Sleep Studies

Sleep studies are a series of tests that help evaluate what happens to the body during sleep. They can help diagnose sleep disorders, which include sleep-disruptive behaviors (such as sleepwalking), sleep apnea, daytime sleepiness, and insomnia.

Tips for getting better sleep
Establish a routine each night before bedtime, such as reading, taking a warm shower or bath, light exercise or resting quietly. Avoid too much mental stimulation during the hour or so prior to bedtime.

Create a sleep haven. Do not keep a TV, tablet or cellphone in your bedroom. If you can’t get to sleep, rather than lying awake in bed, try getting out of bed and doing something else. Preferably, move to another room and return to bed only when sleepy.

Nix the nap. Avoid naps in the afternoon or early evening.

Get up and go. No matter how poorly you have slept the night before, always set your alarm to arise at the same time each morning.

Regular exercise can be an effective sleep aid. It releases energy and mental tensions. It is better not to exercise strenuously right before bedtime

The Power of a Restful Night’s Sleep

Potential for sleep apnea is one of many reasons patients seek out a sleep study at the Gritman Medical Center Sleep Center.

“People who are feeling excessively tired in the day, have hypertension, have snoring or apneas at night, those are good indications of sleep apnea,” Registered Sleep Technologist Mark Johnson said. “They need to go to a physician to have a sleep study performed. With the treatment being the CPAP.”
