The Sleep Center at SBH Health System offers treatment for a variety of sleep disorders for children and adults including:
- Obstructive sleep apnea
- Restless leg syndrome
For adults with suspected sleep apnea we offer testing in our sleep laboratory on the 6th floor of St. Barnabas Hospital as well as home sleep testing. Treatment options for adult patients with OSA include CPAP therapy, oral appliance therapy (treatment with a small mouthpiece similar to a mouth guard), as well as surgical therapy.
For children with OSA, treatment options include medical therapy, surgical treatment (removal of the tonsils and adenoids) as well as dental therapy for select patients.
For patients with insomnia, treatment options include cognitive behavioral therapy, medical management and cranial electrode stimulation therapy.
Sleep problems have been linked to such serious conditions as obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and depression. A disorder like sleep apnea can be a very serious, even life-threatening disease. Be sure to follow up with your doctor if you have sleep problems.
