How We Can Help
Chronic Sleep Deprivation Treatment Information
Our physicians use the following services to increase the quality of your sleep.
- Education. Our physicians teach you about lifestyle changes and good sleep hygiene practices that allow you to rest easier. A healthy diet and regular exercise lead to better quality sleep while creating a relaxing bedroom environment can help you fall asleep faster. We help you find ways to improve your sleep habits to eliminate sleep deprivation.
- Diagnosis of sleep conditions. IU Health Sleep Disorders physicians uncover the causes behind your sleep deprivation through comprehensive testing. We offer both daytime and nighttime sleep studies to monitor your breathing, brain activity and muscle movements that provide the information we need to diagnose a sleep disorder. For both types of tests, you are attached to an electroencephalogram (EEG) via small metal discs called electrodes. The EEG monitors your brain activity so we can map out your sleeping patterns and spot any abnormalities.
- Referral to specialists. If your sleep deprivation is caused by another condition, such as kidney disease or diabetes, our physicians will refer you to other Indiana University Health experts for treatment. Other conditions such as lung diseases, arthritis and heart failure may also cause sleep deprivation.
