Sleep Disorders Center

Good sleep is important for good health. But according to the National Sleep Foundation, 65% of Americans report that they do not get enough sleep (most adults need six to eight hours).

EVALUATING YOUR SLEEP

Bozeman Health Sleep Disorders Center is a facility that specializes in the evaluation of all disorders of wakefulness and sleep. Our Sleep Disorders Center utilizes the most up-to-date equipment to test for sleep disorders and conducts overnight sleep studies (polysomnographies) and Multiple Sleep Latency Tests to provide physicians with the needed information to make a correct diagnosis of the sleep problem. Our staff is highly trained, sensitive to patients whose lives are often disrupted by their sleep problems and dedicated to providing the best solutions available that are customized to the needs of the individual.

We specialize in the evaluation of all disorders of wakefulness and sleep. Our medical staff is board certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine. Our center utilizes technologically advanced equipment to test for sleep disorders and conducts overnight sleep studies.

Sleep disorders and lack of sleep are not just annoyances; they are serious problems. Those with sleep problems may think or move more slowly, make more mistakes or have memory difficulties. These negative effects can lead to poor job productivity and can be a contributing factor in motor vehicle accidents, weight gain, heart problems, colds and flu.

Lack of sleep can also strain emotions, family and job relationships and social encounters, and lead to greater health problems if left untreated.

At Bozeman Health Sleep Disorders Center, we diagnose and treat sleep disorders so that each patient can enjoy better health and return to the activities that are most important to them.

Common Sleep Disorders

OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) occurs when the upper air passage becomes blocked during sleep and allows less air to reach the lungs. This can be caused by relaxation of neck muscles, the tongue moving back in the mouth or large tonsils. Common symptoms include snoring, sleepiness during the day, dry mouth in the morning, and sometimes, pauses in breathing witnessed by a bed partner. After diagnosis by an overnight sleep study, a variety of treatments are available, including Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), surgery or dental devices. Left untreated, OSA can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and fatal car accidents.

PERIODIC LIMB MOVEMENT SYNDROME

Periodic Limb Movement Syndrome (PLMS) is the rhythmic jerking of legs or occasionally arms at night that can disrupt sleep. Often this is associated with the feeling of restless legs before going to sleep. Some patients describe an electric sensation in legs, a persistent need to move the legs to be comfortable or sometimes violent kicks. Many successful treatments are available for this disorder and typically a sleep study is not needed.

NARCOLEPSY

Narcolepsy is the inability to stay awake at appropriate times and usually begins during the teenage years. Unusual events like sleep paralysis are associated with this disorder. Sleep studies are used to diagnose this disorder and treatment is available.

INSOMNIA

Insomnia, or the inability to sleep or stay asleep can be very distressful, especially when it persists over a long period of time. Behavioral therapies, and occasionally medication, are often successful in treating insomnia. More importantly, a detailed evaluation into the cause of the problem is helpful to prevent further problems with sleeplessness.
