Why Suffer Needlessly?

Sleep disorders can make it difficult to stay awake, fall asleep, or stay asleep. Most sleep problems are not life-threaten ing but some can result in serious medical conditions such as high blood pressure, memory loss, morning head aches, cardiac problems, excessive sleepiness during the day, and even stroke.
Trinity's Sleep Center is located on the 5th floor of Trinity Hospital - St. Joseph's, and features a small apartment-like bedroom. In another room is an array of electronic devices where technicians monitor patients with video, sound, and other instruments in order to study their sleep habits.
The problems technicians observe and record are varied. The data they gather is used by physicians to diagnosis sleep-related problems such as sleep apnea, and prescribe appropriate treatments.
Patients must have a physician's referral in order to participate in a sleep study. Most insurance covers sleep testing and treatment if the individual is referred. Trinity Medical Group Neurologist Bahram Kordlar is the Sleep Center Medical Director. Both daytime and evening sleep technologists staff the Sleep Center.

Common Sleep Disorders

Sleep Apnea

A potentially life-threatening breathing disorder characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep. Most patients with sleep apnea snore loudly and are very sleepy during the day. Click or tap here for more information on sleep apnea.

Narcolepsy

A chronic sleep disorder characterized by excessive or overwhelming daytime tiredness, even after an adequate amount of sleep. Other symptoms include the sudden loss of strength in the muscles, sleep paralysis, and hallucinations occurring while falling asleep or upon waking up.

Restless Leg Syndrome

A sleep disorder in which a person experiences unpleasant sensations in the legs described as creeping, crawling, tingling, pulling, or painful. These sensations usually occur in the calf area but may be felt anywhere from the thigh to the ankle. Restless legs can make it very difficult to fall asleep.

Periodic Limb Movements in Sleep

A disorder that is characterized by repetitive movements, most typically in the lower limbs, that occur about every 20–40 seconds. The limb movements can fragment sleep and cause severe daytime sleepiness.

Parasomnias

Sleep disorders characterized by sudden arousal during various stages of sleep. Parasomnias include night terrors, sleep walking and sleep talking.

If you think you have any of these, ask your physician for a referral, or call the Trinity Health Sleep Center for an appointment with a sleep specialist: (701) 857-2348
