Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders are conditions that stop a person from getting soothing sleep and, as a consequence, can cause daytime drowsiness and dysfunction. The most important sleep disorders are:

Insomnia

Sleep apnea

Restless legs syndrome

Narcolepsy

A sleep study or Polysomnogram (PSG) is a multiple-component examination that automatically transmits and records exact physical actions while you sleep. The sleep education can be done at home (home sleep testing) for select patients. The recordings become data that are examined by a qualified physician to determine whether or not you have a sleep disorder. Medical treatment for sleep disorders might contain any of the following:

Sleeping pills

Melatonin additions

Allergy or cold medicine

Medicines for any underlying health issues
