Sleep disorders are not only hazardous to your ability to focus and be alert, they can be detrimental to your general health. The specially trained medical doctors at Bayfront Health’s diagnostic sleep centers can determine which of these sleep disorders are keeping you from getting the good night’s sleep you need.
Florida Hospital Dade City (formerly known as Bayfront Health Dade City) offers the services of board-certified physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating sleep disorders. We treat:
- Sleep apnea
- Chronic insomnia
- Nocturnal myoclonus/restless leg syndrome
- Gastroesophageal reflux (also known as acid reflux or heartburn) that may result in insomnia, poor sleep quality or periodic limb movement disorder
The Sleep Lab at Florida Hospital Dade City provides complete clinical evaluations, including a nighttime sleep test called a polysomnogram. A polysomnogram test involves sleeping in a laboratory where all aspects of sleep are carefully monitored. It is done in a comfortable, private room with a technician in attendance throughout the night for assistance. The test is safe and painless.
During the sleep test, sensors are placed on the patient's head, chest, on either side of the eyes and under the chin. These sensors record brain waves, eye movements and heart and muscle activity. Other sensors are used to monitor breathing and blood oxygen levels. Nighttime recordings often are followed by a daytime test, such as the multiple sleep latency test, to determine whether the sleep disorder involves an increased tendency to fall asleep.
