Welcome to the Sleep Disorder Center
How are you sleeping?
If you are one of the six percent of the American
population who have difficulty falling and
staying asleep, suffer from breathing disturbances,
periodic leg movement disorder or parasomnias
such as sleepwalking, then you know all too well
that a good night’s sleep is an elusive dream.
Sleep disorders can be caused by many factors,
from daily stress to lifestyle changes. The effect
of sleep deprivation influences one’s physical,
social and emotional health, while impacting how
that person thinks, works, interacts, drives, and
performs just about every other normal activity
throughout their day. If left untreated, disrupted
sleep can cause high blood pressure, weight gain,
impotency, headaches and can even increase the
risk of a heart attack or stroke.

Center is the newest addition to our continuum of
care offered to the families who live and work in

those in need to get their answers and put their
sleep problems to bed. We look forward to the

At the Massac Memorial Hospital Sleep Disorders
Center, our dynamic team of technicians and
specialists are ready to work with you to find the
source of your sleeplessness and then provide the
treatment needed to end your suffering. After a
physical examination and communication about
the symptoms, you will work with our team where
they will conduct a sleep study. Once completed,
your study will be read by a physician who
specializes in sleep disorders who will then provide
a detailed report for the referring physician.
Together, they will work with you to decide on the
best course of treatment and follow-up care.
sleep study is designed with your comfort in mind
and is conducted in furnished rooms that resemble
your bedroom at home. During the study, patients
are observed by staff and monitored by a painless,
skin surface polysomnograph, which analyzes
sleep patterns, monitors brain waves, muscle and
Following the study, clinic specialists work
with you and your physician to recommend a
treatment plan. In order to understand all of the
underlying causes of sleep disturbance, follow-up
studies may be recommended to ensure complete
and comprehensive treatment and recovery.
We know the value of a good night's sleep and
appreciate how difficult it can be to live with
disruptive sleep. We are here to help restore
your sweet dreams.

How do I deal with a loved one who snores.
Many families have at least one member who is known for their snoring. Besides distracting bed partners or roommates, chronic snoring can be a sign of a more serious condition. It can interfere with the sleep quality of the snorer and anyone in earshot. There is also mounting evidence that it may lead to other medical conditions such as heart disease.
