Sleep disorders

Sleep disorders refer to a change or disturbance in a patient's normal sleep pattern. Sleep disorders may affect the amount of sleep and quality of sleep someone receives. Sleep timing may also be of concern in the case of disorders like narcolepsy. Sleep disorders can be linked to both medical and emotional causes.

Unattended sleep studies

Also known as home sleep tests (HSTs), unattended sleep studies are for patients with suspected moderate to severe sleep apnea. They measure many of the factors of an in-lab sleep study in the comfort of your own home.

After your home sleep test, the test results are sent to your physician, who will diagnose and determine the severity of your sleep disorder. The results and treatment options will be documented in a report that a physician at the sleep disorders center will review with you.
