Sleep disorder is a medical disorder of sleep patterns in a person. Some sleep disorders are very serious and can interfere with normal physical, mental social and emotional functioning of a person. Disruptions in sleep can be caused by a variety of issues from teeth grinding to night terrors. Other disorders that are associated with sleep disorder are sleepwalking, sleep terror, and bed wetting. Management of sleep disturbances that are secondary to mental, medical, or substance abuse disorders should focus on the underlying conditions.
Cadabam’s Hospitals offers a sleep lab, which is a specialized center that conducts sleep studies. These studies are not for research or scientific purposes, however, they are diagnostic or therapeutic studies. The hospital uses polysomnography to diagnose common sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia, hypersomnia and restless legs syndrome. In addition to this, one may also undergo multiple sleep latency testing or maintenance of wakefulness testing at the sleep lab. In addition, the person may be treated for a sleep disorder and monitored.
The patient will sleep in a bedroom that may appear like any other, with the exception of discreet equipment that monitors and records the person’s sleep. This monitoring includes audio and visual recording which is monitored centrally in a nearby location by our sleep technicians. Most patients spend one or two nights having their sleep assessed. The results and treatment plans are discussed in the consecutive meeting with the sleep doctor.
The end result could be a mix of medication, psychotherapy and counseling to help the person with her/his sleep disorder.
If you feel you have any of these symptoms of sleep disorder, then please do contact us or fix an appointment with a specialist.
