sleeplabAll sleep tests are performed in one of our spacious, boutique hotel-like rooms. Registered and certified sleep technologists monitor your sleep with video cameras and wired sensors throughout the night and send your results to our team of physicians that specialize in sleep disorders. Once your testing is complete, your physician will diagnose your condition and make recommendations to getting you back to a good night’s sleep.

Sleep tests are scheduled around your normal bedtime on weekday nights. Your room is fully equipped with a bathroom so that you may get ready for work the next day, if necessary.

Our goal is to get you back to a good night’s sleep. Our multidisciplinary team works together to treat adults for all types of sleep disorders. Give us a call today.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a common and potentially life-threatening sleep disorder condition. If you suspect that you have sleep apnea, we recommend you be evaluated by a physician. If you experience three or more of the following, you may have sleep apnea:

  • Have trouble falling asleep
  • Have difficulty staying asleep
  • Snoring
  • Sleep is not refreshing
  • Stop breathing while asleep
  • Restlessly tossing and turning
  • Sweat excessively while sleeping
  • Uncomfortable feeling in the legs
  • Are sleepy or tired during the day
  • Awaken with headaches
  • Sleep at inappropriate times
  • Fall asleep while watching TV
  • Have trouble staying awake while driving
  • Have high blood pressure
  • Overweight

Talk to your physician about a sleep study if you have three or more symptoms. If ordered by a referring physician, our board-certified adult sleep physicians can follow you in our clinic, order the equipment, and manage your sleep disorder.

According to one study, four percent of the population between the ages of 18 to 65 years has been diagnosed with sleep apnea. A good night’s sleep can help protect you from:

  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Depression

If an adult is on more than one medication for high blood pressure (hypertension), or if they have diabetes that is difficult to control, they may have a sleep disorder contributing to their underlying disease. Hypertension and diabetes have been linked to sleep apnea.

Other sleep disorders may include:

  • Periodic limb movement disorder
  • Parasomnias
  • Narcolepsy
