Getting a good night’s sleep helps your body and mind function at their best. Yet an estimated 70 million Americans struggle with sleep disorders ― and about 80% go undiagnosed. Having a sleep disorder can raise your risk for heart attack, stroke, obesity, depression and other health conditions.
If you’re tossing and turning at night, the experts at Mercy Sleep Center in Springfield, Missouri can find out what’s affecting your sleep. Our center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Common sleep conditions we help diagnose for patients in the Springfield area include:
Depending on your symptoms, your Mercy sleep medicine specialist in Springfield may recommend you have an overnight sleep study (or polysomnogram). Our hospital-based outpatient center provides a comfortable, hotel-like environment for sleep studies. We offer private rooms, premium Sleep Number beds and adjoining bathrooms with showers.
If you’re suspected of having sleep apnea, a pulse oximetry test may be performed. This test measures your blood oxygen levels using a plastic clip on your finger while you’re awake and asleep.
