Sleep Clinic

While it’s normal to have trouble falling or staying asleep occasionally, it’s a problem if you experience it most nights or every night. Our sleep specialists at Wabash General Hospital diagnose and treat your problem so you can get the rest you need.

Conditions Treated


Excessive daytime sleepiness or prolonged sleep at night are the primary symptoms of hypersomnia, and those who have it may sleep 10 hours at a time or more. They and are often excessively drowsy during the daytime. Hypersomnia may result from certain cancers, clinical depression, or have no known cause.


This very common sleep disorder makes it more difficult to fall and/or stay asleep. Those with insomnia may feel unrefreshed when they wake up in the morning and tired and irritable during the daytime.


Parasomnias occur when unintended events or actions happen during sleep, while falling asleep, or while waking up. Common parasomnias include sleepwalking, sleep talking, bedwetting, and night terrors.

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)

People with this neurological condition experience uncontrollable urges to move their legs, “creepy-crawly” feelings, and leg pain or discomfort. Episodes of restless leg syndrome often occur at night, which can make getting to sleep more difficult.

Sleep Apnea

This common, potentially life-threatening sleep disorder that most commonly occurs when a person's airway collapses or becomes blocked (this is called obstructive sleep apnea). People with sleep apnea experience pauses in their breathing or have shallow breathing while they are asleep.


Occurs when the soft tissue surrounding the upper airway vibrates as you breathe. It is quite common with about half of all adults snoring occasionally. Men snore more than women, and people who are overweight are more prone to snoring. While snoring can disrupt your bed partner's sleep, it can also cause frequent awakenings at night and daytime sleepiness for the person who snores.

Services Offered

ApneaLink Home Sleep Screening

This is a non-invasive, pain-free screening you do by yourself at home, in your own bed. A small medical device is worn during sleep. It records breathing patterns, oxygen levels, and heart rate. We will train you how to use the device before you take it home and our doctors will review a treatment plan with you.
Wabash General Hospital also provides at-home diagnostic studies for those qualifying patients. Home sleep screenings are at free, but these tests are not diagnostic, and only suggestive of a possible sleep disorder.


Commonly called a sleep study, this non-invasive, pain-free procedure usually requires spending the night in a sleep room/sleep center. During a polysomnogram, a sleep technologist records multiple biological functions during sleep, such as brainwave activity, eye movement, muscle tone, heart rhythm, and breathing. These recordings are made via electrodes and monitors placed on the head, chest, and legs.

After a full night’s sleep is recorded, the data is analyzed by a technologist and presented to a doctor for interpretation. Depending on the doctor’s orders, you may receive positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP/BPAP) and/or oxygen therapy during the night. Depending on the specific type of sleep study ordered, you may also stay after your overnight sleep study for further testing (MSLT-Multiple Sleep Latency Test).
