Is fatigue making your days long? Is your snoring or your partner’s snoring keeping you awake at night? Sleeplessness and snoring are just two symptoms of sleep apnea. If you are experiencing these symptoms, then you may want to talk to your provider about scheduling a sleep study at Mitchell County Regional Health Center.
According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep, which can result in both sleep disturbance and reduced oxygen delivery to vital organs. Common symptoms include snoring, daytime sleepiness, weight gain, and un-refreshing sleep. Sleep apnea is more than just a noisy nuisance; it is associated with high blood pressure, automobile accidents, mood and memory problems, and heart disease
Mitchell County Regional Health Center offers a newly remodeled sleep study room with all the comforts of home, even a Sleep Number bed. Simply contact your provider and tell them you’d like to do a sleep study at MCRHC.
