Specialized Sleep Services

Consultations

Meet with one of our specialists to discuss your sleep problem(s) and next steps.

Compliance Monitoring and Follow-up

For patients with obstructive sleep apnea, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is one of the main treatments. We are able to monitor a patient’s progress, check for therapeutic compliance, and prescribe changes if needed, by viewing the CPAP statistics.

Polysomnography (PSG)

A type of sleep study that is conducted overnight in a sleep facility. Sensors are placed on the body to measure different bodily functions, such as breathing, blood oxygen saturation, respiratory effort, body positioning, and brain activity. Sleep technicians monitor the patient throughout the night.

Home Sleep Test (HST)

A type of sleep study that is conducted overnight at a patient’s home with the use of a portable sleep device that measures different bodily functions, but is not as detailed as a PSG. After the device is worn, it is brought back to the sleep specialist to read and interpret the results.

Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) Nap

A daytime study for patients who are going to begin PAP therapy, but are anxious about starting the therapy, have claustrophobia, or are having difficulty with the PAP therapy for their sleep disorder. The sleep technicians will work directly with the patient to help them relax and become more comfortable with PAP therapy.
