Are you getting the rest you need? If not, it could be affecting your physical and mental health. Everyone has a bad night of sleep now and then. But for some people, lack of rest is caused by sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). Not only does SDB leave you tired and more prone to accidents, but it could also increase your risk for cardiovascular problems, such as high blood pressure, arrhythmia, artery disease, heart failure, and stroke.
Fortunately, SDB is treatable. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis. If you're having symptoms of SDB, such as loud snoring or excessive daytime sleepiness, you may need a sleep study.
Mercy Sleep Center at Mercy Hospital Perry is accredited by The Accreditation Commission for Health Care, Inc. and offers a fully equipped sleep laboratory to diagnose SDB.
Mercy's Sleep Center in Perryville is a two-bed facility staffed by qualified registered sleep technicians. Our medical director is a pulmonologist and board-certified physician of sleep medicine, specializing in diagnosing and treating sleep disorders. Our Sleep Center provides a comfortable and homelike atmosphere with individual, private bedrooms with Select Comfort beds. While you sleep, your sleeping patterns, breathing, heart rate, oxygen levels, limb movement, and more are measured.
In addition to our full in-lab service, Mercy now offers the possibility of home sleep testing (HST) in Perryville. While HST may be more convenient, it may not be the best option for everyone. The "Gold Standard" is still a formal in-lab sleep study versus a home sleep test. Talk to your doctor about what may be the best option for you. Be sure to tell your doctor about all the symptoms you’re experiencing.
If you’re diagnosed with SDB, treatment at Mercy Sleep Center can help you return to a good night’s sleep to live your healthiest life.
