Sleep Conditions Treated

Southern Regional's Sleep Diagnostic Center can help diagnose and treat sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, narcolepsy and other sleep and breathing disorders.

By treating these conditions now, you can prevent life-threatening complications. For example, sleep apnea could dangerously raise your risk for heart attack, stroke, hypertension, depression and auto accidents. It can also cause difficulties with learning and memory. If you have a disruption in your breathing that lasts 10 seconds or more, it can be stressful to your brain and heart.

People who have blockage in their breathing more than 15 times per hour of sleep are at a higher risk of:

  • Heart attacks
  • Heart failure
  • Heart rhythm problems
  • Strokes
  • Sleepiness that can lead to car crashes
