Poteau, OKLAHOMA - The sleep Center at Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center specializes in helping patients who may have sleep disorders. The center is designed to be as comfortable as possible for patients who stay overnight so a sleep technician can monitor their sleep habits and record information for physicians to review for follow up treatment and recommendations.

 

Good sleep is important for good health. According to the National Sleep Foundation, 65% of Americans report that they do not get enough sleep (most adults need 6 to 8 hours). Sleep disorders are not just annoyances; they are serious health problems because they cause the oxygen content of the blood to drop to dangerously low levels, depriving the body and vital organs of oxygen.

 

These negative effects can lead to poor job productivity and are contributing factors in motor vehicle accidents, weight gain, heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, colds and flu, just to name a few.

 

Why is good sleep so important?

Think of your body like a factory that performs several vital functions. As you drift off to sleep, your body begins its night-shift work:
* Healing damaged cells.
* Boosting your immune system.
* Recovering from the day’s activities.
* Recharging your heart and cardiovascular system for the next day.

 

The staff at EOMC know the value of sleeping well, and we’ve all experienced the feeling of being refreshed after a good night’s sleep-and the feeling of fatigue after a poor night’s sleep. But even though we know this, in our busy society, many of us are not getting the quality sleep needed to truly receive the health benefits of sleep.

 

The sleep Center at Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center specializes in helping patients who may have sleep disorders. The center is designed to be as comfortable as possible for patients who stay overnight so a sleep technician can monitor their sleep habits and record information for physicians to review for follow up treatment and recommendations.
