There are more than 80 types of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia and restless legs syndrome. We understand that these conditions can significantly affect healthy sleep–and this, in turn, impacts your overall health, safety and quality of life.
The Sleep Center at Flowers Hospital performs sleep studies on children, starting at age 12, through adults. Sleep Studies at the Sleep Center take place in comfortable, home-like rooms.
Flowers Hospital’s Sleep-Wake Disorders Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine
One out of three adults experiences some type of sleep disorder. Many of these people suffer needlessly because they are unaware that a problem exists. The American Medical Association reports that next to the common cold, sleepiness is the most widely voiced health complaint among Americans.
The Sleep-Wake Disorders Center at Flowers Hospital provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for people who are experiencing sleep and wake related problems.
Left untreated, some sleep-wake disorders can lead to serious health problems.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is very common – affecting more than 12 million Americans, most of whom are undiagnosed, according to the National Institute of Health. OSA is closely associated with the following health problems:
Patients with a strong family history of any of these problems should be considered for a sleep study. Both adults and children are evaluated at the center.
Results of the study are reviewed by physicians who are board certified sleep specialists, who then recommend treatment.
Your study from the Sleep-Wake Disorders Center is an accepted medical procedure and is covered by most third-party carriers. Flowers Hospital is a preferred inpatient/outpatient facility for Blue Cross/Blue Shield and all of our sleep physicians are Preferred Medical Doctors. However, because it is impossible to predict the extent of your coverage, it is recommended that you contact your insurance representative to ensure your sleep study will be covered.
All of the procedures in the center require a physician’s order. You or your physician may schedule the initial appointment by calling the Sleep-Wake Disorders Center at Flowers Hospital, Monday-Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at (334) 794-5000, extension 1685.
Should you need to make an appointment after hours or on weekends, you may leave a message.
