Lack of sleep can have serious health consequences

A lack of effective sleep does more than just make you grumpy or groggy. Interrupted sleep can cause daytime sleepiness, which increases your risk for accidents. Poor sleep can also significantly impact mood and memory. Your sleeping problem could be caused by obstructive sleep apnea, which may increase your risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. When you consider the health benefits of a good night's sleep, it's worth making sure your sleep time is time well-spent.

Our Sleep Technicians can help eliminate, under Dr. Junqueira or Dr. Shapiro's guidance, the risk bad sleep habits can put on your overall health and treat specific issues. To better serve you, our technicians are bi-lingual.

Sleep disorders in children may lead to daytime moodiness, irritability, lack of focus in class, sleepiness in school, inability to get up in time for school, and significant behavioral and learning problems. Some sleep disorders are serious enough to cause adverse cardiovascular and metabolic effects as well as failure to thrive. The Sleep Disorder Center is currently treating pediatric patients.

Are you getting enough sleep?

The amount of sleep a person needs depends on many factors, including age. For example, in general:
Infants require about 14-15 hours a day.
Teenagers need about 8.5-9.5 hours on average.
Most adults need 7 to 9 hours a night for the best amount of sleep, although some people may need as few as 6 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day.
Women in the first 3 months of pregnancy often need several more hours of sleep than usual.

Sleep disorders can be effectively treated once accurately diagnosed through a sleep study. Treatments are covered by many insurance companies. If you have questions about coverage, it is best to contact your insurance company. For information about the Sleep Disorder Center, please call (620) 874-4856.
