Sleep Studies

 

Special tests that monitor your breathing, vital signs and brainwaves while you sleep. They are instrumental in accurately diagnosing sleep disorders.

Home Sleep Study (HST)

For those who may not initially qualify for an in-lab study, we have portable units for at-home sleep testing (HST).  This test is not as comprehensive as an in-lab sleep study and many times requires additional follow up testing.


Treatment Therapies

If you are diagnosed with a sleep disorder, we have the latest treatment therapies available to help you gain your best sleep.

Postive Airway Pressure (PAP) Therapies

There are several forms of positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy.  The most common is CPAP.  CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. CPAP therapy involves wearing a special mask during sleep that facilitates normal breathing for sleep apnea patients.  All forms of PAP therapy keep your airway open as you sleep.

PAP Therapy is the most common treatment for Obstructive or Central Sleep Apnea.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)

This approved method for treating insomnia without sleeping pills is aimed at changing your sleep habits, scheduling factors and misconceptions about sleep and insomnia that are prolonging your sleep difficulties. This therapy is extremely effective for patients who are committed to overcoming insomnia and willing to take active roles in therapy. Participants in the recent National Institute of Health’s state-of-the science meeting on insomnia concluded that CBT-I is a safe, effective means of managing chronic insomnia and its effects.


Other Non-CPAP Alternatives

Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral appliances are popular alternatives for sleep apnea and snoring patients. These are special mouthpieces, sometimes referred to as snore guards that fit comfortably in your mouth during sleep and keep your airway open.

Orofacial myology – This is also known as myofunctional therapy and consists of neuromuscular re-education or re-patterning of oral and facial muscles.

Surgical options – When conservative measures fail to resolve sleep apnea, surgery can often correct the soft tissues that are collapsing your airway and causing your breathing difficulties.
