Sleep Disorders Center

Sleep Disorders Center

Founded in the 1980s, The CMC Sleep Disorders Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and its singular focus on patient care has allowed us to grow from a single sleep lab into a leading provider of sleep and neurophysiology services.
The Sleep Disorders Center network of healthcare providers are board certified in sleep medicine, neurology, and pulmonology. Our team offers an interdisciplinary program with a coordinated approach of a variety of sleep disorders and related conditions.

OUR MISSION

The Sleep Disorders Center is a healthcare organization committed to the patients. We are dedicated to having a positive impact on patient suffering from sleep disorders and more generally, the communities we serve by:

  • Delivering the highest quality of patient care.
  • Providing our expertise to healthcare institutions and physicians to assist in successful and efficient implementation of excellence in sleep services.
  • Furthering the field of sleep medicine by actively engaging in education and research to facilitate the early detection, diagnosis, and development of innovative treatment options for patients suffering from sleep disorders.

Services Provided

Staffed by technologists who are credentialed by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists, The Sleep Disorders Center assesses each patient through various measures that may include:

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG) – measures heart rhythm
  • Electroencephalography (EEG) – measures global neural activity
  • Electromyography (EMG) – measures muscle activity and limb movement
  • Electrooculogram (EOG) – measures eye movement
  • Piezoelectric belt – measures respiratory effort
  • Pulse oximetry – measures oxygen saturation
  • Thermistor or pressure transducer – measures nasal and/or oral airflow

CMC Sleep Disorders Center now hosts an A.W.A.K.E. Sleep Apnea Support Group.

Sleep Evaluation

A personal sleep evaluation is the first step to sleeping better. A sleep evaluation begins with an office visit with one of our sleep specialists. During this visit, an extensive health history, physical exam and interview will be conducted. If possible, bring your bed partner along for the interview as they can answer questions about your sleep patterns that many times you cannot.

Sleep Study

All of this information will help the sleep specialist piece together the next plan of action, which many times will require an overnight sleep study. A sleep study is called a Polysomnogram or PSG. These tests are performed in our sleep center in a quiet, peaceful hotel-like room where we can monitor your brain waves, heart activity, breathing, chest movements, leg, arm, abdomen, and eye movements, oxygen levels and more.
There is no pain involved during a sleep study and every effort to maintain your normal sleep routing is made during your stay.

Read more instructions for the day of your study.

Next Steps

After your sleep study, you will be scheduled to follow up with the sleep specialists to review the results of your study. During this time, a customized treatment plan will be developed. Treatment plans vary and could include a course of action for weight loss, oral appliance, Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP) therapy, or in some cases, surgery to relieve the symptoms preventing you from getting the sleep you need for a healthy life.
