Sleep medicine clinic
It’s normal to have an occasional sleepless night. But if you routinely find it hard to fall asleep and stay asleep, you may have an undiagnosed but treatable health condition. At St. Patrick Hospital Sleep Medicine Clinic, our doctors and technologists are dedicated to solving sleep problems. Specialists from other fields of medicine are also at hand to manage any related health conditions.
Our doctors and technicians do various tests to find and resolve sleep problems. They may recommend medical equipment that you can take home to record what happens while you sleep.
Sleep medicine lab
For some conditions, doctors may advise sophisticated, computerized monitoring in our overnight sleep lab. You’ll sleep in a comfortable private room and wear painless devices that record your breathing, heart rate and other metrics. You can bring your own pillow, blanket, reading material or other items that help you feel more at home.
