About the Sleep Disorders Center
What is a Sleep Disorders Center?
Our Sleep Disorders Center locations in Muskegon and Shelby are specialized medical facilities. Technologists who staff our locations are experienced in respiratory therapy, sleep and EEG technologies. Physicians, experienced in diagnosing and treating sleep-related disorders, interpret the sleep studies.
Both locations offer a comfortable, hotel-like atmosphere with the personal attention and expertise required for accurate sleep diagnostics. Each patient has a private room that is monitored from a control room.
What to Expect
Before a patient spends the night in one of our two Sleep Labs, he or she will first see a specialist. The physician will complete a comprehensive medical history, which helps rule out physical illness or other factors as the cause of the patient's sleeping problem. If the physician decides a sleep study is in order, the patient will come to one of the labs to spend the night.
The testing is called Nocturnal Polysomnography (NPSG). Polysomnography means to monitor while sleeping and is a painless procedure. Small electrodes are placed on the skin with tape or gauze, attached by wire to a monitoring device, and used to document sleep patterns, breathing and heart rates, leg and body movements, oxygen levels, and other important signals.
You will be asked to fill out a questionnaire about your previous night and day. Complete explanations are given for all of the testing procedures. Once you are in your nightclothes, the technologist will apply the electrodes and other monitoring devices. You will then get into the bed and fall asleep naturally. A minimum of six hours of monitoring is needed for a complete sleep evaluation.
Sleeping in our Sleep Labs is not as difficult as it sounds. Our staff is professional, helpful, and friendly. Our Sleep Labs are quiet, comfortable and clean. You will be assigned your own room and bathroom with clean linen and towels. You will be able to change positions and get up to use the bathroom during the night, if necessary. The technologist will be able to see and hear you, as you are continuously monitored throughout the night.
There are separate charges for the consultation with the sleep specialist, the sleep study and the sleep study interpretation. Most insurance plans cover all or part of these charges. We encourage you to check with your health insurance company to be sure. Please contact us for a list of charges and codes that your insurance company may require.
