Sleep LabThe Monongahela Valley Hospital Sleep Laboratory is located on the 3rd. floor of the Sweeney-Melenyzer Pavilion. The Sleep Laboratory offers a very comfortable, discrete atmosphere featuring a private bedroom and bath setting. The Lab has been established to aid in diagnosing breathing-related sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea. The Sleep Lab is operated under the direction of a physician who is board-certified in sleep medicine, and staffed by registered respiratory therapists who are specially trained in polysomnographic technology (the study of sleep disorders).
Sleep apnea means an individual "stops breathing" periodically during sleep. Airways become blocked during sleep, making breathing difficult. Some causes of sleep apnea include being overweight, having a narrow throat, jaw structure, of nasal obstruction.
Some symptoms of sleep disorders are excessive daytime sleepiness, loud snoring, depression (reduced sense of well-being), lack of energy and motivation, impotence, anxiety, obesity, high blood pressure, awakening with a choking feeling or gasping for air, racing heartbeat during the night, and frequent awakenings.
After an individual's personal physician or specialist refers him/her for Sleep Lab services, an appointment is necessary to be scheduled for the polysomnogram (sleep Study). On the evening of the sleep study, patients arrive at the sleep lab and are required to stay overnight. The sleep technologist reviews the patient's medical history and asks questions about their activities and sleep habits. Sensors are attached to various parts of the patient's skin. These sensors are attached to state-of-the-art monitoring equipment that will measure the patient's brain waves, eye movements, heart rate, muscle activity, oxygen levels, and breathing patterns during sleep. In the morning, patients awake and may enjoy a light snack before preparing for their day at home or work.
Following the sleep study, the physician reviews the results and makes recommendations to the patient's personal physician. Recommendations may include weight loss, nasal continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP), medication, sleep pattern changes, dental appliances, or surgery.
Individuals interested in the Sleep Lab studies at Monongahela Valley Hospital should contact their personal physician for a prescription and then call the Sleep Lab at 724-258-1490 to schedule an appointment.
