While a good night’s sleep is vital for optimal health, growth, and functioning, more than 20% of adults fail to get enough sleep. Many times, inadequate sleep is the result of a sleep disorder, like obstructive sleep apnea, which can interrupt normal sleep patterns and compromise your health.
At Northwest Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine, our comprehensive sleep medicine services include testing, diagnostics, patient education, help obtaining CPAP or other sleep equipment, and regular follow-ups to ensure that our patients have the equipment they need, understand how to use it, and are utilizing their equipment to effectively treat their sleep disorder.
While there are over 80 classified sleep disorders, some of the most common ones we diagnose and treat include:
- Sleep apnea
- Restless leg syndrome
- Sleep deprivation
- Parasomnias (nightmares, sleepwalking)
- Periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD)
- REM behavior disorder
- Daytime tiredness
- Difficulty sleeping
Our advanced sleep lab makes it possible for certified sleep technicians to recreate numerous conditions that affect your breathing and/or sleep over the course of a night. Some of the tests we perform to diagnose sleep disorders include:
- Baseline polysomnography and CPAP titration studies
- Multiple sleep latency testing
- Maintenance of wakefulness testing
