“Why Am I So Tired”

Imagine someone standing next to your bed all night, shaking you awake every couple of minutes. How rested would you feel the next morning? A sleeping disorder can affect you in a similar way, causing interruption in the deep level of sleep known as rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, essential to the body’s rejuvenation process. If you find yourself dozing off through the day, unable to concentrate, or feeling irritable, your quality hours of sleep are probably being interrupted.

Community Hospital of Staunton in Staunton, along with Lion Sleep Lab of Glen Carbon, will work in conjunction with your doctor to diagnose your sleeping disorder and help you get a good night’s sleep.

18 Million Americans Suffer From Obstructive Sleep Apnea!

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a life-threatening and life altering condition that causes a person to stop breathing repeatedly during sleep. As a result, the body doesn’t get enough oxygen.

“How can Lion's Sleep Lab help me?”

Community Hospital of Staunton’s sleep lab program has been designed to make patients comfortable while staff collects the necessary data to diagnose and treat your sleep disorder. After arriving at CHS, you may change into your night clothes. A technician will attach electrodes to measure data such as your breathing, eye movement, and brain waves.

After collecting data for the entire night, a technologist reviews the entire study and notes the interruptions and abnormalities of your sleep. These test results are provided to one of our qualified physicians who properly diagnoses a possible sleep disorder and suggests the best therapy for you!

Tell your doctor about any difficulties in sleep observed by yourself or a family member. You owe it to yourself to take the first step toward restful sleep.

Studies show that treating your sleep disorder may even play a role in preventing car accidents, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, and other vascular disease.
