There are more than 80 types of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia and restless legs syndrome. We understand that these conditions can significantly affect healthy sleep–and this, in turn, impacts your overall health, safety and quality of life.
Blue Ridge Medical Group’s pulmonologist performs sleep studies at the Fannin Regional Sleep Disorders Center. The Center provides a local treatment option for residents who suffer from a variety of sleep issues. The sleep study tests are non-invasive. And, patients are referred by their primary care physician for a sleep study.
Sleep disorders are a highly common medical issue that affects millions of Americans each year. While some people suffer from mild sleeping problems, such as the occasional nightmare, others have extremely severe sleep disorders that can negatively affect their health if left untreated. In fact, 95 percent of people suffering from a sleep disorder remain undiagnosed. This staggering number means there are thousands of people not getting the treatment they need, putting them in danger of permanently damaging their health.
Sleeping Disorders include:
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
- OSA testing
- Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD)
- Restless Leg Syndrome
