The Sleep Center at Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital in Greenville, KY, has two home research labs and can accommodate night studies for adults and pediatric patients to help diagnose sleep disorders.
Our experienced registered polysomnographic technologists, Kimberly Gregory and Andrea Ziegler, monitor and assess the patient's sleep patterns for the referring physicians, Dr. Chavda and Dr. Tumen.
Benefits Of A Sleep Study
According to the National Institutes of Health, 50 to 70 million individuals are affected by chronic sleep disorders such as apnea, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome among others. These disorders can be linked to heart disease, hypertension, stroke, diabetes and other chronic diseases.
The sooner your provider can diagnose the sleep condition you have, the sooner you can seek treatment and get a good night's rest, which can lead to improved emotional and physical health.
How To Get A Sleep Study
