Sleep Study Program at Memorial
Sleep disorders affect one out of every four individuals. Left untreated, serious sleep disorders such as sleep apnea may have life-threatening consequences due to the toll taken on the cardiovascular and neurological systems.
Sleep Study Program locations at Memorial Regional Hospital South and Memorial Hospital Pembroke are available to assist those that may be suffering from an undiagnosed sleep disorder.
During a sleep consultation, the highly trained sleep specialists obtain a general medical and sleep history and conduct a physical examination. It will then be determined if additional tests are needed through an overnight sleep study. Sleep studies are conducted in private sleep rooms that afford patients the comforts of home. Set-up involves the placement of various electrodes on the surface of the patient's scalp, face, chest and lower leg to monitor brain waves, eye movements, respiration, heart rate and muscle activity. There are no injections, drugs or X-rays associated with this procedure and no pain associated with the placing or wearing of electrodes. A second night at the Sleep Study Program may be required for patients diagnosed with sleep apnea.
