Consistently getting a good night’s sleep is essential for your mind and body to function well throughout the day. Our Sleep Care Center helps diagnose and treat a variety of sleep disorders including sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia and restless leg syndrome. At Mercer Health’s Sleep Care Center, our goal is to provide convenient, quality diagnostic sleep services so you can be your best!
A sleep study or polysomnogram is a medical test performed in a private, climate-controlled suite while the patient sleeps. Sleep studies are non-invasive tests that are completed on an outpatient basis at night. Our sleep technologist will apply sensors to monitor and record your heart beat, brain activity, muscle movement, breathing efforts and oxygen levels. The study will be analyzed by a board-certified sleep physician who will determine the correct treatment. Certain disorders require a second sleep study to evaluate the level of treatment.
Sleep Care welcomes physician and patient referrals. The patient can call Sleep Care to set up an appointment with a board-certified sleep physician, for an initial evaluation or may be referred directly by another physician. For more information or to schedule an appointment with our sleep physician, please contact us at 419-678-ZZZZ (9999).
Snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, irritability and/or gasping upon waking are all signs of a sleep disorder. There are other factors that can also contribute to sleep disorders and concerns.Take Our Sleep Quiz
