Patients suffering from sleep disorders such as snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, and restless legs might benefit from a sleep study. Carson Valley Sleep Diagnostics (across the street from Carson Valley Medical Center) offers sleep studies performed in a comfortable, private room (pictured below). The room is specially-equipped for monitoring your breathing, brain waves, heart activity, sleep patterns, and eye & muscle movements during the night. The healthcare team at Carson Valley Sleep Diagnostics - operated by Dr. Charles Held, Pulmonologist, can analyze the information obtained during your sleep study and will recommend treatments that might include restricting the use of certain drugs such as alcohol, caffeine and sleeping pills; special equipment for improving sleep; a weight loss program; or surgical intervention.
