Easton Hospital opened a Sleep Disorders Center in a brand new facility at 41 Corporate Drive in Easton. The building is about one mile from the hospital.
The hospital previously operated its sleep clinic out of the third floor of the hospital. The new center began seeing patients June 18.
The center will be open every day for nighttime studies (8:45 p.m. to 6:45 a.m.) and Monday—Friday for daytime studies (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).The center uses non-invasive equipment accompanied by a sleep technician who monitors the patient's heart rate, respiratory system, muscle activity, oxygen levels, brain activity, sleep movement and body position throughout the test. The study results allow the sleep physician to evaluate, diagnose the patient's condition, and work with a patient's primary physician to help determine the appropriate course of treatment.
