Snoring, insomnia, sleep apnea and restless legs are all examples of sleep
disorders. If you suffer from any of these or have sleep problems that
are interfering with your daily life, let us help you get the good rest you need.
North Oaks Sleep Disorders
North Oaks Sleep Disorders Center provides clinical services and treatments
for patients who may show symptoms of a sleep disorder. The North Oaks
Sleep Disorders Center is accredited by the
American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
To determine if you have a sleep disorder, you may need a sleep study,
or polysomnogram, which measures your bodily functions during sleep. Sleep
studies are designed to diagnose, assess and discuss treatment options
for sleep disorders.
There are two types of sleep studies:
In-lab overnight sleep study: Each one of our four soundproof, hotel-style bedrooms has an adjustable,
queen-sized bed, recliner, and a private, full bathroom. Your bedroom
is furnished with a ceiling fan, night lights, a thermostat for you to
control room air temperature, and a television with a DVD / VCR player.
Depending upon treatment recommendations, some patients may need to stay
an extra day for a Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT).
Home sleep test: If you have high risk factors for obstructive sleep apnea and no other
medical disorders, you may have a sleep study in the comfort of your home.
Your sleep technologist will show you how to hook up the testing device.
Once you are finished, you will return the device to the sleep center
the following day.
