Cass Regional Medical Center's Sleep Lab is used to evaluate, diagnose and treat sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a medical disorder that causes a person to stop breathing for periods of time during the night and can be linked to other serious health problems such as high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, stroke, and/or depression/anxiety. Other sleep disorders can include restless leg syndrome (RLS), periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD) and narcolepsy, all of which can affect a person’s health. Most sleep disorders can be successfully treated or controlled once properly diagnosed.
The Cass Regional Sleep Lab is committed to helping you with your sleep needs. Of the estimated 22 million Americans suffering from sleep apnea, approximately 80% of individuals with moderate to severe sleep apnea are undiagnosed,” said Travis Schlenger, RPSGT, RST. “If you feel you have a sleep disorder, talk to your doctor or call the Sleep Lab for further information.”
