SSM Health offers sleep studies for night shift workers to diagnose apnea and other issues that disturb our much-needed rest. Patients are able to get sleep support on their schedules at the Centralia and Mt. Vernon ministries.
More than just a nuisance, sleep disorders can greatly affect quality of life, mental and physical abilities, and increase the risk of health conditions, including heart attack, diabetes, and stroke. At SSM Health, they understand how important sleep is to your overall wellness and are committed to helping you get the sleep you need to live your healthiest life. Their sleep specialists are trained to identify and diagnose sleep-related disorders and can help you create a plan for better sleep. If you are experiencing a sleep problem, speak with your SSM Health provider today about how to get started.
“Having worked night shifts for most of my life, I know the impact this shift can have on individuals. Quality of life decreases tremendously when you couple night shift work with having a sleep disorder. This can have a direct effect on physical and mental health,” said Andy Davis, MHA RPSGT, Manager of Neurology and Sleep Services.
