Comprehensive Diagnostic Services

Our sleep medicine specialists utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and techniques to evaluate and diagnose various sleep disorders. These may include:

  • Polysomnography (PSG): This comprehensive sleep study evaluates brain activity, eye movement, muscle activity, heart rhythm, and respiratory patterns during sleep.
  • Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT): Used to diagnose excessive daytime sleepiness and disorders such as narcolepsy.
  • Home Sleep Apnea Testing (HSAT): A portable diagnostic tool used to assess breathing patterns, oxygen levels, and sleep disruptions in the comfort of your own home.

Treatment Options Tailored to Your Needs

After a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis, our sleep medicine specialists will create an individualized treatment plan designed to address your specific sleep issues. Treatment options may include:

  • Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP): A common treatment for obstructive sleep apnea, CPAP involves wearing a mask during sleep to deliver a constant stream of pressurized air to keep the airway open.
  • Oral Appliances: This non-invasive option involves wearing a custom-made dental device to reposition the jaw and tongue, keeping the airway open.
  • Behavioral Therapy: Our specialists may recommend lifestyle modifications, sleep hygiene practices, and relaxation techniques to improve sleep quality.
