The Sleep Disorders Center at Del Sol Medical Center
Our team of specialists knows that sleep disorders can disrupt all areas of your life and impact your overall health. We offer individualized care for patients who have difficulty falling or staying asleep using the latest medical advancements.
Types of sleep disorders we treat
We treat a wide range of sleep disorders, including:
- Bedwetting — Bedwetting is nighttime incontinence that occurs at an age when controlling your bladder is to be expected.
- Breathing problems — We can diagnose sleep issues related to breathing such as hypoventilation and obstructive sleep apnea.
- Insomnia — This common sleep issue can present in multiple ways: trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep and waking too early and not falling back asleep.
- Narcolepsy — A rare neurological condition, narcolepsy causes people to fall asleep suddenly at inopportune times.
- Nightmares and night terrors — These sleep disturbances can affect both children and adults.
- Nocturnal myoclonus — Also called periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD), this disorder occurs when your legs move suddenly and involuntarily during sleep.
- Sleep apnea and snoring — Sleep apnea is when a person's breathing suddenly stops and starts during sleep. Excessive snoring can be an early warning sign of sleep apnea.
- Sleep pattern problems — Sleep pattern issues can happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes a person can only fall asleep and then awaken late (delayed sleep phase syndrome), and sometimes vice versa (advanced sleep phase syndrome).
- Sleep talking — Also called somniloquy, this condition occurs when people talk during sleep.
- Sleepwalking — This condition is also called somnambulism and it happens when people get up and walk around while still sleeping.
Pediatric sleep disorders
Our center is also a leader in the treatment of pediatric sleep disorders. Children frequently experience disruptive sleep issues, and we know it can be hard to see your child struggle to get a good night's rest. Our sleep specialists work with you and your child using the latest diagnostic and treatment options so everyone can get a good night's sleep.
Home sleep apnea testing
One of the sleep disorder treatments we offer is a home sleep apnea test. Sleep apnea is a serious condition, so proper diagnosis is key to getting the medical care you need. Our test allows you to sleep at home wearing special equipment that collects information about your breathing patterns during sleep. During the test, we will look for symptoms, in particular, any interruptions in breathing during sleep.
