More than 70 million Americans suffer from some type of sleep disorder with potentially significant consequences at home and at work. An untreated sleep disorder can reduce daytime productivity, increase risk of accidents and increase the risk for illness and even early death.
The Columbus Regional Health Sleep Lab at Midtown Medical Center West is dedicated to the detection, identification and treatment of sleep disorders including:
- Sleep apnea
- Heavy snoring
- Restless leg syndrome
- Idiopathic hypersomnia
- Kleine-Levin Syndrome
- Menstrual-related hypersomnia
- Idiopathic recurrent stupor
- Circadian rhythm disturbances
- Bruxism (teeth-grinding)
The Sleep Lab team includes American Board of Sleep Medicine-certified sleep specialists. The Sleep Lab offers a comfortable, secure, hotel-like outpatient facility for all testing and interventions.
The first step in the evaluation process normally is conducted by a primary care physician who performs a thorough medical history, including any history of sleep issues, medical records, current vital statistics and all medications. Depending upon the results, the doctor may order a sleep assessment at the Sleep Lab. Sleep assessments are provided through physician referrals only.
If a referral is made, the Sleep Lab staff arranges a convenient appointment for an overnight visit to the Lab. Details of the process and evaluations are shared with the patient at the time of the appointment, and any questions are answered to ensure the greatest level of comfort possible.
