West Region Sleep Center physicians are specialists in the field of Sleep Medicine. Aided by the latest diagnostic technology, West Region Sleep Center physicians can help detect possible harmful sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, snoring, restless leg syndrome, insomnia, and sleepwalking - all of which can contribute to serious health problems.
The goal at West Region Sleep Center is to help maximize our patients’ sleep potential for optimum physical and emotional health.
We work together with a patient's primary care physician to help diagnose sleep disorders and suggest the most effective plan of treatment. West Region Sleep Center is pleased to offer a full spectrum of treatment procedures for all types of sleep disorders. Our practice works hard to ensure every patient will receive the best clinical diagnostic services and treatment for his or her sleep disorder.
Symptoms during the day include fatigue or lack of engery, irritability, morning headaches, sleep attacks or drowsiness, lack of concentration, and trouble staying away while driving.
At night, patients my experience difficulty falling asleep; periods of wakefulness; body jerks or kicking; abnormal breathing such as coughing, choking, or gasping for breath; snoring; constant dreaming; or heartburn.
Physicians may refer patients to any of our Ohio Chest Physician medical offices for consultations or evaluations regarding a potential sleep disorder. Referring physicians can also send patients directly to West Region Sleep Center (WRSC) for specific sleep tests.
Following completion, all of our sleep study reports are forwarded to the patient's primary care physician for consultation on diagnosis and treatment. Depending on each patient's diagnosis, treatment can include specific lifestyle changes, weight loss, and nasal or oral devices.
Should treatment with a device such as CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) be necessary, in many cases the Center will supply this equipment. We will help ensure that the equipment is properly calibrated to the prescribed setting, as well as make sure the patient is provided with the most comfortable delivery system (CPAP mask, headgear, etc.).
In addition to offering one-on-one equipment setup and patient education, our center will provide ongoing DME service, as well as replacement masks, tubing, and related supplies.
