So you can rest easy
Do you have trouble sleeping through the night? Do you often feel tired during the day? Does your partner complain about your snoring or mention that you seem to stop breathing while you sleep?
These may be more than just normal inconveniences. They could be signs of a serious medical concern like sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea can lead to cognitive problems like daytime fatigue and vision problems, as well as behavioral problems such as decreased motivation and depression.
Because sleep is so important to overall health, we established the Clark Memorial Sleep Center — a fully accredited, four-bed facility specially equipped to conduct sleep studies.
During these sleep studies, patients are monitored to record and measure oxygen levels, heart rate, limb movement and sleep cycles. Our sleep specialists then use this data to diagnose sleep disorders and prescribe treatments.
If you’re having trouble getting a good night’s sleep and you’d like to schedule an appointment with a health professional at the Sleep Center, call (812) 283-2299.
