An estimated 70 million Americans have a sleep condition, reports the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Your body needs sleep to heal and restore itself. If you are constantly tossing and turning at night or waking up not feeling refreshed, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder.
At Lakewood Health System we’re here to help you enjoy peaceful, uninterrupted sleep. A good night’s sleep can help you concentrate, maintain a healthy mood and build a strong immune system. Untreated sleep disorders put you at risk for heart disease and other health issues.
What is a sleep study?
Sleep studies are a simple, painless process where a specially trained sleep technologist monitors your brainwaves, eye movement, breathing, blood oxygen levels, heart rate and muscle activity while you sleep comfortably in one of our private sleep study rooms.
