The St. Elizabeth Healthcare Sleep Disorders Centers were established to assist your family physician in the diagnosis and treatment of problems with your sleep or ability to remain awake.
Sleep is a very important part of our lives. How well we sleep has a direct bearing on how we feel and our health. Some people have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep at night, while others find it difficult to remain awake during the day.
The most common sleep disturbances include insomnia, sleep apnea, periodic limb movements and shift work. There are many other types of sleep disturbances, including narcolepsy, sleepwalking, sleep terror and bedwetting. These problems can affect your ability to function normally and some may even be life threatening.
