Diagnosing and Treating Patients with Sleep Disorders

As a fully accredited sleep disorders center through the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), we are staffed with specially trained physicians and technologists, who strive to provide the highest quality of care to all our patients, and to increase the awareness and promote treatment of sleep disorders in our community.

Sleep Study Process

Setting Up an Appointment
A referral is required to be seen at UnityPoint Health – Fort Dodge Sleep Center. After receiving a referral from your doctor, our team will reach out to set up an appointment. Patients will receive a questionnaire and information packet to complete prior to your evaluation.
What to Expect

On the scheduled night of your test, you will be prepared for the painless test. Sensors are applied to your scalp, face, chin, chest and legs. These sensors are comfortable and are attached to equipment that monitors your brain waves, breathing, heart rate and muscle activity.

After your monitoring equipment is applied, you can relax in our home-like setting. The spacious private room includes a comfortable bed with a television and private restroom.

While you sleep, a Polysomnography Technologist will observe and record your sleep patterns and the information being transmitted by the attached sensors. We will wake you the next morning in plenty of time to return home or prepare for work.

Diagnosis and Treatment

One of our sleep medicine physicians will exam your results and will forward the findings to your primary care physician who will discuss the results of your study with you. Depending on your diagnosis, you may spend a second night at the sleep disorders center to better determine your level of treatment.

Cost of a Sleep Study
The reimbursement from insurance companies vary. Pre-authorization may be required by your insurance company.
