Do you have problems sleeping?
Sleep disorders affect approximately 40 million Americans - of those, only five percent of individuals are ever diagnosed and treated.
Some of the symptoms of sleep disorders include:
Low energy, to the point of being too tired to exercise
Excessive daytime sleepiness
Low sex drive
Restful sleep is essential for good health. Most sleep disturbances can be treated, and the first step may be a sleep study. At the Bristol Hospital Sleep Center, you can receive a specialized sleep evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for a variety of sleep disorders, right here in your local community.
Diagnostic sleep studies
The Bristol Hospital Sleep Center allows for more personal attention and a focus on a comfortable and restful environment for you. Our amenity-rich rooms are designed to be quiet and relaxing, making them ideal for assessment and treatment. Our hotel-quality sleeping rooms are complete with new furniture, flat-screen televisions and private bathrooms.
Clinical expertise and state-of-the-art technology
During our evaluation, one of our technologists monitors heart, lung, and brain activity, blood oxygen levels, breathing patterns, and arm and leg movements. From these results, the medical director and technologists can diagnose and provide treatment for a number of sleep problems, including insomnia, sleep apnea, snoring and narcolepsy. After being treated, you may see near-immediate positive changes from your previous symptoms.
