One Night Could Clear Up a Lifetime of Sleeping Problems

Are you suffering from a sleep disorder?
Do you wake up frequently at night? Or repeatedly wake up tired in the morning, even after a full night’s sleep? Do you have problems falling asleep at night and staying awake during the day? Does your sleep partner tell you that you snore, gasp, talk or thrash around in your sleep?

Today, more than 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders for days or weeks at a time. And, at least 40 million suffer for longer periods of time.

Because of sleep problems, more than one-third of the population does not get enough sleep to function at their best during their waking hours. Even more have poor quality sleep that may be disrupted or associated with other medical or health problems. And, more than 100 sleep disorders have been identified, affecting all sexes, races and age groups.

Inspira Sleep Centers Can Help

At Inspira, our board-certified sleep specialists and licensed polysomnographers (sleep technicians) will determine your specific sleep problems through a diagnostic sleep study — a non-invasive procedure which records your sleep pattern, breathing, oxygen level, heart rate and rhythm, and muscle tone while you sleep overnight. Inspira also offers patients home sleep testing, set up by sleep technicians and overseen by experienced sleep specialists to diagnose or rule out obstructive sleep apnea.

Women are More Likely than Men to Have Trouble Sleeping
Adequate and fulfilling sleep is a key component to women staying healthy and living a long and happy life. Studies show that women who sleep 6 or less hours per night have reduced reaction time when driving, increased mood swings, and in some cases serious damage to the body due to lack of adequate sleep. Women are also twice as likely to experience insomnia-related symptoms as their male counterparts. And, sleep problems can affect women’s hormone levels significantlyimpacting their weight as well as sleep health during pregnancy and menopause.

Pediatric Sleep Care
Sleep is critical to all major functions of the body. In children, sleep is essential for proper mental and physical development. Studies link sleep with learning; the area of the brain that controls processing procedural or “how to” learning has been demonstrated to be negatively affected by lack of sleep.

Medical experts indicate that any child who snores regularly, or has other signs of breathing problems during sleep, may benefit from an evaluation. In addition, for children that have difficulties with attention deficit, hyperactivity, or daytime sleepiness, there may be something that can be done to help if the child has a sleep disorder.

Inspira Sleep Centers Egg Harbor Township, Vineland and Woodbury offer specialized sleep evaluation and treatment for children with sleeping problems. After completing a night time diagnostic sleep study, one of our experienced physicians will determine a diagnosis for your child’s sleep problem and recommend appropriate treatment.
