TriStar Horizon Medical Center September 27, 2016

Dickson, Tenn. (September 23, 2016)  An estimated forty million people in the United States suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders, and many sufferers go undiagnosed and untreated, simply because they do not realize they have a problem or because they think that nothing can be done for them. 

TriStar Horizon is excited to be opening a 2-bed, state-of-the-art sleep center, designed with patient comfort in mind. Each hotel-like suite includes:

  • Full-sized bed with mattress that adjusts to patient’s desired level of firmness
  • Private bath and walk-in shower
  • Flat screen television with cable 
  • Wireless internet 
  • Accommodations for bariatric, handicapped, and special needs patients (suite that includes caregiver or parent accommodation)
Sleep is vital to a person’s overall well-being. Research indicates that an adequate amount of quality sleep is essential for promoting good health. A sleep disorder is a condition that disturbs the normal pattern of sleep. A sleep study is used to diagnose and treat sleep disorders.

In most cases, proper evaluation and treatment can help patients return to normal sleeping patterns, eliminating the stress, anxiety and other difficulties associated with sleep disorders. The Sleep Center at TriStar Horizon provides testing for the diagnosis and treatment of various sleep disorders including:

  • Sleep Apnea
  • Narcolepsy
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Parasomnias

“People with sleep apnea can often feel very sleepy during the day and their concentration and daytime performance suffer,” said Dr. Mohammad Alsoub, medical director of TriStar Horizon’s Sleep Center and certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine. The consequences of sleep apnea range from annoying to life-threatening.
