Need a Better Night's Sleep? Look No Further.
Sleep disorders are a serious health concern, as the consequences of related complications go far beyond missing sleep. St. Francis provides sleep studies to diagnose and treat disorders such as sleep apnea, a disorder experienced when breathing stops or gets very shallow while you are sleeping.
St. Francis Hospital's increased capabilities are improving treatment of sleep disorders. The newly remodeled sleep lab offers two rooms with private bathrooms and showers in addition to new digital equipment and CPAP a medical device that helps to treat sleep apnea by providing airway pressure.
The sleep lab provides additional exams including the multiple sleep latency test (MSLT), which is utilized for narcolepsy, and the maintenance of wakefulness test (MWT), which measures the ability to remain awake during events tending to cause drowsiness or sleep.
St. Francis can perform sleep studies on patients as young as age six, and is the only local hospital with this pediatric capability. It also offers scheduling six days a week, whereas many hospitals cannot conduct studies on weekends.
To schedule your appointment, please call us at (217) 324-8518. All patients must have a written referral from their physician.
