Sleep Clinic

What is a sleep clinic?

If you’re suffering from a sleep disorder, it can be difficult to diagnose while you’re awake visiting the doctor. A sleep clinic serves as an evaluation center to diagnose sleep-related issues.

The Sleep Evaluation Center at Jacinto Medical Group has provided progressive and proven treatments and helped hundreds of men and women get a better night’s rest for more than 15 years.

What conditions can a sleep clinic treat?

The sleep specialists at Jacinto Medical Group have diagnosed and treated numerous sleep disorders. Some of the most common include:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Neurological sleep disturbances
  • Nocturnal seizures
  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleepwalking
  • Restless leg syndrome

The center also provides treatment if you’re a shift worker and can’t get the rest you need.

The sleep specialists can also evaluate symptoms that may indicate a sleep disorder, such as loud snoring, daytime sleepiness, insomnia, or disturbed sleep patterns.

What can I expect during a sleep evaluation?

The sleep specialists at Jacinto Medical Group provide expert care during your sleep evaluation. When you arrive at the center, usually at night, the sleep specialist attaches special sensors to your head and body. You may also be outfitted with straps over your chest to monitor your breathing.

You’re then given a comfortable bed so you can go to sleep. During your slumber, the sleep specialists at the Sleep Evaluation Center monitor all the activity being gathered by the sensors on your body.

If they suspect you have sleep apnea, they may set up a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine to see if it helps you while you sleep.

After your sleep study test, your specialist reviews all the information gathered and develops a personalized treatment plan to help you sleep more soundly.

What can I do to sleep well at the sleep clinic?

You’re not alone if you think you’re going to have trouble sleeping in a strange bed attached to computers while being watched by strangers. The sleep specialists do everything they can to help ensure your comfort while you’re at the sleep clinic.

You can also take steps before your stay to facilitate sleep, such as:

  • Avoiding alcohol
  • Eliminating your after-lunch caffeine fix
  • Bringing your most comfortable pajamas

The team at Jacinto Medical Group believes that the information gathered during your sleep study can be invaluable.
