sleep-lab-compilation_ajp.jpgA good night’s sleep doesn’t have to be a dream.

Always tired? Do you wake up feeling like you have not slept at all? You are not alone.

One out of three people do not experience quality sleep during the night and this might be a sign of an undiagnosed underlying sleep disorder.

Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep and the Brookings Health System can help.

How does a sleep study work?

If you think you might have a sleep disorder, ask your physician about a referral to Brookings Health System’s Sleep Diagnostics facility. Following consultation with a physician, patients are evaluated at the Sleep Diagnostics facility. Once you arrive at the facility, our professional and qualified staff will explain all the procedures to you.

Trained experts will monitor brain waves, breathing patterns, eye movement, blood oxygen levels, and other parameters needed to study sleep. In the days following the sleep study, a specialist interprets the test results and routes the findings to the patient’s physician. The tests are interpreted by a specialist who then routes the findings to the patient’s referring physician.
