Sleep Disorders

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 rest you need.

North Oaks Sleep Disorders Center

North Oaks Sleep Disorders Center provides clinical services and treatments for patients who may have symptoms of a sleep disorder. The center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

Sleep Studies

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 determine treatment options for sleep disorders.

There are two types of sleep studies:
  • In-lab overnight sleep study: Each of the sleep disorders center’s four soundproof, hotel-style bedrooms has an adjustable, queen-sized bed, recliner and a private, full bathroom. Each patient’s bedroom is furnished with a television, ceiling fan, night lights and a thermostat so you can control the room’s temperature. Depending upon treatment recommendations, some patients may need to stay an extra day for a multiple sleep latency test, which assesses any excessive daytime sleepiness by measuring how fast you fall asleep during the day.
  • Home sleep test: If you have high risk factors for obstructive sleep apnea and no other medical disorders, you might be able to 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 disorders center the following morning.
