Sleep medicine

Change your life overnight at Welia Health. The medical professionals in our Sleep Center focus on helping patients identify and overcome sleep disorders that can decrease health status, alertness, and safety.

Sleep disorders

Obstructive sleep apnea, one of the most common sleep disorders, may cause a person to stop breathing 20 to 60 (or more) times per hour during the night. Due to these periods of non-breathing, people may experience snoring, gasping or choking sensations, daytime sleepiness, mood swings, weight gain, excessive sweating during sleep, high blood pressure, and morning headaches.

When breathing stops during the night, blood oxygen levels drop, and most don’t even know it is happening. This repeated stress on the heart, brain and other organs may cause a number of negative health problems in people with undiagnosed sleep apnea.

Diagnosing sleep disorders

Through clinical studies conducted in the Sleep Center or through a home sleep study (HST), Welia Health care providers can help patients uncover what barriers are preventing them from getting the good night’s sleep they need and deserve.

More information about sleep education can be found by visiting the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
