An overnight sleep test typically begins with check in at the scheduled time at Freeman Sleep Center. After check-in, a sleep technologist will introduce himself/herself to you, and then he or she will take you to your assigned room, which looks more like a hotel room than a typical hospital room.
The Epworth Sleepiness Scale can help you determine your level of daytime sleepiness. A score of 10 or more is considered sleepy. A score of 18 or more is very sleepy. If you score 10 or more on this test, you should consider whether you are getting proper rest. If you experience daytime sleepiness, you may benefit from a consultation with Freeman Sleep Center in Joplin, Missouri.
At Freeman, we believe in continued education for our team of physicians and the general public. Utilize our resources to advance your career and fine-tune your craft.
Prior to 1995, exposure therapy was primarily conducted using either imaginal exposure (thinking about the fears) or in-vivo exposure (facing your fears in the real world). For many types of anxiety disorders, in-vivo exposure is considered the gold standard for treatment – however, it can be both time consuming and costly. For this reason, Ozark Center, in consultation with Virtually Better Inc. (VBI), provides virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET), a technology-enabled treatment approach.
