St. John’s Riverside Hospital understands the importance of sleep to overall health and well-being. In fact, when people get the correct amount of sleep each night, their risk for developing disease may decrease.
St. John's Riverside Hospital established Sleep Diagnostics Services to meet the growing incidence of sleep apnea and other sleep disorders.
Early diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea is important because it may be associated with irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke. Left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to more serious conditions.
An overnight stay in a comfortable hospital room is all it takes for technicians to monitor heart and brainwaves and airflow. Throughout the night a dedicated technician will be present to monitor the tests while you sleep comfortably. Tests results will be promptly sent to your physician within 72 hours of the test.
As a result of a sound sleep, patients notice a big improvement in their quality of life. Patients have more energy, and can do more.
Sleep Diagnostic Services is open to residents throughout the tri-state area with a doctor referral. The staff handles all the paperwork for the patients before testing, including pre-certification with most medical insurance carriers.
