Holston Valley Sleep Evaluation Center
Do you struggle to get the rest you need?
You aren’t alone.
More than 70 million people in the U.S. are affected by sleep problems and disorders.
That’s why the sleep evaluation center at Holston Valley Medical Center can diagnose and treat more than 85 recognized sleep disorders, including:
- Sleep apnea
- Restless legs syndrome
Many sleep disorders go unrecognized for years, leading to a poor quality of life – even accidents.
Sleep disorders can also contribute to other diseases and conditions such as strokes, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
Fortunately, most sleep disorders can be managed once they’ve been correctly diagnosed.
Do you have a sleep disorder?
Sleep disorders can happen in men, women and children of all ages.
Most people don’t even realize they have a sleep disorder. It’s often a bed partner or family member that the signs first.
You should make an appointment with your primary care doctor if you have one or more of these symptoms:
- Snoring interrupted by pauses in breathing
- Gasping or choking during sleep
- Restless sleep
- Excessive sleepiness or fatigue during the day
- Large neck size (greater than 17 inches in men or 16 inches in women)
- Morning headaches
- Sexual dysfunction
- Frequent urination at night
- Poor judgment or concentration
- Memory loss
- High blood pressure
Let us help you sleep better.
Our team of sleep experts will help diagnose and treat your sleep problems quickly and professionally.
These specialists will catalog your symptoms, evaluate your sleep patterns, identify possible problems and provide you with a sleep study, if necessary.
How do sleep studies work?
Sleep studies at Holston Valley are done seven days a week, 24 hours a day, and are monitored by trained sleep lab technologists.
And the results are read by certified sleep physicians.
The sleep study can provide detailed information to confirm you have a sleep disorder and can help your doctor determine what treatment you need.
Can a CPAP help?
If your sleep study indicates you have obstructive sleep apnea – a common condition where your upper airway gets narrow during sleep – you might be fitted for a CPAP, which stands for continuous positive airway pressure mask.
The CPAP delivers a constant stream of compressed air, so unobstructed breathing is possible.
CPAP can be highly effective in the treatment of sleep apnea, and it has the added benefit of reducing or eliminating snoring.
