Restoring restful sleep to your nights and improving the quality of your days
Every year, millions of Americans experience fatigue, irritability, depression, lack of concentration and memory, lost productivity and car or workplace accidents - all due to sleep disorders. Such symptoms can obviously affect your job, relationships, health and essentially your quality of life. Yet, many people do not seek professional help because they do not realize that it is available. If left untreated, some sleep disorders may increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack or stroke. Busy schedules, stress, caffeine or even certain foods can keep you from getting a good night's sleep. But when a sleeping problem persists, it can be a sign of a medical disorder.
Advocate's approach to excellence in sleep disorders
Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep can dramatically affect the quality of your daytime hours, and sometimes indicates a more serious condition. At Advocate Health Care, we have a deep understanding of the restorative powers of sleep and how to restore yours through experienced consultation, testing, and treatment.
Most sleep disorders can be effectively treated once they are diagnosed. Advocate's dedicated sleep disorder centers operate under the direction of board-certified neurologists and sleep specialists. They provide a comfortable environment for overnight and daytime sleep observation using sensitive monitoring technology. Our sleep center professionals work closely with your physician to ensure a restful resolution.
The Convenience of Home Sleep Apnea Testing
It is predicted that 80% of sleep apnea patients remain undiagnosed. Maybe that’s because many patients find spending the night at a sleep center to be too bothersome. At Advocate Health Care there is a more convenient option. At Home Sleep Apnea Tests allow you to have the test completed in the comforts of your own home and bed. Home sleep tests are not appropriate for every patient; please call 1-800-3-ADVOCATE (1-800-323-8622) to learn if this option is right for you.
We tailor your treatment to your medical needs and the detailed data we gather on your sleep disturbances. Our recommendations may include changing your diet or sleep schedule, or using a sleep mask or other equipment to improve your breathing. You might also find relief through initiating a weight-loss program that includes regular exercise, starting or changing medication, taking steps to improve stress management, or considering surgical intervention.
