Sleep Center

We understand that good health requires a high-quality, uninterrupted night’s sleep. However, about 42 million Americans have sleep disorders that can reduce the quality of their sleep. The chances of having a sleep disorder are increased if you have a history of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure or are overweight. We can help you feel better. One night at a time.

Our Sleep Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and offers both in-lab sleep testing and a home sleeping test. During testing, we’ll make you comfortable while using the latest technology to diagnose any conditions. We have eight private testing rooms that resemble hotel rooms for your privacy and comfort. In-lab studies are performed seven days and nights per week.

Common Sleep Disorders
Insomnia

The inability to fall asleep or return to sleep after waking up

Sleep Apnea

Breathing stops for several seconds during sleep, causing you to wake momentarily and gasp for air; usually accompanied by snoring

Snoring

Loud, hoarse, harsh breathing sound that occurs during sleep and may disrupt you or your partner’s sleep

Restless Leg Syndrome and Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD)

Sensations in the legs that can keep you from falling asleep or getting back to sleep

Parasomnias

Walking or talking in your sleep, night terrors and rapid eye movement behavior disorders

Narcolepsy

Falling asleep unexpectedly during “wakeful” times of the day

Nocturnal Seizures

Brain seizures that occur during sleep

Diagnostics
Overnight In-Lab Sleep Study for Adults

This comprehensive study is performed in the Sleep Center, where you stay overnight in our private, hotel-like room. This test is designed to diagnose a range of sleep issues, including mild to severe sleep breathing disorders, sleep movement disorders, parasomnias and other sleep problems that occur in specific stages of sleep or body positions. This study is performed by a Registered Sleep Technologist under the direction of a Sleep Physician.

Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT)

An abbreviated test used in the home to diagnose qualifying adult patients suspected of severe sleep obstructive apnea. First, you pick up the device at the Sleep Center, where you are taught how to use the device by a Registered Sleep Technician. Then you sleep with it on at home, and return it to the center the following morning for analysis.

Pediatric In-Lab Sleep Study

Similar to our overnight in-lab sleep study for adults, this specialized test for children diagnoses common conditions such as sleepwalking, nocturnal seizures, night terrors and sleep-disordered breathing. Parents stay with their child in an adjoining sleep room with access to their child during the sleep study.

We Will Find the Best Treatment for You

Depending on your sleep study results, we may recommend medication, scheduled naps, positional sleep therapy, sleep behavioral therapy, a dental appliance, positive airway pressure or surgery. The results will be sent to the referring physician. Consultations with our sleep specialists are also available.

For more information about our services or to schedule an appointment with one of our Sleep Specialists, call 847-618-3700.

For those patients unable to tolerate CPAP therapy to treat your sleep apnea, we have great news for you!  We now perform Inspire Therapy, which is a surgical treatment proven successful to treat sleep apnea for select patients. Call us for information about scheduling a consult with our Inspire Therapy surgeon.
