Drew Memorial’s Sleep Center diagnoses and treats sleep disorders, from the common Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), to the more rare REM Behavior Disorders. Sleep apnea is the most common sleep disorder, and its side effects include high blood pressure, heart disease, and congestive heart failure. Symptoms to look for include daytime sleepiness/fatigue, increased irritability, snoring, witnessed apnea, difficulting staying awake, difficulty concentrating, and frequent awakening during sleep. If these symptoms are familiar, take this Epworth Scale Test to help decide if a sleep study might be necessary.
Our medical director, Dr. Ali Al-Nashif follows all sleep studies. Dr. Al-Nashif is certified in pulmonary/sleep medicine. Our staff includes a registered polysomnographic technician (RPSGT) and two staff members in training to become certified RPSGTs.
Our four-bed lab, completed in 2012, is designed and decorated to offer you the comforts of home while your sleep behavior is assessed. Patients tell us their stay seems almost like a visit to a hotel rather than a hospital stay. Our modern, private rooms allow each patient to have a comfortable night while the sleep study is performed. Sleep Center staff monitor patient sleep from the nearby control room.
