Sleep Disorder Services
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 White Memorial Hospital 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.
Sleep Medicine services at IU Health White Memorial Hospital include:
- Sleep Testing for sleep disorders for patients over the age of 12
- Maintenance of Wakefulness testing (MWT)
- Multiple sleep latencies (MSLT)
- Positive airway pressure titrations
- Studies for CDL licenses
- Variable hours for testing
