Sleep Disorders Center
From time to time, most of us have experienced a restless night of sleep. But for the 70 million Americans suffering from sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, functioning on little sleep is the norm rather than the exception.
The Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Sleep Disorders Center specializes in the diagnoses and treatment of sleep disorders. The most common sleep disorder is sleep apnea, a condition where the soft tissue at the back of the throat collapses, blocking airflow during sleep. Other sleep disorders include narcolepsy and chronic insomnia.
In addition, several health conditions such as restless leg syndrome, Fibromyalgia, chronic pain, heartburn, COPD, asthma or nasal allergies all can be underlying causes of disruptive sleep.
IU Health Ball Memorial Sleep Disorders Center has recently been awarded a five-year accreditation by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) for both in-lab sleep testing and out of center sleep testing. These standards represent that IU Health Ball Memorial Sleep Disorders Center has undergone precise review of expertise in the following areas:
- Standards of Practice
- Procedures and Policies
- Patient Safety
- Patient Follow-up
- Physician and Staff Training.
