Certified sleep technologists staff the Sleep Lab at Fairfield Memorial Hospital. Sleep studies are done to determine what is causing sleep problems, such as:
Sleep apnea – this is when you stop breathing during sleep for 10 seconds or longer.
Narcolepsy – problems sleeping at night
Insomnia – problems sleeping at night
Periodic Limb Movement Disorder – repeated muscle twitching of the feet, arms or legs during sleep.
With the presence of any of these symptoms, you should call your physician and discuss having a sleep study performed.
