Don’t give up on your dreams.
Healthful sleep is recognized as one of the body’s most important functions to maintain a high level of well-being and good quality of life.
White Rock Medical Center’s Sleep Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. This accreditation means we provide quality care for you that meets the highest standards.
Take the sleep quiz
Is getting a good night’s sleep and feeling rested the next morning just a dream? Do you have trouble falling asleep? Or do you may awaken several times during the night? Interrupted sleep can be detrimental to your overall well-being.
- Do you snore loudly?
- Do you often feel tired, fatigued or sleepy during the daytime?
- Has anyone observed you stop breathing during sleep?
- Do you have high blood pressure?
If you answered YES to TWO OR MORE of these questions, you may be at high risk for obstructive sleep apnea.
Reserve a sleep room
If you have any of the symptoms described in the quiz, talk to your primary care doctor. Your doctor can order a sleep evaluation that will pinpoint your sleep-related medical needs. Most insurance plans cover sleep studies.
It’s easy to schedule a sleep study. Talk to your doctor or call 214-324-6220 to find out how to reserve a sleep room.
What happens during a sleep study
Each patient is evaluated in a comfortable, private setting during an overnight stay. For your comfort, you will sleep in a room that is similar a home bedroom, rather than a hospital room. We also have home sleep study units available for your comfort and convenience.
Polysomnography (PSG) monitors will record brain waves and body activity, specifically leg movements, during sleep to identify specific patterns and physical reactions during sleep cycles.
Brain activity (EEG), eye movement, heart rate, pulse, blood oxygen levels, snoring, breathing and airflow will be monitored electronically throughout the evaluation. Body position will also be observed.
Data gathered from these monitors is scored and included in the report from the sleep specialist.
The study is reviewed and a report is delivered to your physician.
