What is a sleep disorder?

There are three main categories of sleep disturbance:  

  1.  The inability to fall asleep.
  2.  The inability to stay asleep.
  3.  The inability to stay awake during the daytime.

Other disorders involve internal body rhythm alterations or are primary disorders of excessive sleepiness. Disorders affecting nighttime sleep are very common. These include obstructive sleep apnea and periodic leg movements.

How are sleep disorders diagnosed? 

To accurately diagnose most sleep disorders, the patient will need to undergo a study called a Polysomnogram. This is an overnight study that is performed in our accredited facility. The study consists of measuring brainwave and muscle tone activity, eye movements, heart rate and rhythm, breathing patterns and oxygen levels. This polysomnogram is attended and monitored by a highly trained technologist.

Benefits of our diagnostic program:

  • State of the art sleep studies.
  • Sleep study results returned within three business days.
