A blessing and open house was held on February 4th to officially open St. Anthony Hospital sleep disorders lab. The sleep lab provides outpatient diagnostic evaluations and treatment therapies for those suffering from problems associated with disrupted nighttime sleep and excessive daytime tiredness. If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from the effects of poor sleep, St. Anthony sleep disorders lab offers a solution.
An evaluation at the sleep lab involves an overnight stay in a comfortable, "hotel style" single room with private bathroom and TV. Throughout the night, trained and registered professionals monitor and record brain waves, breathing, muscle activity, heart rhythms and blood oxygen levels. The data is evaluated and reviewed by a board-certified specialist in sleep medicine. The report sent to your physician includes detailed diagnosis, ratings of severity and recommendations for treatment.
If you think you have a sleeping problem talk to your doctor or contact the sleep lab directly for a referral form. For more information you may contact the sleep lab at 541.276.5121, ext. 8284.
