Center for Sleep Medicine
Mercy's Center for Sleep Medicine offers the latest technology in a comfortable, contemporary setting. Expert, board certified sleep physicians will diagnose and treat sleep disorders, with certified technologists monitoring patients' sleep cycle during overnight sleep study tests in a hotel-like environment.
Sleep disorders can include conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, restless leg syndrome and abnormal behaviors occurring during sleep. Men and women who have a sleep disorder often wake up not feeling refreshed and may experience daytime drowsiness or suffer from "brain fog," or confusion. Sleep disorders that go undiagnosed can interfere with a person's quality of life, work productivity and can increase the likelihood of having motor vehicle and work-related accidents. Patients with undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnea run the risk of potentially developing very serious health consequences, such as heart attack, arrhythmias, high blood pressure, stroke and even glaucoma.
