Sleep Center Springfield MO

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 Disorders

Common sleep conditions we help diagnose for patients in the Springfield area include:

  • Insomnia – Difficulty falling and staying asleep, which is the most common of all sleep disorders
  • Sleep apnea – Temporarily not breathing during sleep, which can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and depression
  • Restless leg syndrome – Leg discomfort that worsens at night and may include burning, itching or the urge to move the legs
  • Narcolepsy – Disruption of the sleep-wake cycle that causes extreme tiredness, sudden attacks of sleep and muscle weakness at any time of day
  • Parasomnia – Abnormal behaviors when falling asleep, sleeping or waking up, such as sleepwalking, talking, eating, nightmares, bedwetting, hallucinations, paralysis and more

Sleep Disorder Testing

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.

Inspire™ Sleep Apnea Therapy 

If you have moderate-to-severe obstructive sleep apnea and struggle with using a CPAP machine, ask your Mercy sleep medicine specialist about Inspire therapy. It’s an implanted device that monitors breathing and stimulates airway muscles.
