Treatment for Sleep Disorders

Phoebe Sleep Disorder Center uses the latest technology and equipment to diagnose and treat various sleep disorders.

Treatment Often Begins with a Sleep Study

If your sleep physician decided further evaluation is required, you will be scheduled for a sleep study -- a non-invasive, painless diagnostic test performed to determine if you have a sleep disorder.

Sleep studies are performed to evaluate snoring, breathing, arousals, movements and certain behaviors during sleep. The sleep technologist will gently apply sensors on your head, face and body to closely monitor and record your brain waves, movements, muscle activity, breathing patterns, blood oxygen levels and heart rate and rhythm during sleep.

After the sleep study is completed, the sleep physician will review the recording in order to establish a diagnosis and treatment plan to be reviewed with you in a follow-up visit.
