Great Community. Great Hospital. A Great Night’s Sleep.
Do you constantly struggle with some aspect of your sleep? Are you tired or fatigued most days? If so, it may be time to consult your physician about a sleep study at Sparta Community Hospital. Excessive snoring and daytime sleepiness are the most obvious signs of the need for a sleep study. Sleep studies are non-invasive exams conducted overnight to observe what is happening to your body and brain while you sleep. They monitor the stages of your sleep and identify disruptions to sleep patterns such as sleep apnea, hyperpnoea (abnormally deep or rapid breathing) excessive snoring, insomnia, narcolepsy and heart rhythm problems, and why the disruptions occur.
Sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders. People with sleep apnea frequently stop breathing during their sleep. This means that the brain and the body may not be receiving enough oxygen.
Sleep apnea is considered a serious medical condition and can cause conditions such as high blood pressure, heart problems, type 2 diabetes, liver problems and more.
Each sleep lab at Sparta Community Hospital resembles a comfortable bedroom which aids in simulating your personal sleep accommodations and environment. An assessment of your sleep disorder will be made by skilled professionals to determine the treatment that is best for you.
Ask your physician if a sleep study is needed to return you to a great night’s sleep. Call 618-443-2177 for more information.
