Drowsy Driving is Preventable
The National Sleep Foundation holds Drowsy Driving Prevention Week (DDPW) each year the week following the end of Daylight Saving Time.
The goal of this annual campaign is to reduce the number of drivers who drive while sleep deprived. Drowsy driving is responsible for more than 6,400 U.S. deaths annually. Fall-asleep crashes are often caused by voluntarily not getting the sleep you need.
NSF encourages everyone to prioritize sleep and drive when alert and refreshed.

The Importance of Sleep
A good night’s sleep is like a tune-up for your entire body. During a night’s rest, your metabolism is regulated, memories and information are retained, and your immune system receives a boost. Not getting a good, peaceful night of rest keeps you from performing at your best. If you’re struggling with sleep issues, Wellfirst Sleep Diagnostics can help you find the solution you need.
Our Diagnostic Solutions
If a doctor suggests you undergo a sleep study, or polysomnography, you may be wondering what is involved in this test and what to expect. Sleep studies help diagnose sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, periodic limb movement disorder, narcolepsy, restless legs syndrome, insomnia, and nighttime behaviors like sleepwalking and REM sleep behavior disorder. Often these disorders cannot be identified with a normal office visit—your doctor needs to gather more conclusive evidence while you're asleep.
A sleep study is a non-invasive, overnight exam that allows doctors to monitor you while you sleep to see what's happening in your brain and body. For this test, you will come to our sleep lab that is set up for overnight stays.
