Sleep Disorders Treatment

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

    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. Our board certified Sleep Disorders physicians and registered Sleep Disorders technologists together provide expert diagnostic services and treatment options.

  • Medication

    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.

  • Surgery

    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.

  • Breathing Devices

    An IU Health physician may deem a breathing device necessary to correct a patient’s sleep disorder. IU Health physicians are experts in 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 masks (CPAP), mandibular advancement devices (MAD), nighttime breathing devices to maintain Positive Airway Pressure (PAP), and other oral appliances that open the airway. Patients have the opportunity to follow-up at regular intervals to ensure needed replacement parts are provided in a timely and proactive manner.

  • 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.
