The St.Joseph Sleep Disorders Center:
Our staff at the Sleep Disorders Center are sleep experienced:
Are you spending nights restless and awake? Feeling drowsy, stressed or a little more irritable than usual? Though life may bring periods of less-than-perfect rest to all of us, a chronic sleep problem is not normal.
More than 100 types of sleeping and waking disorders exist and more than 40 million Americans suffer each year from some form of these disorders. Sleep disorders can affect happiness, productivity and personal safety. They can also be associated with high blood pressure and heart disease. Symptoms of a sleep disorder can include:
If your primary care physician or specialist suspects you might have a sleep disorder, they can order a test at the St.Joseph Sleep Disorders Center. When a test is ordered you will be evaluated for a full range of disorders by a qualified clinician using state-of-the-art equipment. The center offers:
If you think you may have a sleeping disorder, please take the following Epworth Sleepiness Questionnaire. The scale is intended to help you evaluate the extent of your sleepiness.
Please use this as a tool to assist your physician in diagnosing and treating your symptoms. The following questionnaire is not intended to substitute for a medical assessment by your physician, but is intended to be taken with you when you visit your physician.
Use the following scale to assign the most appropriate number for each situation listed:0 = Would Never Doze1 = Slight Chance of Dozing2 = Moderate Chance of Dozing3 = High Chance of DozingSituation and Chance of Dozing
Though your test requires a one-day or one-night stay, it will not be like a typical stay in the hospital. Your study will be done according to your normal sleep habits, whether it is day or night. Our sleep rooms are comfortable and inviting and offer 5-star service with all the amenities of a hotel. These amenities include toiletries, a private bathroom, hairdryer, fan, microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot, television with remote and a free continental breakfast. In addition, every room is equipped with a Select Comfort® bed, so you can choose your own comfort level for a good night’s rest.
In order to make the stay more like home, we are pleased to offer the use of the Nintendo Wii for our pediatric patients.
