Sleep Medicine Program
Adult Sleep Medicine Program
We care for patients with a broad spectrum of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, and restless leg syndrome. We are accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and evaluate, diagnose, and treat these disorders with a coordinated approach. We know that a good night of sleep matters.
Other issues we treat include:
- Sleep apnea-related seizure disorders
- Circadian and shift work-related disorders
- Parasomnias, such as sleep walking and talking, and abnormal behavior during sleep
Our internationally recognized physicians are board-certified in pulmonary critical care medicine or neurology. They also have additional certifications in sleep medicine. As an interdisciplinary program, we work closely with specialists in otolaryngology (ENT), neurology, cardiology, psychology, dentistry, and bariatric surgery.
We offer a state-of-the art lab testing system to pinpoint patients’ sleep problems, as well as home sleep-testing systems. At the West Haven VA, we care for veterans, who frequently struggle with sleep issues related to posttraumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Our VA program includes six in-hospital monitoring beds and 30 home sleep-testing units.
Through our Sleep Center in the Department of Pediatrics, we treat sleep disorders in children, and manage patients with congenital disorders that impact breathing during sleep. We have a three-bed testing unit in Yale New Haven Hospital specifically designed for children that includes dedicated staff who are experienced in dealing with children and their sleep disorders.
