The CMH Sleep Lab diagnoses and treats a variety of sleeping disorders. In 2010, our lab was reaccredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) as a full range of service sleep center.
Commonly, sleep patients are referred to a sleep center by their primary care physician. A sleep study is conducted by a qualified sleep technician and is a safe and painless procedure.
Our Sleep Lab offers consultation and follow-up services with a board-certified sleep physician, as well as CPAP/BiPAP titrations, home sleep testing, polysomnograms, split-night studies, maintenance of wakefulness tests and multiple sleep latency tests. We employ technical staff that includes respiratory therapists and registered polysomnographic technologists.

Common Disorders and Treatments
Sleep specialists are able to diagnose a variety of sleeping disorders, including sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia and restless legs syndrome. Sleep apnea is a frequently occurring disorder involving the collapse of the airway during sleep, causing snoring and cessation of breathing. Sleep apnea can contribute to a number of serious health risks such as hypertension, obesity, heart attack, diabetes and stroke.
Physician Scheduling Options
The CMH Sleep Lab is an open lab, allowing physicians to choose which services are needed for you. Physicians may either send you for a consultation with our sleep specialists, where our specialist will order the appropriate study and follow up with you directly; or physicians may send you directly for a sleep study, having the option to follow up with you themselves.
