An estimated 123 million American suffer from sleep-related problems. Nearly
two thirds of all adults experience insufficient sleep three or more times per week.
Campbell County Health's Sleep Center is designed to monitor and evaluate
people during sleep, providing information for physicians to diagnose
and treat sleeping disorders.
The Sleep Center is
accredited by the
American Academy of Sleep medicine (AASM) and is one of only three accredited programs in the state of Wyoming.
The center is specially designed for sleep studies and provides a full
range of diagnostic and treatment for more than 70 different sleep disorders.
The most commonly treated sleep disorders are: snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia,
restless legs syndrome, and shift work disorder. Left untreated, sleep
disorders can lead to serious health conditions like weight gain, high
blood pressure, cardiac problems, diabetes, and increased risk of motor
vehicle accidents.While patients sleep in quiet, comfortable rooms, our
technologists observe and record sleep patterns, heart and respiratory
activity, and body movements at an adjacent monitoring room. Most sleep
disorders can be treated effectively once they have been accurately diagnosed.
Types of sleep disorders
The Sleep Center provides quality patient care by utilizing the National
Patient Safety Goals.
The program is under the direction of
Dr. Peter Fort who is Board Certified in Pulmonology and Sleep Medicine. The Sleep Center
is staffed by Registered Polysomnographic Technician and Respiratory Therapists,
who assist the doctor in making a diagnosis.
CCMH's Sleep Center is the only four-bed clinic in a 100-mile radius,
which accepts insurance and Medicare patients. It is open six nights per
week for patient convenience, and operated according to
American Academy of Sleep Medicine standards. The clinic performs an average of 60 sleep studies per month.
