Cass Regional Medical Center's Sleep Lab is used to evaluate, diagnose and treat sleep disorders. One of the most common sleep disorders is sleep apnea. This is a medical disorder, that causes a person to stop breathing for periods of time during the night and can be linked to other serious health problems such as high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, stroke, and/or depression/anxiety. Other sleep disorders can include restless leg syndrome (RLS), periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD) and narcolepsy, all of which can affect your health. The good news is that most sleep disorders can be successfully treated or controlled once properly diagnosed.
The Sleep Lab is accredited by The Joint Commission and is a Sleep Care Center Member of the National Sleep Foundation. We provide diagnostic sleep studies and educate patients on sleep disorders, healthy sleep and the dangers of drowsy driving.
If you or a loved one has trouble sleeping, please talk to your doctor.
The Epworth Sleepiness Scale is a series of questions that was created to measure one's daytime sleepiness. This scale can also help to diagnose sleep disorders. Take this test to measure your symptoms: Epworth Sleepiness Scale
