When do you need a Sleep Study?
It makes sense that with so many people suffering from lack of sleep, there are just as many causes. Sleeplessness can be brought on by life stress, such as job loss or change, death of a loved one or moving. Sleep problems can also be physical or medical from chronic pain or even psychiatric from depression. Other factors that can contribute include genetics, night shift work, medications and aging. Whatever the cause is of your sleeplessness, finding the cure is the key.

In most cases, a physician will prescribe a sleep study to improve your quality of care and life. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you snore?
  • Do you wake with a headache?
  • Do you wake up frequently during the night?
  • Do you have difficulty falling asleep?
  • Do your legs or arms feel restless (creepy-crawly sensation)?
  • Do you fall asleep at inappropriate times?
  • Have you had any unusual behavior during the night (acting out dreams, eating, etc.)?
  • Do you feel sleepy all of the time?

If you or someone you know answers yes to one or more of the above, you may have a sleep problem that requires medical treatment. Call the Health First Sleep Center at 321-868-5832. It's time to get a good night's sleep.

Common Issues Causing Sleep Problems
Although there are several types of sleep disorders, they generally fall into two main groups, parasomnias and dyssomnias:

  • Parasomnias occur only during sleep, but are not part of the processes that actually control sleep and wakefulness. Examples include:
    • Somnambulism (sleep walking)
    • Sleep terrors
    • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Dyssomnias interrupt the normal sleep/wake cycle. Examples include:
    • Sleep apnea (obstructive, central or mixed)
    • Restless leg syndrome
    • Periodic limb movements of sleep
    • Insomnia
    • Narcolepsy

The most common disorder, and one that can seriously affect your health, is sleep apnea. Apnea is when you stop breathing for at least ten seconds while you're sleeping and can occur up to hundreds of times per night. Usually, you don't know it's happening, but often your spouse or a family member has observed you snoring and gasping—two common symptoms of apnea. During apneas, your body—especially your heart—is deprived of adequate oxygen. If it's caused by an obstruction, you struggle to breathe and eventually wake up, usually without recalling it, in order to reestablish breathing. Increased blood pressure and irregular heartbeats are often associated with apnea.


Paying for Sleep Center Services
Most insurance plans provide coverage for evaluation, diagnostic testing, and treating sleep disorders, subject to your deductible and co-payment limits. You will need a referral from a physician. After your initial evaluation, your insurance may also require pre-authorization if you need testing. If so, our staff can make arrangements for the authorization. If you want to check with your plan about what is covered, be sure to let your insurance plan know that all Health First Sleep Center tests are outpatient procedures.

We can tell you many reasons why you should choose Health First Sleep Center—but we would rather let our patients tell you. The following are actual letters from some of our former patients:
