Millions of Americans are affected by sleep disorders, like sleep apnea, insomnia and chronic snoring that prevent them from getting a good night's sleep. Samaritan Memorial Hospital can help diagnose these conditions in adults and restore restful sleep. Sleep disorders are diagnosed through sleep studies conducted in the sleep lab, usually overnight. During the study, patients are monitored continually by a Polysomnography technician who will use microphones, infrared cameras, and electrodes to record all aspects of sleep. Talk to your doctor if you suspect you are suffering from a sleep disorder. A physician referral is required before a sleep study is conducted.
