About 60 million Americans suffer from poor sleep, so it’s no surprise that many people turn to their doctors for help. After all, sleep quality can affect overall health and well-being as well as job performance and personal relationships. The Sleep Disorders Centeris here to help with diagnosis and treatment.
Our Sleep Disorder Center offers comprehensive care to patients suffering from a variety of disorders, such as:
Restless Legs Syndrome
Our program is designed to get to the root of a patient’s sleep troubles by offering advanced diagnostic testing. Proper diagnosis of sleep disorders sometimes requires an overnight sleep study or baseline polysomnogram.
Sleep specialists monitor the patient’s physiology during sleep and assess parameters such as EEG (brain waves), ECG (heart rate), EMG (muscle activity), blood oxygen saturation levels, CO2 levels, snoring and respiratory effort. Other diagnostic tests that the Sleep Disorder Center can perform include:
Split-Night Polysomnogram: used for the initial diagnosis of suspected sleep apnea.
Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT): used in suspected cases on narcolepsy.
Our mission is to provide comprehensive high-quality care. Most patients are referred to our sleep center by their primary care physician. An appointment is made, and the patient is scheduled for an evaluation.
The Comforts of Home
When patients come in for an overnight sleep study, they experience private, hotel-like rooms and breakfast the following morning. We foster comfort as well as accurate testing and diagnosis.
Many sleep problems are preventable and treatable. Some people develop sleep disorders as adults, while many others have had sleep problems for years.
There are strategies to help prevent sleep problems from developing or becoming chronic, as well as many highly effective behavioral and medical interventions. Many who have trouble sleeping think of sleep as a luxury. However, like exercise and proper nutrition, sleep is critical for good health and overall well-being. The good news: there are highly effective treatments for sleep disorders.
