Diagnostics and Treatments

Specialists use specific diagnostic procedures to determine the diagnosis and treatment of each patient. Once the tests are performed, the team reviews the results and creates a specialized treatment plan.

The following technology may be used as part of the process:

  • Diagnostic Sleep Studies– Overnight sleep studies conducted at the Sleep Center. A technician monitors the patient and a computerized sleep system records various brain activity and body systems.  
  • Lab Work – Blood work may rule out endocrine and metabolic disorders.
  • MRI Scan– May rule out brain stem abnormalities.
  • EKG– Assesses potential damage to the heart from untreated or undertreated breathing obstruction.
