SLEEP DISEASE WE TREAT
At Randolph Pulmonary & Sleep Clinic we treat a wide variety of sleep disorders. Below is a list of the most common disorders we treat.
A potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night's sleep, you might have sleep apnea.
A chronic sleep disorder that causes overwhelming daytime drowsiness.
A sleep disorder in which you have trouble falling and/or staying asleep.
RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME (RLS)
RLS is a condition that causes an uncontrollable urge to move your legs, usually because of an uncomfortable sensation. It typically happens in the evening or nighttime hours when you're sitting or lying down.
SHIFT WORK SLEEP DISORDER (SWSD)
SWSD is a circadian rhythm sleep disorder characterized by insomnia and excessive sleepiness affecting people whose work hours overlap with the typical sleep period.
Also called "night terrors", these episodes are characterized by extreme terror and a temporary inability to attain full consciousness. The person may abruptly exhibit behaviors of fear, panic, confusion, or an apparent desire to escape.
A CPAP titration study is a type of in-lab sleep study used to calibrate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. CPAP is a common treatment used to manage sleep-related breathing disorders including obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea and hypoventilation and hypoxemia.
A HOME SLEEP STUDY
Home Sleep Studies are meant to measure oxygen saturation, heart rate, airflow, movement in your chest and abdomen and it will also record time spent snoring in order to diagnose sleep apnea.
OVERNIGHT PULSE OXIMETRY TESTING
Overnight (nocturnal) home oximetry is a test to monitor and record the level of oxygen in your blood as you sleep through the night at home. With this test, an oxygen sensor is clipped to your finger and connected to a machine called anoximeter.
MAINTENANCE OF WAKEFULNESS TEST
Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT) is used to measure how alert you are during the day. It shows whether or not you are able to stay awake for a defined period of time. This is an indicator of how well you are able to function and remain alert in quiet times of inactivity.
