Sleep Medicine

Astria Health's Board Certified Sleep Medicine specialist offers treatment for:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Central sleep apnea
  • Complex sleep apnea syndrome

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If left untreated, sleep disorders like sleep apnea can have a tremendous effect on cardiovascular health and increase your risk for having other medical problems like stroke, diabetes and depression. You may have sleep apnea if you snore loudly or if you feel tired even after a full night's sleep. If you are having problems sleeping, your care provider may refer you to the sleep center or one of our other providers specializing in sleep medicine.

Sleep Disorder Center at Astria Sunnyside Hospital

To determine a diagnosis and the best treatment plan for sleep-related problems, your doctor may suggest a home sleep study or a study at our Sleep Disorder Center. A sleep study is a noninvasive, overnight exam that monitors your sleep stages to identify possible disruptions in the pattern of your sleep. The study will also measure eye movements, oxygen levels in your blood, heart and breathing rates, snoring, and body movements. On the evening of your scheduled sleep study, you will arrive at the Sleep Center and be given your own private room for the night.

Your hotel-like suite is designed to include all the comforts of home. A relaxing and comfortable environment will provide you with a good night's sleep. Each room includes a queen bed with high-quality linens, a private restroom, a shower and a flat-screen television.

The Sleep Disorders Center is conveniently located on the Astria Sunnyside Hospital campus and is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
