Sleep Lab

Sleeping is a vital part of the day that provides energy and adequate functioning. The Sleep Lab at AMITA Health St. Mary's Hospital is dedicated to detecting irregularities during sleep. Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) affects five percent of the population. OSAS occurs when the sleep-related throat narrowing is so great that breathing becomes difficult. Loud snoring is the hallmark indication of this potentially life-threatening disorder, although not everyone who snores has OSAS. If left untreated, it can cause excessive daytime sleepiness, hypertension, menstrual irregularities in women, depression and other problems. If you experience heavy snoring, an inability to fall asleep, frequent morning headaches, impotence, or other problematic symptoms, make an appointment with the Sleep Lab. Inadequate sleep may be the cause, and early detection is important. Sleeps are offered every day of the week except for Saturdays. We will, however, work with the patient's schedule and conduct sleeps on Saturdays when necessary. Recording time lasts six hours, so many patients prefer an overnight stay. In-home sleep tests are also available depending on insurance coverage and specific qualifications. Contact AMITA Health St. Mary's Hospital Sleep Lab at 815-937-2296 for more information.

Wound Healing Services

Nearly five million Americans suffer with chronic open sores as a result of diabetes, pressure ulcers, or circulatory problems.

Our specialist will screen your wound for appropriateness for Wound Healing Services; you may access this care by self referral, physician referral, or other health care provider referral. Your primary care provider or the referring provider will be kept informed of your progress. Don't suffer, call us today...If you or someone you know suffers from the pain of non-healing wounds, take a stand and call us today. Because a lifetime of suffering isn't something you should have to endure.
