Sleep Services

Sleep is essential for a health lifestyle. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, insufficient sleep has been linked to a number of chronic disease and conditions. The CDC recommends most adults need 7 – 9 hours of sleep each night. The Sleep Center at Watauga Medical Center is the comprehensive sleep health services program in the High Country.

If you are feeling more sleepy during the day, please complete the Epworth Sleepiness Scale Questionnaire. We recommend contacting the ARHS Sleep Center if you score a 9 or above on the sleepiness scale.

Sleep Study

A sleep study is a comprehensive test that monitors brain activity, oxygen levels, heart rhythms, limb and breathing movements during a person’s normal sleep hours. The goal is to evaluate the brain and body activity to determine if any sleep disorders are present. The sleep team, comprised of physicians and technologists trained in sleep disorder medicine, reviews the data that is collect and determines a treatment plan.

Home Sleep Testing

A home sleep test is a study that is administered in the comfort of your home. It is specific for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea and is less comprehensive than the in-lab attended sleep study. It monitors oxygen saturations, snoring, and breathing patterns. The sleep technologist will instruct you on how to put on the device and start the sleep when you are ready to sleep. The device is returned the following day and the results are reviewed and interpreted by our board certified sleep physician.
