The Optum Sleep Center was established to address health problems that create an inability to get a good night’s sleep. Our compassionate, qualified staff works with each patient to identify specific needs and provide treatment to improve the ability to rest and enhance their quality of life.
Do you have a sleep problem?
There are many reasons for not being able to sleep well, including disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Narcolepsy, Periodic Limb Disorder (PLD) and Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), Insomnia, and others. Participating in a sleep study can help identify your specific problem. A variety of symptoms can indicate a sleep problem, including:
How do sleep studies work?
A sleep study measures how well and how much you sleep with a test called a Polysomnogram (PSG). This includes measurement of brainwaves, muscle tension, heart rate and rhythm, breathing, and nocturnal oxygen level. Sleep study procedures are completely non-invasive and painless, and are done with sensors that are placed on the skin. A PSG lasts one or two nights: one part diagnoses the problem(s) and the other part is the treatment phase. Results are analyzed by a sleep specialist, and treatment options are discussed to meet each individual’s specific needs. Optum is fortunate to have two physicians who are both board-certified in Sleep Medicine.
