With over 100 different recognized sleep disorders caused by stress, change, or health issues, and some 40 million Americans suffering from a sleep disorder, it’s easy to see just why this topic is so important.
And as you can probably guess, sleep disorders can keep you awake, but they can also keep you from resting well when you do sleep. So if you wake up and don’t feel rested in the morning, or you know you’re not getting enough rest to restore your body for a new day, then you need answers. And you need solutions because your body needs to sleep well again.
Your career, relationships, and health can be negatively affected when the quality of your sleep suffers. And if left untreated, sleep disorders can become quite serious.
The most common sleep disorders are:
Fortunately, most of these can be treated by the highly trained healthcare professionals of CHI St. Joseph Health’s Sleep Center.
CHI St. Joseph Health Sleep Center doctors and staff are highly skilled and specifically trained to conduct comprehensive sleep studies that accurately diagnose and treat sleep disorders. We have been accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). To receive a five-year accreditation, a sleep center must meet or exceed all standards for professional health care as designated by the AASM. The accreditation process involves detailed inspection of a center’s facility and staff, including an evaluation of testing procedures, patient contacts, and physician training.
Our doctors include pulmonologists (lung & breathing experts), pyschiatrics, and others who have expertise and experience in treating people with sleep disorders. Plus, at CHI St. Joseph Health, we also have a Registered polysomnographer (sleep studies specialist) always on staff, and our Medical Director is Board Certified in sleep treatment.
CHI St. Joseph Health Sleep Center doctors may work with other doctors who are specialists in Neurology (brain and nervous system conditions), Ear, Nose and Throat conditions, or are registered sleep technologists, respiratory therapists, or others who can help accurately diagnose and effectively treat your condition.
Our Sleep Center specialists carefully orchestrate your sleep study, from the initial examination, to treatment, therapy and follow-up care.
The CHI St. Joseph Health Sleep Center offers the latest treatment methods and technology. Featuring private bedroom-like sleep study areas complete with televisions, internet access, private bathrooms and quality queen-size beds instead of hospital beds, our Sleep Center was created to feel as much like home as possible.
Let us help you sleep well, and receive the highest quality of care during testing and treatment possible.
