New Sleep Study

Franklin Medical Center is pleased to announce the opening of its new sleep study lab. Our community now has access to state-of-the-art sleep monitoring in a comfortable atmosphere designed to reflect the comforts of home. Any patient answering yes to at least three of the following questions should consider asking their physician for a sleep study review:

  • I have been told I snore
  • I have been told that I stop breathing or hold my breath when I sleep, although I have no memory of this
  • I am always sleepy during the day even when I have slept throughout the night. (“Wish I had more energy”)
  • I have high blood pressure
  • I have been told that I sleep restlessly. I am always “tossing and turning.”
  • I tend to sweat excessively during the night
  • I frequently awaken with headaches in the morning
  • I tend to fall asleep during inappropriate times
  • Others have noticed a change in my personality (often grumpy/irritable)
  • I am overweight or have recently gained weight
  • I suddenly wake up gasping for breath at times

Franklin Medical Center would like to thank Ivan Smith Furniture and Wal-Mart of Winnsboro for their generous assistance in helping to furnish our sleep lab. If you feel like you may have a sleep disorder, please take this brief self-scoring questionnaire by following the link below.
