Sleep is a basic biological need that is essential to health, performance, safety and quality of life. Sleep deprivation has serious negative consequences, especially for shift workers. It can also mean an increased risk of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack and stroke.
Sleep difficulties need to be identified and discussed with a physician, then a specific diagnosis can be made and a treatment started. Establishing healthy sleep practices can prevent sleep problems and promote optimal sleep. It is also estimated that 70 percent of all adults in the United States have some level of sleeping problem. A disturbing fact is that the majority of sleep disorders remain undiagnosed and untreated.
Sleep loss and sleep disorders are often an under-recognized health problem in children.

So, whether it is sleep disorders affecting infants, children or adults, our sleep lab can help.
