Lexington Medical Center Opens New Sleep Lab in Northeast Columbia
Having trouble getting a good night’s sleep or staying awake during the day? Lexington Sleep Solutions may have a remedy for you that’s close to home. The Lexington Medical Center physician practice has just opened a third sleep lab in Northeast Columbia. The new sleep lab is located within the Palmetto Family Medicine building at 109 Barton Creek Court, Suite A in Columbia. Lexington Sleep Solutions now has locations in West Columbia, Irmo and Northeast Columbia.
With a sleep study, Lexington Sleep Solutions clinicians can diagnose conditions including hypersomnia, insomnia, narcolepsy, periodic limb movement disorder, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea and snoring.
Lexington Sleep Solutions has accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. To qualify, the practice had to meet all standards for professional health care as designated by AASM. The accreditation process included a detailed inspection of the center’s facilities and staff, an evaluation of testing procedures, and ongoing assessments of physician training.
The Lexington Sleep Solutions physician office is open Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All of the sleep lab locations perform scheduled studies at night and provide scheduled day studies, home sleep test set-ups and actigraphy set-ups during business hours.
During an overnight sleep study, each patient stays in a private bedroom that’s equipped to monitor and record breathing, heart rate, oxygen levels and brain wave activity during sleep. A camera observes sleep throughout the night and provides useful diagnostic information. The sleep study results are analyzed and an appointment will be scheduled to review results and determine what treatment is necessary.
Each patient’s care is supervised by a physician who is board certified in sleep medicine. Lexington Sleep Solutions’ physicians are Clarence Coker, III, MD; Sarkis Derderian, DO; Paul Kirschenfeld, MD; Christopher Marshall, MD; Mohamed Soliman MD and Francis Dayrit, MD, FCCP.
The average adult needs eight hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. Signs that you’re not getting enough sleep include irritability, difficulty staying awake while watching TV or reading, difficulty paying attention at work or in school, memory problems and using caffeine to stay awake.
