Sleep Disorder Centert
Newman Regional Health
Our Accredited Sleep Disorders Center Offers Diagnostic Sleep Studies
Sleep is vital for whole body health, just like breathing or eating. Untreated sleep disorders can contribute to health problems, some of which may be life threatening. At Newman Regional Health, our Sleep Disorders Center in Emporia, Kansas is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed by experienced sleep specialists for the prompt diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders.
Accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, our Sleep Disorders 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 all-night sleep study (polysomnogram). A physician analyzes the results, patient history, and lab tests to make a diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan.
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.
Symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Loud irregular snoring
- Gasps for breath during sleep
- Sudden body movements
- Excessive sweating
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Morning headaches
- High blood pressure
- Personality changes
Talk to your provider if you suspect that you or a loved one has sleep apnea or a sleep disorder.
