Consultation and Diagnostic Services
During your initial visit at the sleep center a registered sleep specialist will collect your vital information, which includes blood pressure, height, weight and general physical characteristics. All that are used to determine your general health.
You will than be interviewed about your sleep habits. Your sleep history is used to evaluate symptoms such as difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, daytime sleepiness or fatigue, breathing problems during sleep, restless legs at night and other various troublesome behaviors. Following is the sleep study known as a Polysomnogram (PSG). The Polysomnogram is performed in order to determine what stages of sleep an individual achieves and whether any sleep-related abnormalities are present.
A PSG test measures your body functions while you sleep. Tests vary depending on the individual case and some measurements taken may include:
Brain Waves (Electro-Encephalogram, EEG)
Heart Waves (Electro-Cardiogram,EKG)
Eye Movements (Electro-Oculargram, EOG)
Limb Movements (Electo-Myogram, EMG)
Bands around the torso to measure chest, abdomen movements during breathing
Sensors on the legs to measure leg movements
Blood Oxygen (Pulse Oximetry: SpO2)
This sleep study is available day and night for the diagnosis of sleep disorders and each study is interpreted by Dr. Rolf Holle.
Sleep Study, Diagnosis, Care Plan
Based on your physician's order, prior to and or following the sleep study, arrangements may be made for a personal consultation with Dr. Rolf Holle. The doctor will integrate your sleep history with the findings from the sleep study to determine a diagnosis and make the appropriate treatment recommendations.
Overnight sleep testing is a procedure covered by most insurance plans, as well as Medicare. Marcus Daly Sleep Center assists you by verifying your coverage and obtaining any pre-certification or authorization your insurance might require.
"A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book."
Sleep is very important for our quality of life and for our body's recuperative powers. Sleep deprivation has been linked to increased inflammation in our body, which increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. Decreased quality and quantity of sleep has also been shown to cause weight gain and sleep deprivation affects our immune system. During sleep our bodies repair, recharge, and do maintenance necessary to keep out intruders such as viruses and bacteria.
During sleep, a person doesn't hear anything except loud noises, muscles are repaired, the immune system boosted and memories organized.
