Sleep Study Center

Because we know a good night’s sleep is important

Mille Lacs Health System Sleep Study Center is located on the Onamia Campus. To make your sleep study more comfortable, we located our Sleep Center in a house directly on the main campus, so you feel like you are at home, not in an institution. To assure we have top of the line testing, we partner with Precision Diagnostic Sleep Services to provide highly skilled sleep technicians and up to date testing equipment.

What is a sleep disorder? There are over 80 described sleep disorders. The most common sleep disorder is Obstructive Sleep Apnea. This is a condition where you stop breathing when you sleep. The most common symptom of sleep apnea is snoring and fatigue during the day. There are many other reasons that people need a sleep study.

How do I find out if I have a sleep disorder?

  • Visit your healthcare provider if you are concerned. After your health care provider orders a sleep study, you will be contacted by the sleep center scheduling and you’ll also receive a packet of information in the mail.
  • A sleep study (or Polysomnogram) is performed to see what is happening while you sleep. We will be monitoring your sleep patterns (stages of sleep), heart rate and rhythm (EKG), oxygen level, breathing, and leg movement.
  • After your study is complete, a sleep physician will interpret your sleep study. Once the sleep study results are final, a Respiratory Therapist will contact you and review the results and assist you with treatment options if needed.

Once a diagnosis is made, treatment can begin. Click here to learn treatment options.
