Sleep Disorders

New Jersey Neurosciences

Difficulty sleeping is a common problem in the U.S. and one with numerous potential causes. Our neurologists are fellowship-trained and board-certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine. We take a comprehensive approach to treating sleep disorders, performing a thorough assessment of each patient’s condition to determine the source of the difficulty.

The Sleep Study Program

We use sophisticated diagnostic equipment that is safe for both adults and children. Diagnosing a sleep disorder typically requires patients to participate in an overnight study where we can observe brain waves and sleep habits. This is done in a comfortable, home-like environment designed to help patients feel relaxed.

Sleep disorder testing:

  • Polysomnograms – An overnight sleep study where patients are attached to noninvasive monitors that measure brain waves, breathing, and muscle movement. The test is pain free and patients are able to move around freely
  • Pediatric sleep tests – We offer one of the only sleep studies in New Jersey designed for children. This process is similar to a standard polysomnogram, except that a parent or guardian stays with the child.
  • CPAP Triation – a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device is a small mask worn over the nose to treat patients with sleep apnea, a condition that makes it difficult to breathe while sleeping. You may be asked to wear one of these during your sleep test.
  • PAP Nap – This is a hands-on training course that takes place before your sleep study where our staff instructs you on how to use a CPAP.
  • Multiple sleep latency test – This test is done after the initial sleep test. You will be asked to take a series of naps throughout the day and make note of your energy levels.
  • Maintenance of wakefulness testing – This test is often required for truckers and other individuals who need high levels of alertness for their job. Throughout the day you will be given several tests to evaluate your alertness while awake.
  • Polysomnography with full EEG monitoringThis is a more comprehensive form of sleep studies wherein patients are monitored with an EEG to determine whether or not they are suffering seizures in their sleep.

Getting Your Sleep Back on Track

Sleep disorders are most often treated with lifestyle changes. Once a doctor has determined the cause of the problem, they can help you develop a plan to get your sleep schedule back in order. Medication and diet changes are often involved.

Trying to recover from a sleep disorder on your own can be difficult, especially if you don’t know what’s causing it. Our skilled sleep care team knows what kinds of behaviors prevent and aid in getting a full-nights rest. We’re ready to help you put an end to this problem.
