At Indiana University Health, our physicians diagnose problems that affect sleep quality and find solutions to improve sleep. We treat sleep disorders including insomnia, sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome (RLS).
At the Indiana University Health White Memorial Hospital Sleep Disorders Center, we specialize in the diagnoses and treatment of sleep disorders. Our sleep medicine doctors create a comprehensive treatment plan to address the causes behind your sleep problems and teach you proper sleep hygiene. Depending on your needs, you may be referred to a specialist who can help with an underlying medical condition or see a sleep psychologist.
Our sleep experts conduct advanced research into sleep disorders through our partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine. This research gives you access to leading edge care and treatment so you can rest easy.
IU Health White Memorial Hospital Sleep Disorders services include:
- Sleep testing for sleep disorders for patients over age 10
- Maintenance of Wakefulness Testing (MWT)
- Multiple Sleep Latency Testing (MSLT)
- Positive airway pressure titrations
- Studies for Commercial Driver Licenses (CDL)
- Variable hours for testing
A sleep specialist interprets each study to determine the underlying disorders and what additional testing may be indicated.
Most sleep disorders can be effectively treated once they have been accurately diagnosed. After a sleep study, our board certified American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) physicians will review your test results. Their recommendations are then forwarded to your physician to determine the best sleep disorder treatment for you.
Sleep disorder treatments may include:
- Behavioral modification
- Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
- Education on sleep hygiene
- Lifestyle modifications
- Modified sleeping positions
- Oral appliances
- Oxygen therapy
- Surgery to eliminate physical abnormalities
- Weight loss
- A.W.A.K.E. (Alert, Well, And Keeping Energetic) support group
Because each person is different and each sleep disorder is unique, your physician will discuss with you which treatment options will be most beneficial.
