Sleep Study

Sleep MedicineToday's technology is helping millions of people overcome sleep disorders.

NMMC Sleep Disorders Centers in Tupelo, Eupora, Iuka and West Point are equipped with the latest diagnostic tools and staffed by highly trained technicians and physicians.

You may be asked to spend a night or two at the Sleep Disorders Center for testing. A polysomnogram, or sleep study, is performed throughout the night in a beautifully decorated private room, complete with sophisticated equipment to monitor sleep patterns, breathing, heart activity and body movements.

During your stay, we will make every effort to maintain your regular sleep routine and make you as comfortable as possible.

Sleep studies are conducted in a homelike environment featuring ceiling fans, remote control TV, technologist call system (in headboard) and CPAP devices (on bedside table). Rooms have an individual temperature control.

The Control Room is the heart of the center, including computer-based digital study acquisition stations, reference manuals, video and audio monitors, Information System computers, telephones and fax machine. Technologists monitor patient activity and record and score the studies from the control room.

Once a diagnosis is made, our physicians will recommend specific treatment options for your sleep disorder.
