Mercy offers a comprehensive program for diagnosing and treating all major sleep disorders in adults and children. Our programs are fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and staffed by board-certified sleep specialists. We utilize state-of-the-art technology, and a specialized team of physicians, psychologists and registered sleep technologists who have devoted their careers to the study of sleep and the treatment of sleep disorders.
If the quality of your nighttime sleep is affecting your daytime life, a Mercy Sleep Center can help. Most sleep disorders can be effectively treated once they are properly diagnosed. Our team of trained professionals wll work together to analyze your sleep patterns, determine the source of the problem and develop a treatment plan specific to you. For most sleep disorders, an initial interview combined with one or two nights in a sleep center is all that is required. It may be the first step on the path to a good night's sleep.
Sleep apnea is another condition that causes disordered sleeping. It causes you to pause in your breathing during sleep. It is common for these pauses to occur 5 to 30 times per hour. Generally, when you resume breathing after the pause, normal breathing starts again, often with a loud snort or choking sound.
