What to Expect
The Metro Health Sleep Lab has helped thousands of people improve their sleep since its inception in 1992, and now the specialized staff has additional testing rooms and cutting-edge monitoring equipment. You can count on our team to provide consultations and sleep studies in a timely manner, as well as a thorough follow-up program to ensure treatment success.
The sleep lab’s hotel-like setting includes:
- Spacious testing rooms with private bathrooms, temperature controls, adjustable beds,
flat-screen TVs and Internet access
- State-of-the-art infrared cameras and other equipment to allow for careful monitoring
- A special suite designed to allow a caregiver to spend the night close to a disabled or elderly patient
A visit to the Metro Health Sleep Lab begins with a consultation with one of our specially trained sleep medicine physicians. An overnight visit for a sleep study may be recommended. During the study, sleep technicians monitor brain waves, eye movement, muscle activity, heart rate and a number of other conditions throughout the patient’s sleep cycle. Once a study is complete, patients meet again with a doctor to discuss treatment options. Those can include changes to the sleep environment, recommendations for improved sleep hygiene, weight loss, surgery or possibly the use of specialized equipment to facilitate proper breathing during sleep.
