The Sleep Center of State of Franklin Healthcare Associates (SoFHA) is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and offers comprehensive testing for an array of sleep disorders. Our goal is to increase awareness about the importance and potential serious consequences of untreated sleep apnea and other sleep-related disorders. Many patients’ lives are improved significantly through the process of learning about, diagnosing, and managing these disorders.

Above all else, our primary goal is to provide quality patient care.

Undergoing a Sleep Test

SoFHA sleep tests take place in a comfortable, homelike setting using state-of-the-art equipment. A painless process, the studies are conducted by a licensed sleep technologist and involve attaching electrodes to the patient that record the amount and quality of the patient’s sleep. The recording techniques are noninvasive, and all electrodes are applied to the surface of the skin. During the study, various types of data are being collected, such as measurements of brain waves, heart rate, oxygen level, muscle activity, breathing pattern and other activities. Test results are reviewed by sleep physicians certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine (ABSM).

  • Standard polysomnogram (95810)
  • PAP titration (95811)
  • Multiple sleep latency test (95805)
