Sleep Disorders Center
Our Accredited Sleep Disorders Center Offers Diagnostic Sleep Studies
Sleep is vital to good health – sleep is an active state important for renewing our mental and physical health each day! If you or a loved one are having sleep related issues, our staff at Newman Regional Health Sleep Disorders Center is here to help to ensure you have a good quality night of sleep!
Newman Regional Health Sleep Disorders Center is 2-bed sleep facility accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). We provide in-center (overnight or day) sleep testing (polysomnogram – PSG) diagnostic & titration studies. The center is fully-equipped with a home-like private bedroom to monitor patients during sleep. A caring, trained sleep technologist monitors the patient during the study after which a physician analyzes the results, patient history, and lab tests to make a diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan.
Home Sleep Apnea Testing (HSAT)
In addition to our in-center sleep testing, we also offer Home Sleep Apnea Testing (HSAT) for those patients who qualify. With an HSAT, you are sleeping in the comfort of your own home. Not everyone qualifies for a HSAT—the patient for whom an HSAT would be appropriate is a patient with a high pre-test probability of moderate to severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and who does not have other significant health issues which would be better evaluated through in-center testing. An HSAT is somewhat less reliable for diagnosing a mild disorder. Your health care provider will tell you if an HSAT is appropriate for you.
Our sleep specialists identify and treat sleep disorders.
One such common disorder, sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening breathing problem that occurs during sleep.
It is estimated there are approximately 22 million adults who suffer from sleep apnea, but even more shocking is that 89% are undiagnosed.
Our Sleep Specialist, Dr. Victor Salloum, MD, Pulmonary Disease Physician, and Board Certified Sleep Specialist, sees patients at Newman Regional Health Specialty Clinic.
Sleep Studies can be scheduled Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays (days may vary – we do like to accommodate special circumstances if possible), with flexible hours available for shift workers. Our sleep professionals are ready to help you get a good night’s rest!
