Symptoms, Conditions and Diagnosis
Do you have sleep disordered breathing?
Many Americans suffer from some type of sleep disorder. Your chances of having a sleep disorder may also increase if you have a history of diabetes, high blood pressure or are overweight.
Common sleep disorders include:
- Sleep apnea - loud snoring followed by a breathless pause ending with a snort or gasp.
- Restless leg syndrome - sensations in the legs that disturb sleep or keep you from falling asleep.
- Periodic limb movement - jerking or moving your legs during sleep.
- Narcolepsy – difficulty staying awake or falling asleep unexpectedly during “wakeful” times of the day.
- Parasomnias – walking or talking in your sleep.
- Insomnia – the inability to fall asleep.
- Snoring – loud obstructed breathing that often interferes with proper sleep patterns
Comprehensive assessments and testing
Based on your physician referral and initial self-assessment, you'll begin sleep testing at our facility monitored by a team of physicians and sleep technologists.
Testing is done on an outpatient basis all week, including weekends
Diagnostic procedures can include:
- Sleep study with nine channels of monitoring of sleep apnea
- Overnight tests (polysomnograms)
- Full polysomnogram, which includes EEG channels for sleep staging and arousal identification
- Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) tests are scheduled at patient convenience seven nights a week
A member of our Sleep Center medical staff will review your sleep study findings, along with your medical history. The results and diagnosis will then be sent to your physician.
