Sleep Services and Procedures at Premier Health

Even ordinary activities of daily life can be difficult when you can’t get the sleep you need. Premier Health offers you help overcoming your sleep problems. We provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment for a variety of complex sleep-related issues, especially sleep-related breathing issues. You can come to one location for appointments, sleep testing and follow-up care.

Physician Evaluation and Support

Our experienced sleep specialists understand the difficulties poor sleep may be causing in your daily life. Coming to a Premier Health sleep center is the first step in overcoming your sleep problems. We offer full-consultative care that focuses all our experience and knowledge on helping you manage or overcome your sleep disorder.

Our sleep center physicians evaluate your sleep problems and map out a treatment plan to help you overcome your sleep disorder. In many cases, all you need is a discussion with one of our sleep specialists.

Diagnostic Testing to Pinpoint the Source of Your Sleep Difficulties

If face-to-face evaluation doesn’t resolve your sleep problems, you may need at-home sleep testing or an overnight stay at a Premier Health sleep center. While you sleep we monitor your sleep patterns in a comfortable, private bedroom setting.

To gather data on your sleep we monitor such measures as:

  • Body movement
  • Brain activity
  • Eye movement
  • Heart rate
  • Muscle tone
  • Respiration
  • Sounds of breathing

With this data, we can more accurately determine the source of your sleep problems and develop a treatment plan to help you sleep better.

Sleep Center Treatments to Help Improve Your Sleep

We recognize that your sleep problems are special and unique to you. The good news is that with an accurate diagnosis nearly all sleep problems can be treated effectively. We work with you to develop a treatment plan that reflects the factors in your life that are preventing you from getting quality sleep. Some treatments we may prescribe are:

  • A simple device to help you breathe more easily while you sleep
  • Changes in your daily habits or work schedule
  • Medication

Follow-up Care to Help You Maintain a Better Quality of Life

After your diagnosis you receive extensive, long-term care from experienced sleep physicians and staff. We take a strong, continuing interest in your quality of life and help you maintain the effectiveness of your treatment.

Support to Help You Learn Effective Use of a CPAP Machine

CPAP machines can be very effective tools to help you sleep better and enjoy a better quality of life. But learning how to use the CPAP machine correctly can sometimes be a challenge. Our CPAP support group is the only ongoing, sustained support available in the Dayton region.

A qualified nurse leads this group to provide the education and awareness you need to overcome your sleep disorder. We have helped many patients learn to use the CPAP machine successfully, sometimes after years of failure.

The CPAP support group meets the first Thursday of every month from September through May.

Fidelity Health Care (FHC) provides respiratory therapists (RTs) to help you understand how to use this valuable resource. We fit your mask correctly and show you proper use and care of your CPAP or BiPAP machine.
