Sleep Disorders

If your normal sleep patterns are disturbed, you may have a sleep disorder. Sleep disorders can range in severity, but even one missed night of good quality sleep can affect your ability to function the next day.

There is a lot of press about sleep apnea and the importance of a good night’s sleep, but there are over 100 recognized sleep disorders. Insomnia is the leading sleep disorder and the most difficult to manage and treat. Sleep disorders can be difficult to treat since some can mimic other medical disorders with similar symptoms. Chronic fatigue, daytime sleepiness and restless sleep at night can be related to other conditions like chronic pain, emotional illnesses and physical conditions. Therefore, it is important to have a sleep study with the best team to get the right diagnosis. BayCare Sleep Centers offer the most advanced diagnostic testing equipment with procedures performed by certified sleep technicians.

If you have a sleep disorder, the quality sleep you're seeking can be a reality.

Pediatric Sleep Disorders

Sleep problems are common in children and often related to poor sleep habits or anxiety about falling asleep and staying asleep. Maintaining a consistent bedtime and sleep routine can help. If a child does not willingly go to bed or is waking up frequently during the night, there may be a more serious sleep problem.
