Ascension Medical Group Via Christi Sleep Clinic on Carriage Parkway provides sleep studies and additional care to help you improve your sleep.
How your sleep center visit works: During your first appointment at the sleep center, you will meet with one of our board-certified sleep physicians who will discuss your symptoms, perform a physical exam, and explain any recommended testing that might be useful in determining your particular sleep disorder. After any testing is completed, your sleep physician will go over the results with you in detail, and make treatment recommendations. Finally, we will continue to work with you and monitor your progress with the recommended therapy.
Overnight sleep study — this test is also called a polysomnogram. You are monitored overnight in one of our sleep labs. This test is used to diagnose a variety of sleep disorders and to determine if therapy is successful.
We offer full-service continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP) equipment, supplies, and masks to our patients at the Ascension Via Christi Sleep Center. Equipment is of the highest quality and our registered respiratory therapists spend time customizing your particular equipment. Our respiratory technologists work closely with our sleep physicians so that your CPAP therapy is as effective and comfortable as possible. Our respiratory therapists are available to follow-up with you whenever you want to discuss any problems or issues you might have with your CPAP equipment.
Overnight sleep studies are performed 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.
