Overview

Do you have trouble getting a good night's sleep or staying awake during the day? Like a balanced diet and regular exercise, restful sleep is vital to good health.

An insufficient amount of quality sleep can even result in severe mental and physical health problems, including obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular problems, depression and diabetes.

  • Obstructive sleep apnea

  • Problems faced by long haul drivers

Sleep labs

Located within the Sieg Neuroscience Center, Mount Nittany Medical Center's sleep lab is open seven nights a week for diagnostic testing. Using state-of-the-art equipment in a comfortable setting, our physicians and specially trained technicians work with you to diagnose and treat your sleep disorder to get you back to sleeping well.

We will soon be consolidating our labs into one new, larger lab to better accommodate current and future needs.


Sleep lab amenities

We understand that spending the night away from home for a sleep study can be challenging, so we've done our best to make your stay comfortable. Double beds are in private rooms, monitored by lab technicians throughout the night. While there is sleep equipment in the room to monitor patients, we try to maintain as much privacy as possible.

How to prepare and what to expect

You will arrive at the sleep lab at 9:00 pm and will likely be done by 5:30 am.

You may bring whatever you'd like to make yourself comfortable: a snack, pajamas, a book, etc.

We provide a snack and a flat-panel television.

In the morning, you will be provided a snack, coffee and shower facilities.

Test results will be sent to your physician within a few days.
