A good night’s sleep is important to your well-being and most people spend roughly one-third of their lives asleep. One out of three people have a sleep disorder, which makes the sleeping (or waking) hours miserable. More than 95 percent of Americans with sleep disorders are believed to be undiagnosed and untreated. Once detected, most sleep disorders can be treated.

The Sleep Disorder Center at North Metro Medical Center is one of the most technologically advanced centers in the area. This Center provides comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, education, treatment and follow-up by highly trained physicians and staff committed to improving the quality of life for individuals suffering from sleep-related disorders.

Individuals exhibiting any of the following symptoms or alterations in sleep patterns may benefit from our program:

Diagnosis of sleep disorders requires a polysomnogram (PSG). A PSG is a continuous monitoring and recording of various physiological parameters of sleep for six or more hours. The routine PSG monitors, through the use of small electrodes, brain activity or EEG, chin muscle activity or EMG, eye movements, heart activity or EKG, leg movements, airflow from the nose and mouth, chest and abdominal respiratory effort, blood oxygen levels, body position and snoring.
