Sleep disorders are not only hazardous to your ability to focus and be alert, they can be detrimental to your general health. If you are having trouble getting a good night's sleep, our Sleep Center at Florida Hospital Dade City can help determine the type of sleep disorder that is keeping you from getting the sleep you need and deserve.
Florida Hospital Dade City offers the services of board-certified physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating sleep disorders. Our team of professionals treat:
- Sleep apnea
- Chronic insomnia
- Nocturnal myoclonus/restless leg syndrome
- Gastroesophageal reflux (also known as acid reflux or heartburn) that may result in insomnia, poor sleep quality or periodic limb movement disorder
The Sleep Center at Florida Hospital Dade City provides complete clinical evaluations, including a nighttime sleep test called a polysomnogram. A polysomnogram test involves sleeping in a laboratory where all aspects of sleep are carefully monitored by our board certified sleep technologists. Your test takes place in a comfortable, private room equipped with a queen sized bed, private bathroom with shower, a flat screen television and free WiFi. Your sleep test is private, safe and painless.
During your sleep test, sensors are placed on your head, chest, on either side of your eyes and under your chin. These sensors record brain waves, eye movements and heart and muscle activity. Other sensors are used to monitor breathing and blood oxygen levels. Nighttime recordings often are followed by a daytime test, such as the multiple sleep latency test, to determine whether the sleep disorder involves an increased tendency to fall asleep.
To begin your sleep study process, please download our patient referral form for your physician to complete. Once this form is complete, you or your physician's office can contact our scheduling specialist at (352) 521-1592 to set up your appointment. Be sure to arrange your schedule to accomodate your sleep study. Your overnight sleep study will take place from 8pm to 6:30am.
