Recognizing the need for sleep services in our county, Carteret Health Care opened a Sleep Disorders Center. The lab consists of four bedroom suites for performing a broad range of sleep related services.
Patients arrive just in time of their normal bedtime and are watched closely throughout the night. A camera records the patient's activity and electrodes monitor a patient's brainwaves and cardiovascular output during the night. These findings are analyzed to help determine the cause of a patient's sleeplessness.
Sleep Center patients will find wood floors, comfortable beds with colorful quilts, granite counters, and a flat screen television to ease the transition.
By improving sleep related disorders, a person not only can get a good night's sleep, but improve their overall health as well.
The Sleep Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Recently, the hospital’s sleep center received its highly-sought accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
