Sleep Apnea Testing

In relationship with Winmar Diagnostics, Pembina County Memorial Hospital provides obstructive sleep apnea diagnostic testing for adults, infants, and pediatric patients who are experiencing respiratory-related sleep disorders.

If you have symptoms of sleep apnea, your doctor may ask you to have a sleep apnea test, called a polysomnogram.  This can be done at Pembina County Memorial Hospital.

A polysomnogram or sleep study is a multiple-component test that electronically transmits and records specific physical activities while you sleep.  The recordings are analyzed by a qualified sleep specialist to determine whether or not you have sleep apnea or another type of sleep disorder.

If sleep apnea is determined, you may be fitted with additional equipment and could be asked to do furnther sleep testing in order to determine the best treatment option.

On the night of your sleep study you will assigned to a private bedroom in the hospital.  Near the bedroom will be a central monitoring area, there the technicians monitor sleeping patients.  You will be hooked to equipment that may look uncomfortable, however, most people fall asleep with little difficulty
