Sleep Lab

Sleep Services Temporarily Unavailable

Due to unforeseen circumstances, sleep services at Horizon Health are temporarily unavailable. This is due to equipment recalls and the retirement of our full-time sleep lab technician.
We recognize this is a valuable service to our patients. We are currently pursuing replacement equipment, and concentrating our recruitment efforts to properly staff this service. We appreciate the support our sleep service has received, and are committed to reestablishing it in the near future.

How do I schedule a sleep study?

A referral from a healthcare provider is needed to participate in a sleep study. Sleep study results are sent directly to the patient’s provider for follow-up. If you think you could benefit from a sleep study, consult your primary care provider.

What to Expect

When undergoing a sleep study, patients will spend the night in the sleep lab but can resume their normal daily routine in the morning. The sleep technologists monitor biological functions, such as brain wave activity, eye movement, muscle tone, heart rhythm, and breathing via monitors placed on the head, chest, and legs. After a full night’s sleep is recorded, the data is presented to a physician for interpretation.

The sleep lab is located in the Rehabilitation Services building behind Paris Community Hospital. Each room features the following amenities:

  • 42-inch TV
  • Wi-Fi
  • Queen-size bed
  • Fan
  • Personal restroom
