A poor night's sleep can mean more than a bad next day and for individuals who have pulmonary disorders, such as sleep apnea, poor sleep can be life threatening. Fortunately, sleep studies that involve testing, such as Electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG), and treatment are available at the WakeMed Cary Hospital Sleep Centers.

 

We have two Sleep Center locations to serve our sleep disorder patients.

Our 200 Ashville Avenue location is in a separate building adjacent to the WakeMed Cary Hospital campus within the Medical Park of Cary. This location provides a safe and secure environment with easy access and convenient parking. And the décor will make you think you are in a hotel room instead of a sleep study room. Our four "bedrooms" offer:

  • Sophisticated décor with queen-size beds. We can accommodate mattress firmness preferences.
  • Private restrooms and control over room temperature. Showers are also available within the Sleep Center.
  • Flat screen, high-definition televisions in each room.

Our second Cary location is at 160 MacGregor Pines Drive within the office building that is home to one of our WakeMed Bariatric Surgery & Medical Weight Loss practices. Sleep Study patients will find easy access and convenient parking with testing services offered designed specifically for the patient based upon the patient’s symptoms.

During your sleep study, one of our pulmonary professionals will use the latest technology to monitor your brain waves, muscle activity, leg movements, heart rhythms and other body functions. Testing is completely painless. Data from your test is collected, scored and interpreted by a sleep specialist, and sent to your referring physician for recommended therapy. Study results are available to physicians within a matter of days.

To schedule an appointment for a sleep study at either of our WakeMed Cary Hospital Sleep Centers, please call: 919-782-7240
