Sleep Science Center
A sleep disorder can rob you of the rest you need to stay healthy and happy.
The good news is that sleep disorders are highly treatable. Unfortunately, many people who have a sleep disorder haven't been diagnosed. As a result, they aren't getting the treatment they need. UI Health can help.
Our state-of-the-art Sleep Science Center offers physician consultations and evaluations, sleep study testing, and the fitting of respiratory equipment, all at one convenient location here in Chicago.
Sleep Disorders We Treat
The Center assesses and treats all sleep disorders, including:
- Daytime sleepiness
- Night terrors
- Pediatric sleep problems
- Sleep schedule disorders
- Obstructive sleep apnea
- Restless leg syndrome
Our services start with a consultation with one of our experienced sleep doctors. If necessary, we can schedule a sleep study to help us diagnose the sleep disorder.
Sleep studies are done at our Sleep Science Center. If you have a sleep study, you'll usually spend one night, arriving at 8 pm and leaving at 6 am. The sleep study rooms are comfortable and hotel-like. Each one has a TV and a private bathroom. You can even have a family member spend the night with you.
While you sleep, our experienced sleep technicians will gather data that your sleep doctor can evaluate later. It's a painless process that can yield valuable information about what's happening with your body while you're asleep.
Sleep Disorder Treatments
Depending on the findings of your sleep consultation or sleep study, your doctor will recommend a course of treatment. In some cases, this may be as simple as lifestyle changes.
If additional treatment or sleep aids are required, we have knowledgeable staff on site who can help. For example, if you need sleep apnea treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), our team can help make sure the mask fits properly and instruct you on how to use the device.
