About Sleep Medicine

Sleep medicine focuses on sleep, sleep disorders, and sleep-related conditions. Trouble sleeping can reduce the overall quality of life and a chronic lack of sleep may worsen the severity of certain medical conditions, including epilepsy, asthma, and heart disease.

Sleep medicine specialists diagnose and treat a number of sleep-related conditions, including excessive snoring, sleep apnea (obstructive sleep apnea; OSA), insomnia (inability to sleep or sleep well), narcolepsy (chronic, uncontrollable daytime sleepiness), and circadian rhythm disorders.

A sleep study, which is offered by Peak Sleep Clinic for FREE as a take-home overnight option, is often used to evaluate the patient’s wake-sleep cycle. Common sleep disorder treatments include medications, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), oral appliances, and therapy (e.g., bright light therapy).
