Sleep Study Services


Lavaca Medical Center offers sleep studies within the facility.

Polysomnography refers to a method of evaluating multiple physiologic variables. This term has become associated with overnight evaluations involving sleep state determination. Computerized polysomnographic equipment is used to collect and store digital physiologic data. Registered Polysomnographic Technologists set up the patients and monitor all night recordings. Reports are generated and data from these recordings is reviewed by a Registered Polysomnographic Technologist. After this review, the report is given to the appointed medical director. The medical director reviews the record for technical competency and sleep-related pathology, performs an interpretation, and consults with the referring physician.

Physician Referral is required to obtain a sleep study.
