Sleep Center at Lansdale Hospital
A sleep study (polysomnogoram) is a noninvasive, advanced method of diagnostic testing conducted during an overnight stay. Before you go to sleep, a technologist will attach a small monitoring device to your head, arms, legs and torso. As you are sleeping, trained clinicians will monitor and record your sleep patterns, heart rate, breathing, muscle movement, brain waves and oxygen levels. The center's sleep rooms have been designed to offer the comforts of home with a queen-sized bed, television, recliner and adjoining bathroom to make the overnight stay as pleasant as possible.
Sleep is essential for our physical and mental well-being. It is a restorative process that enables a person to be healthy and productive. Adults should have between seven and nine hours of sleep a night, yet millions suffer from sleep disorders that deprive them of this necessary rest. These disorders diminish quality of life and pose significant medical problems such as strain on the heart and lungs that can lead to high blood pressure, heart attack or stroke.
