Diagnosis & Treatment for Sleep Disorders

Do you suffer from a dry mouth or sore throat when you wake up? Do you have a headache in the morning? Do you snore? These may be symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, the most common sleep-related breathing disorder.

At Thibodaux Regional Health System, our Sleep Disorders Center performs at-home sleep apnea testing, an overnight test conducted outside of the hospital or sleep lab setting. At-home testing takes place in the comfort of your own home, making it more convenient and less costly.
