Indiana University Health Sleep Disorders Centers specialize in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. The IU Health Sleep Disorders Center, accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, offers a wide range of studies on an outpatient basis with patient convenience and comfort as a priority. We perform studies at night and during the day in a comfortable atmosphere, administered by board-registered physicians and technologists.
IU Health is the only system in Indiana to offer the Immediate Follow-up Treat (IFT) process, a part of the Sleep Series Program, where qualified patients can be tested, diagnosed and treated in one visit.
Sleep restores our bodies and minds. Without it, we suffer. Indiana University Health offers comprehensive sleep testing and treatments that can help you return to a healthy, restful sleep. Because each person is different and each sleep disorder is unique to that person, your physician will discuss which treatment will be most beneficial.

Sleep Testing in Clinic
With locations statewide, adult and pediatric patients are monitored and sleep patterns are observed overnight by our board certified sleep disorders physicians and registered technologists. Together, our experts provide skilled diagnostic services and treatment options for each patient. All staff members have an average of 10 years of professional medical experience and are certified by the Board of Registered Technologists and/or the American Association of Respiratory Care.
Home Sleep Testing
In addition to in-clinic sleep studies, some patients who display symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may find home sleep studies more convenient to their lifestyle. Not all patients are candidates for home sleep studies, but are useful in the diagnosis of only OSA.
Patients diagnosed with central sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome can benefit from medications to correct nervous system conditions that may interrupt the patient’s sleep. Depending on the patient’s diagnosis, an IU Health physician may prescribe over the counter and/or prescription medication.
Sometimes surgery is a treatment option for patients with certain sleep disorders. An IU Health physician may suggest surgery as a way to correct and eliminate physical abnormalities such as a blocked airway or a severe nasal obstruction in patients with sleep disorders.
An IU Health physician may deem a breathing device necessary to correct a patient’s sleep disorder. IU Health Sleep Apnea Education Centers provide a wide variety of devices and masks and work with patients to ensure comfort and proper fit of each.
Some of the most common breathing devices to treat sleep disorder are continuous positive airway pressure devices (CPAP), mandibular advancement devices (MAD), and other oral appliances that open the airway.
For patients not compatible with PAP devices, they may be referred for an ENT evaluation and be considered for a hypoglossal nerve implant therapy (Inspire treatment). This stimulator is for patients who have moderate obstructive sleep apnea, who are not significantly overweight, over the age of 22 years, and are unable to use or get benefit from CPAP.
Support Groups and Education
IU Health physicians work with our patients to ensure the selected treatment is a success. Therefore IU Health offers detailed supplementary education on proper sleep hygiene and habits. An IU Health physician may also refer their patient to a sleep support group in an effort to connect the patient with others diagnosed with a similar sleep disorder or undergoing similar treatment.
