The Columbus Community Hospital Sleep Lab offers complete polysomnographic sleep testing for the purpose of diagnosing obstructive/central sleep apnea.
While there are many symptoms of sleep apnea, some of the most common include daytime fatigue and sleepiness, snoring, frequent headaches and high blood pressure. More than 25% of Americans suffer from sleep disorders including breathing-related sleep disorders, insomnia and sleep-related movement disorders. Left undiagnosed, sleep disorders can have serious health effects on heart rhythms, hormone balance, blood pressure, blood sugar, memory and concentration.
Our two-bed sleep lab monitors various aspects of heart, brain and lung function during sleep, such as heart rate, blood pressure, breathing patterns, length of apneic periods, muscular effort and brain waves. Our sleep technologists are Registered Polysomnography Technologists accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and are under the medical direction of a Board Certified Sleep Physician.
We recommend a visit to your physician for a referral to our sleep lab if you suffer from snoring, sleep disruptions, or excessive daytime sleepiness. Physician referral is required to schedule an appointment.
