Sleep disorders treated

 

A person is often unaware that he or she has sleep problems. As a result, sleep disturbances may go undiagnosed and untreated for many years, and they may never get a good night's sleep.

Sometimes, the patient complains of daytime fatigue, sleep anxiety​ or overwhelming sleepiness. Frequently, a bed partner, rather than the patient, is the best source of information about bad sleep patterns. Some common sleep problems include the following:

  • Insomnio
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • Apnea central del sueño
  • Movimientos periódicos de las extremidades
  • Sindrome de la pierna inquieta
  • Narcolepsia
  • Ronquidos
  • Parasomnias
  • Trastornos del sueño pediátricos

Tratamiento del trastorno del sueño

 
 

Para diagnosticar y tratar los trastornos del sueño, los expertos de Baylor Scott & White pueden usar una variedad de estudios del sueño y métodos de tratamiento, que incluyen:

  • Estudio del sueño en el hogar
  • Actígrafo para controlar los patrones de sueño y vigilia
  • Polisomnografía nocturna
  • Estudio de titulación de CPAP (terapia de presión continua en la vía aérea)
  • Monitoreo de crisis nocturnas
  • Estudio de soporte ventilatorio
  • Mantenimiento de la prueba de vigilia (MWT)
