Baptist Hospital treats a large variety of illnesses, diseases and health concerns along with their Sleep Diagnostic Center. There are one third of Americans estimated to be suffering from sleep disorders, such as trouble with staying asleep, not sleeping through the night or problems falling asleep. These disorders need to be treated immediately to avoid problems such as the inability to finish daily tasks, becoming disoriented and chronic fatigue. Sleep Apneas Syndrome causes patients to stop and start breathing several times while asleep and could happen several hundred times a night lasting several seconds. This will cause sore throat, becoming drowsy in the daytime, heavy snoring and morning headaches. This disorder may result in irregular heartbeat, impotence, lung disease, high blood pressure and heart failure. The specialists at Baptist Hospital take pride in working together to diagnose and treat these problems to insure the patient with a better quality of life.
