We are Nationally Accredited

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) offers accreditation as a demonstration that a sleep center has met all standards set by the AASM such as employing skilled and qualified staff, creating a clean and comfortable environment, developing a quality assurance plan, and adhering to evidence-based practice parameters. An accredited sleep disorders program is a significant resource to the medical community and to the public. Accreditation by the AASM assures quality patient care through comprehensive clinical evaluation and treatment.

Office Consultations

The first step toward better sleep is an office consultation with one of our sleep specialists. At this appointment, we will explore your symptoms, sleep and medical history, and other factors that may be contributing to your sleep disturbances.

Sleep Study

A comprehensive sleep study, or polysomnogram, is the next step for many of our patients. Polysomnograms are usually performed in a sleep laboratory. The lab resembles a bedroom. Patients' sleeping patterns are monitored during sleep through the use of masks and other specialized equipment that can be connected to the body using a special adhesive. For many patients, a sleep study is essential for an accurate diagnosis of the sleep disorder and to determine the correct treatment. A sleep study is essential for an accurate diagnosis of sleep disorders and to determine the correct course of treatment.

Before Your Sleep Study

  • Schedule an office consultation with your sleep physician – the Sleep Disorders Center staff will schedule a sleep study for you and inform you of your appointment time
  • Some patients may need to schedule a pre-sleep study visit to the Sleep Disorders Center for a mask fitting
  • If you are scheduled for a sleep study, you can save time by printing and filling out the Sleep Questionnaire for New Patients to bring with you.

What Do I Bring to the Sleep Study?

We want you to be comfortable, so bring what you normally wear while you sleep or bring comfortable, loose fitting clothes, as well as pillows, pillowcases, and any personal sleep items.

Can I Have a Visitor During the Study?

Children may have one parent present during the sleep study. Adults may not have visitors unless specified by the physician.

Treatment During a Sleep Study

Some patients may require treatment during the sleep study, such as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, or CPAP. CPAP involves fitting a soft mask over the patient's nose and mouth. The mask is connected to a special air compressor that provides a steady flow of air to keep the airway open during sleep. The air pressure is adjusted to provide the best results for the patient.

Discharge and Follow Up

For many patients, the use of a CPAP machine is a prescription that provides the lifelong benefit of significantly better sleep. Please follow this prescription and any other specific medical orders given by your physician.

CPAP equipment may be obtained from a Durable Medical Equipment (DME) company. Please consult the yellow pages or your insurance company for DME companies in your area.

Regular follow-up appointments with your sleep physician are necessary to ensure that your treatment is producing the best results. Also, the Sleep Disorders Center offers weekly classes on CPAP therapy, which can help you get the best results from your treatment.
