HRRMC Sleep Studies
If your physician suspects a sleep disorder, he or she may order an overnight
diagnostic sleep study. Sleep studies at HRRMC are directed by Suzanne
Lesage, MD, a board-certified physician in sleep medicine and neurology.
Dr. Lesage and several specially trained respiratory therapists will conduct
this painless, non-invasive test in one of our
two sleep labs, which are located in the hospital’s Cardiopulmonary
Department. The sleep labs are designed to replicate a comfortable bedroom and each
adjoins a private bathroom.
Sensors will be placed on different parts of your body to measure:
- Brain waves
- Eye and jaw muscle movement
- Heart rate
- Leg movements
- Breathing effort
- Oxygen saturation
Information gathered from the sensors will help to determine the type and
severity of a sleep disorder. Appropriate treatment options will be discussed
following the sleep study.
To make an appointment for a sleep study (with a doctor’s order),
please call HRRMC’s Cardiopulmonary Department at (719) 530-2280.
Dr. Lesage is available for outpatient consultations at this location:
