Testing to measure the electrical activity in your brain and muscles doesn't mean a trip to a large hospital far from western Wake County.  Electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG) testing services, as well as sleep studies, are available on the WakeMed Cary Hospital Campus.

A poor night's sleep can mean more than a bad next day.  For individuals who have pulmonary disorders such as sleep apnea, poor sleep can be life threatening.   Fortunately, testing and treatment for sleep apnea and other pulmonary disorders is available at the WakeMed Cary Hospital Sleep Center.

Our center is located in a separate building adjacent to the WakeMed Cary Hospital campus within the Medical Park of Cary. This location provides a safe and secure environment with easy access and convenient parking.  And the décor will make you think you are in a hotel room instead of a sleep study room. 

We conduct studies seven days a week in our four "bedrooms" that offer:

  • Sophisticated décor with queen-size beds.  We can accommodate mattress firmness preferences.
  • Private restrooms and control over room temperature. Showers are also available within the Sleep Center.
  • Flat screen, high-definition televisions in each room.

During your sleep study, one of our pulmonary professionals will use the latest technology to monitor your brain waves, muscle activity, leg movements, heart rhythms and other body functions.  Testing is completely painless.  Data from your test is collected, scored and interpreted by a sleep specialist, and sent to your referring physician for diagnosis.  Study results are available to physicians within a matter of days.

For information about WakeMed Cary Hospital Sleep Center studies, please call:  919-350-2359.

If you are a physician referring a patient to the Cary Hospital Sleep Center, please call our patient schedule line at 919-570-9715.
