Sleep Disorders Lab

Sleep is not just a "time out" from our busy routines, it is essential to our physical and emotional health. Sleep loss can impair our memory, learning, logical reasoning and contribute to strained home relationships and problems at work. In general, most healthy adults need an average of seven to nine hours of sleep a night.

The Sleep Disorders Lab at Abbeville Area Medical Center offers private rooms in a comfortable, relaxing environment. Studies are performed two nights a week by a registered polysomnography technologist and interpreted by a board certified sleep physician.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may need to undergo a simple and painless sleep study:
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Snoring
  • Problems falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Leg jerks during sleep
  • Feeling tired after a full night's sleep
