Sleep Services

When you have trouble sleeping, the problem might be temporary, or it could be something more serious. If you consistently have trouble sleeping, you may suffer from a sleep disorder that can only be diagnosed through a sleep study. We have a full time staff at Mahaska Health Partnership dedicated to providing sleep studies and assessments during your regular sleeping hours.

Common sleep disorders include:
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Narcolepsy
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • REM behavior disorder
  • Sleepwalking

What is a sleep study?

During a sleep study, you’ll stay the night on the MHP campus in one of our comfortable sleep suites with attached bathrooms and homelike amenities. Your sleep technologist will use non-invasive monitors to record your heart rate, respiratory system, muscle activity, oxygen levels, brain activity, sleep movement and body position throughout the night.

Symptoms of a sleep disorder

Many times, it’s not the sufferer who notices they have a sleep disorder, but their partner who notices disturbances during their sleep. If you, or your partner, experience these symptoms, a sleep study may be able to help.
