The Sleep Evaluation Center at Ohio Valley Hospital is there for people suffering from chronic sleep disorders. More than 40 million Americans suffer from some type of sleep issue, and don’t recognize the symptoms.
The Sleep Evaluation Center at Ohio Valley Hospital is staffed by registered polysomnographic (or sleep) technologists and respiratory therapists who are trained in Polysomnographic technology. They are fully up-to-date in all training required of sleep medicine.
Sleep disorders, including insomnia, apnea, and restless leg syndrome, can wreak havoc on a person’s well-being. Sleep deprivation can cause irritability, depression, forgetfulness, fatigue, headaches, and often contribute to hypertension. It can also stress relationships, reduce productivity, and lead to accidents. Specially-trained sleep experts at our Sleep Evaluation Center can accurately diagnose your sleep problems, and put them to rest.
Your Primary Care doctor, or PCP, is able to refer you to our Sleep Evaluation Center, or sleep lab, for testing.
