Getting good rest is essential to having a normal, productive life. Sleeping disorders can affect you at any age and can seriously interfere with your body’s necessary restorative cycles. Martin General Hospital’s sleep study program monitors patients’ sleeping patterns to find out why you may be having problems. Your doctor may suggest this treatment if you experience long-term sleeplessness or other recurring problems.
Sleep studies are performed during your normal sleeping hours. Martin General Hospital offers private, comfortable rooms that are quiet and free of distractions.
What to expect:
Before you go to sleep, electrodes are placed on different parts of your body so that we can monitor your brain, nerve and muscle activity. We also watch your breathing patterns and eye movements.
All of the information gathered from the study is evaluated by a physician who specializes in sleep disorders. They will diagnose your condition and determine a treatment plan.
Most insurance plans will cover the costs but we recommend that you call your provider to be sure of your coverage.
