Sleep Disorders Center
Are you tired after a full night’s sleep? Are you sleepy during the day and fall asleep at inappropriate times? The Fannin Regional Sleep Disorders Center may have the answer you need to sleep at night and be more productive during the day.
While sleep disorders can be treated, they often go undiagnosed. If left untreated, sleep disorders can affect your overall health. Not only is insufficient sleep often responsible for motor vehicle and machinery-related accidents, it’s also linked to the development of a broad range of chronic diseases including hypertension, cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke, obesity, diabetes and depression.
There are more than 100 types of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia and restless leg syndrome. We understand that these conditions can significantly affect healthy sleep and this, in turn, impacts your overall health, safety and quality of life.

Get Back to a Good Night’s Rest
The Fannin Regional Sleep Disorders Center can help get you back on track to a good night’s sleep by assessing, diagnosing and treating any sleep disorders that might be affecting you. A sleep specialist works closely with your primary care physician before, during and after diagnosis to ensure the best outcomes helping you lead a more active, healthy and satisfying life. Ask your primary care physician for a referral to the Fannin Regional Sleep Disorders Center and we will take it from there.
At the Center, during the study, trained clinical professionals monitor you while you sleep, checking your breathing patterns and brainwave activity. After the study, your physician will receive a detailed report that will help with the diagnoses and finding the best treatment plan.
The Epworth Sleepiness Scale is widely used in the field of sleep medicine as a subjective measure of a patient’s sleepiness. The test lists eight situations in which you rate your tendency to become sleepy on a scale of 0 (meaning no chance of dozing) to 3 (meaning a high chance of dozing). Print out this page and after you complete the questions add your total score. Your total score is based on a scale of 0 to 24. The scale helps estimates whether you are experiencing excessive sleepiness that could require medical attention.
