What is the Sleep Lab?
The Heart of Texas Healthcare System’s commitment to providing timely delivered, accurate, human-scored sleep studies is what sets it apart from other alternatives. Our technical staff is well-trained, closely supervised, and receives consistent positive feedback from patients.
Each sleep study that is performed is personally reviewed by a Pulmonologist of Cardiologist, prior to the rendering of a final interpretation. When a study is reviewed properly, it is a time consuming process. Our biggest priority lies not in processing a computer scored report within a few days, but in assuring the technical reliability of each study, the scoring, and the final interpretation is of the highest accuracy and reliability to allow for the utmost quality of clinical decision making.
In addition to the evaluation and treatment of breathing-related sleep disorders, our institution provides consultative and treatment services for patients suffering from other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy, insomnia, shift work sleep disorder, parasomnia, periodic limb movements, restless legs, and other sleep disturbances.
Some of the warning signs of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) include: snores loudly and frequently, stops breathing for short periods, sweats heavily during sleep, daytime behavioral problems, restless sleep, morning headaches, excessive daytime sleepiness, the urge to fall asleep at school/work, and difficulty with concentration.
