Are you tired throughout the day or snore all night?

Daytime sleepiness or excessive snoring can be signs or a more serious sleep disorder. Clark Regional

Sleep disorders that interfere with a good night’s rest are more than an annoyance—they can greatly impact your health. Our RPSGT-credentialed Sleep Lab technicians and board-certified sleep specialist, neurologist, and ear, nose and throat specialist help diagnose and treat:

• Insomnia

New Location, Same Great Care

The Clark Regional Medical Center Sleep Lab recently moved into the medical office building attached to the hospital. The brand-new lab features four suites, new beds and new equipment.

To diagnose sleep disorders, physicians often recommend a sleep study. This test is performed overnight in the Clark Regional Sleep Lab.

What is a Sleep Lab?

Sleep Lab's enable physicians to diagnose sleep disorders by administering sleep studies. Our state of the art sleep lab has four spacious private rooms to make you feel right at home.

The Sleep Lab is staffed by Board Registered Polysomnographers and Respiratory Therapist.
 

SLEEP STUDY APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHTS. TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT, CALL (859) 737-6564.

What Happens During a Sleep Study?

When you arrive at the Sleep Lab for your sleep study, a sleep technician will greet you at the door and show you to your private suite, equipped with a bed, television and Wi-Fi access. You can make yourself at home and adjust the temperature to your comfort level.

As you prepare for bed, you will complete a questionnaire about your sleep habits. The technician will then place painless monitors on your head, chest and legs. These electrodes monitor vital signs, including your oxygen level, heart and breathing rates, and whether or not there are disruptions in your sleep cycle. Technicians also monitor whether or not you snore or move your arms and legs in your sleep, all possible signs of a sleep disorder.

Once the study is complete, your physician will receive a report on your sleeping patterns that you can review together to form a treatment plan.
