When getting rest is anything but easy
Experts estimate that 70 million Americans have sleep problems that interfere with their daily activities. About half of these people have an undiagnosed sleep disorder and should be tested.
Sleep apnea is responsible for 50,000 premature and preventable deaths every year. It's also the leading cause of heart failure, hypertension, and enlarged hearts and strokes – all of which can improve dramatically with the right treatment.
Other common conditions are insomnia and restless legs syndrome. Regardless of your specific sleep disorder, our specialists can provide you with a comprehensive care program that includes an evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.
Does your child have a sleep disorder?
Sleep disorders are increasingly common among children. In fact, 25 percent of children diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder may also have sleep apnea.
Poor-quality sleep leads to excessive sleepiness during the day, learning difficulties, behavioral problems, obesity, heart problems and more.
Children also suffer from insomnia, narcolepsy, grinding teeth, sleep walking, sleep talking and nightmares. With proper treatment, children can get enough restful sleep to lead healthy, productive lives.
