UM SJMG – Pulmonary Care and Sleep Medicine diagnoses and treats a wide range of sleep disorders, including:

  • Sleep apnea (common condition in which your breathing stops and restarts while you sleep)
  • Upper airway resistance syndrome
  • Insomnia (trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting good quality sleep)
  • Restless leg syndrome (a neurological disorder that causes unpleasant or uncomfortable sensations in your legs and an urge to move them)
  • Narcolepsy (chronic neurological disorder that affects the brain's ability to control sleep-wake cycles)

Sleep Study

Also called polysomnography, a sleep study is a painless test that evaluates how well you sleep, measuring body functions such as:

  • Blood oxygen
  • Brain waves
  • Breathing rate
  • Eye movements
  • Heart rate
  • Leg movements

In making a diagnosis, our team of board-certified sleep doctors and licensed sleep technologists conduct comprehensive studies including:

Home Sleep Study

This patient-led test, done in your home, monitors breathing during sleep, helping us diagnose sleep apnea and other sleep disorders.

In-Lab Sleep Study

Overnight studies in our Sleep Center are performed in a safe, comfortable environment and monitored by a licensed sleep technologist.

Sleep Disorder Treatment

After patient questionnaires, consultations and sleep studies, we typically recommend an individualized treatment plan that may include:

  • Changes in behavior to improve sleep
  • Sleep apnea treatment (may involve use of an implantable device)
  • CPAP and BiPAP therapy management
  • Sleep medications
