BHS Sleep Center
Medical Assistance for Sleep Disorders
The multidisciplinary team at the BHS Sleep Center provides services and
compassionate care to improve sleep patterns and quality of life.
Our Sleep Center brings together medical experts with experience in all
facets of sleep disorders, including physicians specializing in cardiopulmonary
disease, psychiatry and neurology. By collaborating across disciplines,
we gain deeper insights into the causes of sleep disorders and are able
to offer a more comprehensive, and more effective, range of treatments.
10% to 30% of adults have a hard time getting the six to eight hours of
sleep required each night to restore the body’s natural energy.
The BHS Sleep Center’s multidisciplinary team exists to help those
suffering from the wide range of sleep disorder symptoms, including:
- Sleep Apnea
- Inability to fall asleep
- Loud snoring
- Frequent waking up in the middle of the night
- Excessive daytime sleeping
- Partial arousal from sleep
- Morning headaches
- Daytime irritability
- Poor concentration or memory
Our usual starting point in treating sleep disorders is a polysomnogram,
either in our recently renovated Sleep Center located in the hospital
or with an in-home sleep study unit in the comfort of your own home. This
painless procedure monitors brain waves, heartbeat, eye movements, leg
movements, breathing and oxygen levels through sensors connected to the
body. The results of this test are then used to design an individual treatment
plan to return your body to a natural sleeping schedule, restoring your
energy, concentration and quality of life.
You can be referred to the BHS Sleep Center by any physician who suspects
you may be suffering from a sleep disorder.
