Sleep Disorders Center
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.
