An estimated 70 million Americans suffer from some form of sleep disorder. Medical research clearly links sleep problems to a number of serious health and social problems, including heart attack, stroke and diabetes, as well as increased risk of developing anxiety and depressive disorders.
Many sufferers are completely unaware that problems like insomnia can be treated or that there are serious health risks associated with sleep disorders. Even worse, many who are aware of problems never choose to seek help. Are sleep problems keeping you up at night? Find out by taking this short sleep evaluation.
The Wyoming Sleep Disorders Center at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center is one of the most comprehensive treatment centers in Wyoming. We are one of the few centers to offer in two locations – both evaluation by specially trained physicians and a sleep laboratory where patients can undergo a sleep study. As part of our comprehensive care plans, we continue to monitor the progress of every patient after they receive treatment.
Were you up late last night counting sheep?
If you suffer from sleep deprivation, you don’t need to be reminded of how stressful sleeplessness can be. On the other hand, if you’re sleeping too much, you’re missing out on a lot. Our goal at Cheyenne Regional’s Sleep Lab is to help you get more restful, restorative sleep. We specialize in diagnosing and treating sleep disorders, such as insomnia, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome and sleep apnea.
Sufficient sleep is crucial to your physical, mental and emotional health. Your body needs time to repair tissues from normal wear and tear, and your brain needs rest to help you remember the important things you need to do the next day. If you have trouble sleeping regularly or if your sleep problems come and go, you may benefit from an analysis of your sleeping habit.
