Your first visit to a Norton Sleep Center is a consultation with a specially trained sleep physician. You will be asked to complete questionnaires, which provide important sleep and medical histories. This information will be reviewed with you, and a sleep physician will determine if sleep testing is required.
The center's diagnostic testing area consists of several private sleeping rooms with comfortable amenities and sophisticated equipment for monitoring sleep stages, breathing patterns, heart activity, blood-oxygen levels and body movements.
If a sleep study is required, you will spend one night in the center. You may be asked to stay for additional testing and evaluation procedures.
Screening and treating sleep apnea are now considered part of a routine preventive sleep medicine program and should be part of any regular physical exam.
Call (502) 636-7459 or email Norton Sleep Centers to find out more about diagnosis and treatment.
