Sleep Disorders

The Sleep Disorders Center can help diagnose various disorders including:

Sleep Apnea
Characterized by pauses of breathing during sleep. It is often associated with loud snoring, snorting and gasping for breath. Sleep apnea can result in daytime sleepiness, depression and cardiovascular problems.
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
Sufferers may struggle to stay awake during the day and experience reduced productivity at school or work, memory or concentration problems.
Narcolepsy
This results in a frequent and, at times, overwhelming urge to sleep. Narcolepsy is frequently associated with brief periods of sudden transient muscle weakness in response to an unexpected emotion.
Restless Leg Syndrome and Periodic Limb Movement Disorder
Restless leg syndrome causes uncomfortable sensations in the legs near sleep time, sometimes described as a "creepy-crawly" feeling. Periodic limb movement disorder causes the arms and legs to move or jerk involuntarily during sleep.
