Sleep Disorders Center
More than 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders. Sleep is essential for physical and mental renewal, and long-term sleep difficulties can lead to serious medical problems. Bluefield Regional Medical Center’s sleep medicine doctors, sleep technologists and other clinicians are dedicated to helping you get a good night’s sleep. We offer diagnostic and treatment services for a wide range of sleep disorders, including:
- Chronic snoring
- Pediatric sleep disorders, including night terrors and sleep walking
- Restless leg syndrome
- Sleep apnea
Our team conducts sleep studies to evaluate your sleep patterns and draw from a variety of treatment options to help you achieve restful sleep.
Our laboratory consists of two plush rooms with comfy queen sized beds and recliners where patients can relax and watch television prior to settling in to bed for the night. The technologists are familiar with the various sleep disorders, what needs the patient may present upon arrival in the lab, and how to provide assistance to these patients.
Some sleep disorders like sleep disordered breathing, periodic limb movements of sleep, restless leg syndrome and narcolepsy may require a polysomnograph for adequate diagnosis and evaluation for treatments. Other sleep disorders may not require a study, as advised by the AASM.
