The sleep lab at Wake Forest Baptist Health-Lexington Medical Center offers the latest diagnostics used to identify a wide range of sleep disorders in a convenient, comfortable setting. Patients check-in during the evening and spend the night in a hotel-type room in a quiet part of the hospital. Special electrodes are attached to the patient and provide continuous monitoring of sleep patterns and disruptions throughout the night. A specially trained sleep lab technologist closely monitors the patient throughout the study with sleep patterns analyzed by board-certified sleep specialists.
Pediatric Sleep Studies
Lexington Medical Center is the only provider of pediatric sleep studies in Davidson County.
The specialists at the pediatric sleep lab can evaluate a variety of sleep-related conditions in infants and children including insomnia, narcolepsy, seasonal affective disorder and common problems such as sleepwalking, nightmares, restless leg syndrome, nocturnal seizures and sleep apnea.
