Sumner Sleep Center works with all types of sleeping disorders, including:
- Sleep Apnea
A cessation of breathing for at least 10 seconds, which may include gasping, gagging, choking or snorting. This can result in excessive daytime fatigue or sleepiness.
Chronic inability to sleep soundly through the night; four or more awakenings per night; taking longer than 30 minutes to fall back asleep after awakening; or a combination of all of three.
A syndrome of sudden, uncontrollable desire to sleep. This can also involve sudden loss of muscle control, inability to move or involuntary loss of consciousness.
- Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)/Periodic Limb Movement (PLM)
RLS occurs when a person experiences unpleasant sensations while awake that cause an irresistible urge to move the legs or arms. PLM occurs most often when a person is asleep and is unconscious of the movements.
Movements occurring during sleep, such as sleep walking, night terrors, bed-wetting and grinding teeth.
The Sumner Sleep Center offers different types of tests to diagnose sleeping disorders:
- Nocturnal Polysomnography (NPSG-Sleep Study)
- Nocturnal Polysomnography-Split (NPSG with Cpap if needed)
- Nocturnal Polysomnography Titration (Cpap titration)
