HCM sleep labs offer a comfortable and soothing environment that is conducive to sleep. We understand it is sometimes difficult to sleep in a strange environment; therefore, we have designed our sleep labs to offer large rooms with regular queen sized beds and televisions to help our patients relax and enjoy their experience.
Sleep studies are painless. A polysomnogram, also called a sleep study, is a test used to diagnose sleep disorders. During your sleep study, a technician will place sensors using tape, paste or sticky patches to your scalp face and body. These sensors will allow the technician to monitor your brain waves, the oxygen level in your blood, heart rate and breathing, as well as eye and leg movements during the study. The technician will then bundle the thin wires to the back of the head for comfort and mobility. You will be able to walk or use the restroom while being connected to the wires.
You should visit your health care provider if any of these symptoms are disturbing your sleep cycle and affecting your life. You may be one of many who have an undiagnosed sleep disorder.
Visit with your primary care physician to discuss your symptoms. With a referral from your physician, you may schedule a sleep study by calling 830-997-1418.
