Sleep Disorders

Tired of sleepless nights? You’re not alone. An estimated 70 million Americans suffer from a chronic sleep disorder.

The Gundersen Sleep Center is staffed by professionals who are experienced in diagnosing and treating sleep related disorders including:

In order to diagnose the cause of sleep problems, a Polysomnogram (PSG) or a Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) may be recommended. These two sleep studies record body functions while the patient sleeps. These tests help diagnose the cause of symptoms such as:

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Snoring
  • Observed pauses in breathing at night
  • Waking up with gasping or chocking sensations
  • Problems functioning at work from fatigue/drowsiness
  • Recent car accident from drowsiness
  • Frequent waking up at night for no reason
  • Inability to fall back asleep once awake at night
  • Decrease in quality of life due to fatigue/sleepiness

To determine the cause of sleep problems, you may need to have a sleep study. Pictured is one of our sleep study rooms.The sleep disorder specialists at Gundersen have been leaders in the field. In 1986, they became the first fully accredited sleep center in Wisconsin and have maintained accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) every year since. The AASM is a national accrediting body for sleep disorders centers and labs.

The Sleep Center offers 10 multi-function sleep study suites. The rooms allow sleep specialists to offer day and night sleep studies. Patients will also enjoy a hotel-like atmosphere with comforting colors and amenities.

To understand why people suffer from sleep disorders, it’s important to understand how the sleep cycle works. Learn more about the sleep cycle.

The Sleep Lab & EEG are services of Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center.
