Just like other illnesses, leaving these symptoms untreated can cause further health problems such as:
- Cardiac arrhythmias
- Myocardial ischemia
- Myocardial infarction
Carlinville Area Hospital & Clinics offers a state-of-the-art Sleep Lab located in the Medical Office Building located at 20163 N. Broad St. Sleep studies performed at our Sleep Lab can help diagnose sleep disorders through tests that record and measure body functions such as heart rate, breathing rate, airflow, brain wave activity, eye, and muscle movement and blood oxygen level during sleep.
Sleep studies are available for pediatrics and adults in a comfortable, private room that provides a home-like setting.
Testing is available Monday through Friday. Special arrangements may be available for Saturdays and Sundays. All results are interpreted by a board-certified pulmonologist. Sleep studies are covered by most private insurers, as well as Medicare and Medicaid. Most studies can be performed within one to two weeks of scheduling the test.
