Sleep disorders treated

A person is often unaware that he or she has a sleep disorder. 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 disorders 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
