Snoring, daytime sleepiness, mood changes - does this sound like you? Let the BMH Sleep Center determine whether a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea or insomnia is causing your fatigue and other symptoms.
Quality sleep is vital to good health and well-being. Research shows that not getting enough sleep places a tremendous strain on your body and overall health. Chronic lack of sleep, or getting poor quality sleep, increases the risk of developing certain disorders, including high blood pressure (hypertension), cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, depression, dementia, and cancer. More importantly, insufficient sleep can ultimately affect life expectancy, reduce quality of life and productivity, and shorten your lifespan.
The BMH Sleep Center uses advanced technology. A sleep study at the BMH Sleep Center provides the information necessary for the diagnosis and treatment of various sleep disorders including Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Excessive Daytime Sleepiness, Insomnia, Narcolepsy, Shift Work Problems, Parasomnias, Restless Leg Syndrome, and Periodic Limb Movements.
Getting Evaluated for a Sleep Disorder
To get evaluated for a sleep disorder, you may be asked to stay overnight. The overnight evaluation helps our clinicians diagnose a sleep disorder and recommend a treatment plan. During the noninvasive overnight stay, clinicians monitor heart rate, breathing, sleep patterns, muscle movement, brain waves, and oxygen levels to uncover potentially dangerous sleep disorders.
If you suspect that you have a sleep-related disorder, please contact your primary care provider or specialist and ask them to refer you for a sleep study at our Center.
