Our Specialized Services:  

  • Pediatric: Studies show that children with sleep disorders are more likely to have behavioral issues, and that treatment can lead to significant improvement in school performance.  
  • Pregnancy: The physical, psychological, and hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can affect sleeping habits, and even produce snoring, fatigue, and sleep apnea.
  • Pre-Operative Evaluation: Sleep testing observes breathing patterns and checks for possible airway-related problems that may affect surgery and recovery outcomes.  
  • Heart: Research demonstrates patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, including hypertension. With this condition, people stop breathing repeatedly during sleep because the airway collapses and prevents air from getting into the lungs. These pauses  put strain on the heart and can lead to serious conditions. 

CPAP—The Gold Standard in Treatment for Sleep Apnea
People who have sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during sleep because the airway collapses and prevents air from getting into the lungs. These pauses can occur quite often and for varying lengths of time. But each one puts strain on the heart and can lead to serious conditions. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the most common treatment. It provides a continuous stream of air pressure to keep your airway open. This may be administered during your sleep study, along with careful attention to measures of sleep through video monitoring.
