Help for Sleep Disorders
Little Company of Mary's Sleep Disorders Center is unique in that it is located on-site at the Hospital. Our goal is to help people who suffer from apnea, insomnia, and other sleep disorders obtain refreshing sleep. Sleep studies are performed in the comfort of a bedroom environment. All bedrooms are private with a personal bathroom and shower. Handicapped accessibility is offered as well.
The Sleep Disorders Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Sleep Study test appointments are available seven nights per week.
Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
We perform testing on children and adults. Parents stay with their child during a sleep study and are given a bedroom to sleep.
Little Company of Mary's Sleep Disorders Center is located on the fourth floor of the tower building.
Prior to a sleep study, each patient is scheduled for a 45 minute evaluation by one of our physicians, Dr. Richard Kern, board certified in sleep medicine or Dr. Evan McLeod, both of whom are trained to evaluate and treat sleep disorders.
If a sleep study is recommended, you will arrive about 1 hour prior to your normal bedtime. After changing into your own pajamas and following your bedtime routine, the sleep tech places a number of monitoring devices on the head, face and chest to monitor heart, breathing and brain patterns. Throughout the night, the sleep tech is only steps away and can answer any questions or needs throughout the night. In the morning, the sleep tech wakes you up and removes the monitoring devices. You may shower, change clothes, have breakfast in the cafeteria and go to work or home after your sleep study.
Results of the sleep study are interpreted and sent to your physician within one week so treatment can be started quickly.
Sleep evaluations and studies are covered by most insurance. Accessible scheduling and prompt review of reports results in speedy diagnosis and treatment of the problem.
