About Us

Ascension St. Vincent - Indianapolis Sleep Center provides personalized sleep studies for adults and children with sleep disorders.

Sleep medicine doctors at Ascension St. Vincent Indianapolis Sleep Center provide a variety of sleep tests for adults and children. Our sleep lab is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. This accreditation ensures high-quality, compassionate care is delivered to patients with sleep disorders. We start by listening to you and your concerns. Then, we work with you to create a care plan that’s right for you or your child. Our sleep doctors and registered sleep technologists specialize in performing diagnostic tests to better understand how your breathing, napping and nightly sleep routine affects your heart, lungs and brain. Common sleep conditions include:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea (when the upper airway collapses while sleeping) 
  • Central sleep apnea (when breathing repeatedly stops during sleep)
  • Hypoventilation disorders (conditions that affect breathing)
  • Sleep related hypoxemia (low levels of oxygen while sleeping)
  • Hypersomnia (excessive daytime sleepiness)
  • Narcolepsy (difficulty staying awake)
  • Parasomnias (nightmares, night terrors and sleepwalking)
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Circadian rhythm disorder
  • Insomnia (difficulty falling or staying asleep)

Sleep tests for adults

When chronic snoring, fatigue and daytime sleepiness affect your daily life, ask your doctor if a sleep study is right for you. Our sleep center provides a wide range of testing options, including:

  • Actigraphy (at-home sleep study)
  • Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) titration
  • Multiple sleep latency test (evaluates daytime sleepiness and helps diagnose narcolepsy)
  • Neurodiagnostic tests and epilepsy monitoring
  • Split study, half diagnostic and half with the CPAP device
  • Wakefulness testing

Sometimes, at-home sleep apnea monitoring is recommended. We provide the sleep study device and instructions. Once you complete the sleep study, return the device to our sleep center to be analyzed. A diagnostic report is then sent to your doctor.

Sleep tests for children

The pediatric sleep center was designed with children and family in mind – with comfortable rooms for sleep studies. For children who need an overnight sleep study, a parent or loved one will stay the night with their child. A consultation with a board-certified sleep medicine doctor will help determine which study is right for your child. Pediatric sleep studies include:

  • Outpatient sleep study
  • Multiple sleep latency test (evaluates daytime sleepiness and helps diagnose narcolepsy)
  • Actigraphy (at-home sleep study)
  • CPAP/ BiPAP monitoring
  • Sleep endoscopy (airway evaluation while asleep)
  • Sleep diary or sleep log
  • Nocturnal oximetry (an overnight test that evaluates oxygen levels while asleep)
  • Cardiac apnea monitoring (monitors the heart rate of sleeping babies)

Personalized sleep disorder care plans

Your doctor provides treatment options to help you or your child manage symptoms such as fatigue, restlessness, difficulty concentrating and anxiety. Sleep disorder treatments also help support brain and heart health by improving the delivery of oxygen throughout your body. Treatments for sleep disorders may include:

  • Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device for sleep apnea
  • Insomnia treatment using cognitive behavior therapy
  • Lifestyle and dietary changes
  • Medically supervised weight loss or bariatric surgery
  • Medication management
  • Relaxation skills
