lab has 8 beds that accommodate patients 5 nights a week. These private rooms have a quiet and comfortable home like atmosphere for patients to spend the night. Each room has amenities that make a patient's stay as pleasant as possible, such as:
- Premium mattresses designed for different body types and styles of sleep.
- Private bathrooms and showers.
- Recliners for patients who can't sleep laying down.
- Flat panel televisions.
- Mission style wood furniture
Our rooms have queen size beds, beds for smaller frames and children, and special mattresses designed for support and comfort. The private bathrooms all have a roomy fully mirrored vanity area and an area for hair dryers, etc., for our patients who leave for work from the facility. There is also an area for patient caregivers to spend the night (when necessary). A light snack and/or coffee in the morning is available at the patient's request.
Working closely with Lourdes Health Support enables patients to quickly acquire any item needed or prescribed by the physician. This provides patients with continuity of care within the Lourdes system (for those who choose it). Even after patients have gone home and had their prescriptions filled, the Sleep Disorders Lab helps patients fine tune any and all compliance issues related to any therapy prescribed by the physician.
