Sleep Studies are offered at the Haywood Regional Medical Center Sleep Disorders Center. Specially trained sleep technicians evaluate and diagnose patients with a wide variety of sleep abnormalities and related wakeful disorders.

Most sleep disorders can be effectively treated once accurately diagnosed. Some conditions may require medication while others may only require a change in daily habits or work schedule.

If you exhibit any of the following symptoms on a recurring basis, you should seek medical attention:

  • Loud Snoring
  • Awakening yourself with your own snoring
  • Waking up non-refreshed and having trouble staying awake during the day
  • Waking up with headaches
  • Waking up during the night with the sensation of choking or gasping for breath
  • Waking up sweating
  • Sleeping at inappropriate times
  • Temporary weakness of body or speech muscles occurring with excitement or strong emotions
  • Sleepwalking
  • Talking nightmares
  • Disturbing dreams
  • Sleep-related seizures
  • Repeated movement of legs during sleep
  • Impotence
  • Dissatisfaction with the quality or amount of sleep

Your personal physician can assess your situation and if necessary refer you to Sleep Services for further evaluation.

The sleep lab is now located at Haywood Regional Medical Center on the 7th Floor West - patients will report to the Emergency Registration desk to check-in.
