Sleep Studies

“Making the appointment for my sleep study was a family affair,” said freshman State Senator Mark Kolterman with a wide grin. “Heck, my snoring didn’t bother me a bit; it just kept everyone else awake!”

Results from a sleep study conducted at Memorial Hospital showed that he had quit breathing over 50 times throughout the night as a result of sleep apnea. “There was no question that I needed a c-pap machine to open up my airways. That was ten years ago and I’ve used it faithfully ever since.”

“I chose to have my sleep study here at Memorial Hospital and they did an excellent job,” Kolterman said. “It’s important that we don’t take our local health care services for granted,” he adds. “I’ve traveled many parts of the state and seen many communities who are lacking in health care services. We are very fortunate to have excellent medical care right here, in our own community.”

Memorial Hospital’s construction project calls for the relocation of its sleep study laboratory to a new area with two specially-equipped bedrooms, expanding the service from one to two studies per night.
