The Unity Health Sleep Lab is accredited by the AASU (American Academy of Sleep Medicine) and features hotel-style rooms. An estimated 10% to 30% of adults snore. For most people, this has no serious medical consequences. However, for an estimated 5 in 100 people, loud snoring is the first indication of a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder. Our sleep study program educates patients about sleep disorders and helps many people in the community receive a better night's rest.
Besides snoring, some of the warning signs of sleep disorders include witnessed pauses in breathing, frequent awakenings, excessive leg kicking during sleep, insomnia, night sweats, daytime sleepiness, difficulty concentrating and morning headaches. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, talk to your physician about a sleep study. During the study, a credentialed sleep technician monitors your brain waves, heartbeat, leg movements, muscle activity and breathing to determine a diagnosis and treatment plan.
