Frye Neurodiagnostics Laboratory
Frye’s Neurodiagnostics Laboratory features the FRMC Sleep Disorders Center, where we can play an important role in detecting, evaluating and treating a wide range of sleep abnormalities and sleep related disorders. We offer six-hour video monitoring and can accommodate night shift workers by performing sleep studies during the day.
Other services offered include:
*Nerve Conduction Testing
The Neurodiagnostics Laboratory/Sleep Disorders Center can be reached at 828-315-3862/Sleep Center 3863.
Within the Sleep Center we perform night time polysomnography with Cpap/Bipap titrations, oxygen titration, capnography, and nocturnal seizure/REM behavioral disoders with expanded EEG monitoring. We have the capabilities to record from the neonate to the bariatric patients that are unable to get sleep studies at facilities that have limitations on their sleep beds. We alsooffer a wide range of daytime testing.
Polysomngraphy for the shift worker
MSLT/MWT for patients that have normal sleep studies but continue to complain of excessive daytime somnulence and narcolepsy.
For the patients that have difficulty with CPAP/Bipap titrations we offer a desensitation program that enables to come to the center and try different mask and if they are able low level pressures of the machine. This enbles the patient that may have a history of claustrophobia to try cpap before their scheduled appointment.
Frye offers four fluoroscopy rooms that have the capabilities to perform routine exams (i.e. Upper GI’s, Barium Studies, etc.) and contrasted procedures (i.e. myelography, arthrography, joint/facet injections, hysterosalpingograms). In addition, six routine procedure rooms enable routine diagnostic procedures (i.e. chest, abdomen, extremities, etc.)
We have one dedicated trauma room within the department and the capabilities to perform trauma procedures in the Emergency Department. We also have one tomography room to perform IVP’s and associated tomography.
