Sleep Disorders

Return to healthy, restorative sleep with help from the experts at our Sleep Disorders Centers 

For adults and children who experience insomnia, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome or other ongoing sleep problems, Indiana University Health Sleep Disorders Centers specialize in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders.  

Our board-registered physicians and technologists perform outpatient sleep studies at night and during the day in a comfortable atmosphere, using advanced technology to quickly and accurately diagnose your sleep problem.  

IU Health is able to treat a wide range of conditions that may be disrupting your sleep.

Sleep is essential to restore and rejuvenate your body and mind. People who struggle to sleep will quickly see their mental and physical wellbeing start to suffer. 

Because we know how much you want and need to sleep better, IU Health offers comprehensive sleep testing and treatments to diagnose your sleep problem and help you return to a healthy, restful sleep. We’ll work with you to decide which treatment will be most beneficial, depending on your needs and the nature of your sleep disorder. 

Our Services

Sleep Testing in Clinic 

At one of our several locations statewide, we monitor adult and pediatric patients overnight to observe their sleep patterns. Board certified sleep disorder physicians and registered technologists provide skilled diagnostic services and treatment options for each patient. 

IU Health also offers the Immediate Follow-up Treat (IFT) process, part of the Sleep Series Program, where qualified patients can be tested, diagnosed and treated in one visit.

Home Sleep Testing 

We can offer home-based sleep testing if you display symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). 

Medication

Patients diagnosed with central sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome can benefit from medications to correct nervous system conditions that interrupt your sleep. Depending on your diagnosis, an IU Health physician may prescribe over the counter and/or prescription medication.

Surgery

If you have certain conditions such as a blocked airway or a severe nasal obstruction, we may suggest surgery to correct and eliminate the physical abnormalities that contribute to your sleep disorder.

Breathing Devices

A breathing device may be necessary if you are diagnosed with sleep apnea. Our Sleep Apnea Education Centers provide a wide variety of devices and masks and work with you 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.

If you aren’t compatible with PAP devices, you may be referred for an ENT evaluation and be considered for a hypoglossal nerve implant therapy (Inspire  treatment). This stimulator is appropriate if you have moderate obstructive sleep apnea, are not significantly overweight, are over the age of 22 years, and can’t use or get benefit from CPAP.

Support Groups and Education

We want to ensure the treatment of your sleep disorder is successful. We offer detailed supplementary education on proper sleep hygiene and habits. We may also refer you to a sleep support group to connect you with others diagnosed with a similar sleep disorder or undergoing similar treatment.
