People spend roughly one-third of their lives asleep, so quality of sleep directly affects quality of life. Studies show that one out of three Americans has a sleep disorder that contributes to potentially life-threatening mistakes and accidents on or off the job. The good news is that once detected, most sleep disorders can be corrected. If you have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or remaining awake, the Lourdes Sleep Lab can help.

The types of problems treated through this program include:

  • Sleep Apnea
  • Snoring
  • Oxygenation Problems
  • Insomnia

Quality of sleep directly affects quality of life. As the technology, research, and field of Sleep Medicine grows - so have we.  We continue to provide state of the art, cutting edge equipment through which we can collect information while the patient sleeps quietly and comfortably and at the same time, allow the physician immediate access to information.  We continually update the education of our staff of certified respiratory therapists, Registered Polysomnographic Technologists, and Board eligible Polysomnographic Technicians.

When you schedule an appointment for a sleep study at our Sleep Lab, you will spend the night in one of our private, quiet comfortable rooms. Our rooms have amenities that will make your stay as pleasant as possible, such as:

  • Premium mattresses designed for different body types and styles of sleep.
  • Private bathrooms and showers.
  • Recliners for patients who can't sleep laying down.
  • Flat panel televisions.
  • Mission style wood furniture

Our rooms have queen size beds, beds for smaller frames and children, and special mattresses designed for support and comfort. The private bathrooms all have a roomy fully mirrored vanity area and an area for hair dryers, etc., for our patients who leave for work from the facility.  There is also an area for patient caregivers to spend the night (when necessary).  A light snack and/or coffee in the morning is available at the patient's request. Working closely with Lourdes Health Support enables patients to quickly acquire any item needed or prescribed by the physician.  This provides patients with continuity of care within the Lourdes system (for those who choose it).  Even after patients have gone home and had their prescriptions filled, the Sleep Lab helps patients fine tune any and all compliance issues related to any therapy prescribed by the physician.  

Pulmonary Function Testing

As the outpatient arm of Lourdes Respiratory Care Services Department, the Pulmonary Function Lab performs various breathing or lung-related tests. The tests must be ordered by a medical provider and can vary from brief screenings done as part of the pre-surgical clearance process to more involved tests that are used to assist in the diagnosis and management of many diseases of the lungs including Asthma, COPD, and Pulmonary Fibrosis to name a few. Some of the tests offered by the department include:

  • Spirometry
  • Complete Pulmonary Function Testing
  • Arterial Blood Gas Analysis
  • Simple Pulmonary Stress Testing
  • Methacholine Challenge Testing
