Forty million Americans are chronically ill with various sleep disorders, and an additional 20 to 30 million experience intermittent sleep problems. Among the most prominent and costly disorders are insomnia and obstructive sleep apnea. With health consequences such as congestive heart failure, increased risk of heart attack, higher accident rates, reduced productivity, lowered cognitive performance and decreased quality of life, these disorders can have a major impact on those who suffer from them. Fortunately, help is available.
Carlinville Area Hospital has conducted hundreds of sleep studies for those suffering from various sleep disorders, including snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, restless leg syndrome and narcolepsy. Now, the Hospital is pleased to offer expanded services and a technologically advanced Sleep Center located in the new Medical Office Building.
The new Sleep Center is equipped with the most advanced software and hardware technology available. In addition to in-house sleep studies, the Hospital also provides at-home sleep studies for your convenience.
Two tastefully appointed private rooms help to ensure patients’ comfort during the patients stay. As they sleep, staff members in an adjoining room monitor oxygen in the blood, restlessness, body position, snoring, heart and brain activity and other pertinent factors.
