The Sleep Disorder Center is a two-suite lab, staffed by experienced polysomnography technicians and respiratory care practitioners. A polysomnography, or sleep study, is a painless test to measure sleep cycles and stages by recording brain waves (EEG), muscle and eye movement, breathing rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation and hearth rhythm. These non-invasive tests can provide diagnostic information for the patient's doctor to use in the development of a treatment plan.
Contact the Sleep Disorder Center for a copy of The Epworth Sleepiness Scale which is used to evaluate a patient's daytime sleepiness. Patients can then return the Epworth Sleepiness Scale to the Sleep Lab by fax to (970) 479-7188 or by email to email@example.com. Please contact your health care provider if you would like to find out if a sleep study might be right for you.
Always talk to your primary health care physician about your health concerns. Your physician can refer you to the Sleep Disorder Center.
