Sleep studies are available through the Respiratory Care department. The testing is painless, risk-free, and usually takes one full night. A sleep technician watches the monitors all night to observe you and the equipment. After receiving the results of your study, your doctor will discuss them with you. The study tells your doctor many things about your sleep, including whether your air passage is blocked and whether you have sleep apnea. The sleep study can help your doctor decide which treatment options to recommend for your breathing problems.
To schedule an appointment call the Respiratory Care Department at 712-464-3171 or 800-262-2614 or call your family physician, he or she will make an appointment for you.
