A Few Words
Sleep is an essential part of our health and well-being. If you experience excessive fatigue, difficulty sleeping at night and/or loud snoring when you sleep, please consult with your doctor. A sleep test may be the next step for you.
The majority of sleep problems and disorders can be diagnosed and are treatable. Sleep disorders may affect any age group and can lead to serious health problems. Our Sleep Clinic provides in-house and at-home sleep studies for referred patients 18 and over. Our in-house studies are conducted in private, comfortable rooms. A qualified sleep specialist will observe your sleep patterns, brain waves (EEG), heart rate, rapid eye movements (REM), and more using advanced monitoring devices to better understand how your body functions as it sleeps. The results will show the proper diagnosis so the next steps can be taken.
Eligible patients can participate in an at-home sleep study. The extra flexibility and comfort of being in your own home may be the right fit for you.
Scheduling for in-house sleep studies includes an arrival time of 8:00 p.m., with the study beginning at 10:30 p.m. This schedule allows for an out-the door time of 6:00 a.m.
Our Sleep Lab allows accommodations for different schedules. With an individualized care approach, we can design a proper time that works best for you.
If you have any other specific sleeping needs, such as a support animal, please discuss this with your study technician so we can best accommodate you.
For more information or to schedule your sleep study, please call 937-386-3451.
Our highly-trained Sleep Pulmonary Medicine team provides three procedures to evaluate patient symptoms:
This test is typically performed between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. It is used to rule out sleep apnea, insomnia, night terrors, nocturnal desaturation, periodic leg movements (PLM) and other conditions of disruptive sleep.
Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT)
This test is performed during the daytime hours between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. It is used to rule out narcolepsy, excessive daytime sleepiness and other conditions of excessive sleepiness.
This procedure always precedes an overnight PSG and consists of a series of naps that occur at regular intervals throughout the day. The patient is monitored throughout the process while EEG activity is recorded. This test determines the severity of the patient's excessive sleepiness.
Nasal CPAP/BIPAP Therapy (CPAP)
This test is performed after the initial PSG test. The test indicates if the patient has moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea. During this study, the patient is placed on a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. A small mask is placed over the patient's nose/mouth with the machine allowing air to pass through the mask. This permits the patient to breathe without experiencing apneic episodes, thus allowing a more natural sleep pattern.
The results of these procedures are interpreted by a Board Certified Sleep Physician. The patient’s physicians will receive a final written report with the Board Certified Sleep Physician’s interpretation along with any recommendations on CPAP/BIPAP settings, mask size, oxygen supplementation, etc.
