Helping Patients Find a Better Night’s Sleep

A good night’s sleep is an essential part of healthy living, but for patients diagnosed with a sleep disorder, rest can be hard to come by. There are various types of sleep disorders, but the most common is obstructive sleep apnea “OSA”. This disorder impacts 1 in 4 adults in the United States.

Why is Sleep so Important?

Getting enough continuous quality sleep contributes to how we feel and perform the next day and also has a huge impact on the overall quality of our lives. When we sleep well, we wake up feeling refreshed, alert and ready to face that day’s challenges. When we don’t, every part of our lives – jobs, relationships, productivity, health and safety- can suffer.

When is Sleep Testing Necessary?

Occasional sleepless nights are a normal part of life, but when it begins to affect your activities of daily living, intervention may be needed.

Wyandot Memorial SleepCare provides care to those that suffer from a variety of sleep disorders. Our slumber can be plagued by over 80 known sleep disorders.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a pause in breathing for a short period of time during sleep. This can happen hundreds of times during the night. These disruptions can cause your rest to be less refreshing and your body is unable to reach deep restorative sleep, leaving you tired during the day.
