Some of the more common disorders we deal with at our Center are:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Approximately 5% of the general population suffers from this chronic disorder of nighttime breathing. The patient or bed partner may notice loud snoring, pauses in breathing, or un-refreshing sleep. Over the short term, this condition causes daytime sleepiness or fatigue. Over the long term, this disorder can contribute to high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, heart failure and diabetes. This disorder affects men and women of all ages, as well as children. This can be readily treated by our physicians.
Restless Leg Syndrome/Periodic Limb Movement of Sleep
Approximately 15% of the general population suffers from this chronic condition of discomfort in the legs and thighs. This syndrome is characterized by a ‘creepy crawly’ sensation in the legs at night that causes an uncontrollable urge to move. This disorder can continue throughout the night, causing un-restful, fragmented sleep.
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
This condition may be caused by many disorders including obstructive sleep apnea, periodic limb movement of sleep as well as chronic insufficient sleep and narcolepsy. Part of this investigation may include a sleep study.
Chronic insomnia can occur in up to 15% of the general population. Treatment can involve behavioral and pharmacologic treatment and possible sleep testing.
Capital Sleep Specialists can provide many services to you directly as a patient, or as part of the care that your primary care physician provides. We can do overnight polysomnograms (formal sleep testing in our sleep rooms), pediatric sleep studies, overnight CPAP titrations (formal treatment of obstructive sleep apnea). We also offer immediate fitting and delivery of CPAP equipment with most insurance plans.
