Diagnosing Sleep Disorders
In order to accurately diagnosis a sleep disorder, some patients may benefit from a polysomnogram which records brain function and physical activity (breathing, snoring, heart rate, oxygen levels, and movements) during sleep. All data collected during the sleep study is analyzed and interpreted by board-certified sleep specialists.
The Lakeland Sleep Disorders and Treatment Center, with locations in the Niles and St. Joseph hospitals, offer soundproof, private, home-like bedrooms.
Some patients may also benefit from a home sleep test which measures your breathing and blood oxygen levels and provides the necessary information to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea.
