How We Can Help
Please read below on ways The Sleep Institute can help you, if you are unsure if you have a sleeping disorder please view our sleep problems checklist.
Making Our Comprehensive Care Easy To Get.
At the Sleep Institute, we keep our fees reasonable. We accept and file all insurance and welcome both Medicare and Medicaid. The Sleep Institute offers interest-free payment and honors all major credit cards, too. Our full-service disorders center is open seven days a week. Routine office visits are set around your schedule, Monday through Friday. Appointments are often available the same day you call. Depending on your referring doctor’s request, diagnosis and treatment can start immediately and for added one-stop convenience. The Sleep Institute is also a primary resource for sleep care supplies included CPAP machines, oxygen, and masks!
Keeping You and Your Doctor Informed.
Preliminary reports are sent to your referring doctor within a few days of your initial visit. If you need a sleep study, it will be scored, evaulated, and sent to your doctor in a timely manner. After brining your doctor up-to-date, The Sleep Institute will personally let you know the results of your sleep study firsthand.
Helping You Breathe Easier.
Every time you breathe your body releases carbon dioxide and then replaces it with oxygen. If your breathing capabilities are inadequate because of either illness or injury, the oxygen levels in your blood decrease. At this point you may require supplemental oxygen as provided by oxygen therapy.
Oxygen therapy is a vital component in respiratory care. The prescribed oxygen is inhaled along with normal air. Breathing prescribed oxygen therefore increased the amount of oxygen in your blood. The increased oxygen levels fuel the brain and muscle cells to help ease your hearts workload. Increased oxygen levels can also improve your breathing, mood, memory, and quality of sleep.
Address Your Sleep Issues
Diagnosing Your Sleep Problem.
Common Sleep Disorders Include:
Shift Work Sleep Disorder Insomnia Excessive Sleepiness Teeth Grinding Snoring Sleep Apnea Hypersomnia Restless Leg Syndrome Periodic Limb Movement Disorder Frequent Night Bathroom Visits Narcolepsy Chronic Fatigue
Helping You Beat Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
We offer the most up-to-date CPAP machines for the treatment of sleep apnea. CPAP, which stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, is the most effective therapy for sleep apnea in the medical marketplace today. Our CPAP machines are the newest models with built-in heated humidifiers and are compact, extremely quiet and easy to use.
Each of our CPAP machines comes with a mask, which is worn during sleep periods. The mask is connected to a pump that gently opens the nasal passages at pressures that are high enough to overcome airway obstructions while breathing. With the newer CPAP’s the pressure actually drops with exhalation, making it easier to breathe.
The effect on sleep apnea symptoms as well as on overall sleep quality is instantaneous. Our patients usually report waking up the morning after their first CPAP therapy feeling like a completely new person.
Soothing and Inviting.
The environment at all the Sleep Institute facilities are provided by friendly, compassionate professionals.
