Sleep Disorders

Getting a good night’s sleep – it’s something we all want and need.  Our outlook on life and daytime productivity depend on it.  Our health is impacted by it.  But when we don’t sleep well over time, it affects our lives in a big way.  The staff at The Sleep Lab Hawaii are committed to improving this important aspect of your life.  From evaluation of your sleep, to diagnosis of your sleep disorder, to treatment options, and ongoing care, we want to work with you to make sure you have the opportunity for a good night’s sleep!

The Sleep Lab consults with you regarding your particular sleep problems.  Common sleep complaints include snoring, insomnia, non-refreshing sleep, day time sleepiness, morning headache, and restless leg syndrome.  Often it is the bed-partner who notices you snore or are restless during sleep. Did you know that one of the most common sleep disorders, obstructive sleep apnea, increases your risk of hypertension, heart disease, and stroke?  Sleepy drivers are at risk of car crashes.  Productivity at work and home may suffer.

The Sleep Lab conducts sleep studies administered by highly-trained technologists at our Kaneohe and Kapahulu facilities.  The data gathered from the sleep studies is interpreted by our board-certified sleep medicine physician.  We take this information and develop a personalized treatment plan in collaboration with you.  We are committed to ongoing evaluation to make sure the treatment is effective and you are sleeping better.  Appointments are available at both locations.

Sleep is important for both physical and mental health.  More than 25% of Americans report problems with sleep or daytime alertness.  People who suffer from disordered sleep report lower quality of life, impaired job performance, and have higher rates of mood disorders.   Despite the negative consequences of sleep disorders most people remain untreated.
