Treatment & Services
York Hospital's Sleep Lab functions as a diagnostic resource and short-term treatment facility to evaluate problems such as narcolepsy (when a person falls asleep suddenly many times a day), insomnia (when a person has trouble falling asleep or staying asleep night after night); sleep apnea syndrome (when a person stops breathing and then starts again many times a night) and Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) – when a person loses sleep because of a restless feeling in the legs. Proper diagnosis of a sleep disorder is the first step towards the development of a physician directed medical treatment plan which can improve and restore a patient’s quality of life.
Treatment helps in the prevention of other medical complications which commonly develop as a result of the excess strain put on one’s body when suffering from a sleep disorder. Treatment can help the person sleep better, have more energy, enjoy better health and get more out of life. At York Hospital's Sleep Lab, patients undergo a thorough sleep study conducted in a private and secure bedroom-like setting, equipped with comprehensive diagnostic equipment. During the night’s stay, trained clinical professionals carefully monitor a patient’s heart rate, breathing patterns and brainwave activity while asleep. Upon concluding the study, a detailed report of the study’s findings are evaluated by the patient's physician, and an individualized treatment plan for the patient is created to begin their recovery. Most insurance plans will cover sleep studies and treatment. Check with your insurance plan for details.
