Sleep Disorders

We specialize in the treatment of many sleep disorders in patients age 13 and up, including:

Sleep Apnea/Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a disorder of interrupted breathing during sleep. It is usually associated with snoring, choking or gasping, and excessive daytime sleepiness.

Hypoventilation Disorders

Hypoventilation disorders are disorders of shallow breathing during sleep resulting in low oxygen or high carbon dioxide levels. It can be associated with obesity, COPD, and certain neuromuscular conditions such as ALS.

Parasomnias

Parasomnias are unusual behaviors that occurring during the sleep period such as sleep walking, night terrors, confessional arousal, sleep eating disorder, REM behavior disorder, and nightmare disorder.

Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is neurologic sleep disorder of excessive daytime sleepiness and in some cases is accompanied by the involuntary loss of muscle control know as cataplexy. Cataplexy can occur with emotional stimulus such as laughter, stress, fear, or anger.

Insomnia

Insomnia is a persistent inability to initial and/or maintain sleep. Insomnia can be a result of many factors including poor sleep habits, diet, stress, medical conditions, behavioral and mental health disorders, and even certain medications.

Pulmonary Diseases

Along with sleep disorders, we also treat pulmonary diseases. Listed here are just a few of the respiratory disorders we treat in adult patients age 18 and up.

Asthma

Asthma is a disease of the lungs in which the airways become blocked or narrowed causing breathing difficulty.

COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a long-term lung disease that refers to both chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
