Sleep Tests at the Sleep Diagnostic Center
If you experience any of the symptoms of a sleep disorder, your physician or one of our neurologists can refer you to Columbus Regional Hospital for a sleep disorder study. We offer comprehensive sleep testing and sleep disorder treatments that can help you return to a healthy, restful sleep. Among the most common sleep tests are:
Polysomnography (PSG) - A sleep test that monitors your breathing.
Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) - An all day sleep test to evaluate how quickly you fall asleep during four or five 20-minute naps.
Maintenance Wakefulness Test (MWT) - This sleep test is completed during your normal wakeful time. It measures how quickly you fall asleep.
Sleep Disorder Treatments at The Sleep Diagnostic Center
After a sleep study, one of our neurologists specially trained in evaluating and treating sleep disorders will review your test results. Their recommendations are then forwarded to your physician to determine the best sleep disorder treatment for you. Treatment may include weight loss, lifestyle modification and sleeping on your side or stomach. Other sleep disorder treatments might include:
- CPAP- A nighttime breathing device that maintains Continuous Positive Airway Pressure
- Oral Appliances - Devices worn to open the airway
- Surgery to eliminate physical abnormalities
- Oxygen Therapy
- Education on Sleep Hygiene
- Behavioral Modification
- AWAKE Support Group
The Sleep Diagnostic Center also offers a monthly sleep disorder support group and education session for people with sleep disorders and their families.
