Rediscover your sleep

Sleep center

CHI Memorial Regional Sleep Center is fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment of sleep disorders.  Board certified sleep specialists can help get to the bottom of your problem through a sleep study, or testing used to diagnose sleep disorders. 

Forty percent of adults sleep less than 7 hours each weeknight, and 74 percent of adults experience sleeping problems a few nights a week. Without enough quality sleep, people are more likely to experience moodiness, confusion, difficulty concentrating and memory problems. If feeling worn out even after a full night’s sleep is starting to get you down, it might be time to seek help from the sleep experts. 

Sleep disorders


Chronic sleep disruption has been linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, stroke, diabetes, obesity, accidents and debilitating daytime sleepiness. A sleep disorder is a disruptive pattern of sleep that prevents restful, regenerative sleep. CHI Memorial evaluates and treats all sleep disturbances, including the following symptoms and conditions:

  • Snoring
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Sleep apnea
  • Insomnia
  • Unusual movement during sleep

Sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a serious, life-altering, and potentially life-threatening condition that is easily identified and effectively treated. Sleep apnea affects one in every 15 Americans. What’s more,10 million people don’t know they have the condition, and it can affect people of all ages and body-types. Common signs of sleep apnea include excessive daytime sleepiness, extremely loud snoring, episodes of breathing cessation, insomnia and abrupt awakenings. Men are three times more likely to be affected by sleep apnea than women. More than just interfering with your productivity (and how good you feel during the day), sleep apnea also poses other potential risks – like stroke, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.

Sleep studies

A typical sleep study involves more than 800 pages of data of various kinds. The information is interpreted by a sleep specialist with special knowledge of sleep and its disorders. At your follow-up visit, generally one or two weeks after the sleep study, the sleep specialist will review and interpret your record to you to help you understand your specific sleep patterns. The results will also be shared with your physician. If evidence of a sleep disorder is found, treatment recommendations will be made, but additional procedures are occasionally needed to establish a diagnosis or evaluate a treatment.

Treatment


Sleep disorders may be treated with medications, weight loss and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. Surgery may be recommended. Sleep studies and most treatments are covered by Medicare and most commercial insurance plans.

In addition to sleep apnea, treatment for others sleep disorders like insomnia, narcolepsy (uncontrollable drowsiness and sleeping), and restless leg syndrome are also available.
