We hope to increase patient access to diagnostic testing facilities, and enable a wider audience of Southern Californians to stay well informed of their sleep health quality.
Los Alamitos, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
REM Sleep Labs has operated eight accredited sleep diagnostic testing facilities in Southern California dating back to 2001. These span an area of Southern California from Westlake Village in North Los Angeles County, down to San Diego. Its facilities provide state-of-the-art testing and treatment for people suffering from a variety of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. Because sleep labs generally require patients to stay the night for a diagnostic exam such as a polysomnography, all too often, appointments fill up several weeks in advance. With the addition of its Los Alamitos facility, REM Sleep Labs’ goal is to further accommodate scheduling requests, while reducing facility commuting distances of its prospective and current patients living in the area, including surrounding areas of Long Beach and North Orange County.
At REM Sleep Labs, its sleep specialists offer testing for insomnia, sleep apnea, and narcolepsy—among other sleep disorders. As sleep disorders are a growing concern among the adult population in America, REM Sleep Labs hopes to make its services more accessible to an even wider range of patients. “The unfortunate reality is that sleep disorders may pose a serious threat to thousands of Southern California residents,” said Samer Ariss, CEO of REM Sleep Labs. “By building a conveniently located facility in Los Alamitos, we hope to increase patient access to diagnostic testing facilities, and enable a wider audience of Southern Californians to stay well informed of their sleep health quality.”
Early detection of a sleep disorder can be life saving in some circumstances. In fact, studies have shown that over 1.9 million car accidents are due to drowsy driving or fatigue. Not only this, but poor sleeping habits have been tied to diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and heart disease—the number one leading cause of death in America. Most people go undiagnosed with a sleeping condition and many use over-the-counter sleeping medications which, in some cases, may further impair quality sleep. Because of this, REM Sleep Labs wants to make its services available to as many people as possible.
At REM Sleep Labs, patients may participate in a diagnostic exam in which they stay overnight to be monitored during a sleep study. Most people who visit a sleep lab already have difficulty sleeping, so REM Sleep Labs strives to provide comfortable and quiet conditions to help patients achieve as much quality sleep as possible during their sleep study. For people who are not getting enough sleep or feeling fatigued throughout the day, consider joining the thousands of patients who have been referred to REM Sleep Labs by their physician and scheduled an appointment for a diagnostic sleep test. Receiving quality testing and treatment for sleep disorders is now even more accessible at a REM Sleep Labs location in Southern California.
