Sleep Disorders

Our Sleep Centers Provide Expert Care

With dedicated Sleep Centers equipped with state-of-the-art technology for precise diagnosis and monitoring, our Sleep Centers are led by neurologists who are fellowship-trained and board-certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine (ABSM). Our sleep disorders programs integrate care, as needed, from a medical team that includes neurosurgeons, pulmonologists, otorhinolaryngologists and pediatric specialists, as well as respiratory therapists and weight management specialists who can address unique needs in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.

Our registered polysomnographic technologists utilize the most sophisticated equipment to conduct sleep studies for adults and children. In comfortable, home-like settings they conduct sleep studies that help physicians precisely measure, diagnose and classify all forms of sleep or waking disorders.

Sleep Disorder Testing

Sleep Studies (Polysomnograms)
This involves spending a night in our sleep lab. As part of the procedure, monitors are placed to record brain waves, muscle activity, respiration and heart rhythms while you sleep. The monitoring and testing procedures are pain free and will not restrict you from moving around.

Pediatric Sleep Studies
The Comprehensive Sleep Medicine Center at Monmouth is one of only a handful of centers experienced in performing pediatric sleep studies. A parent or guardian will be required to stay with the patient during testing procedures.

CPAP Titration
During an overnight sleep study, you may be asked to attempt a trial with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), a device used in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. This consists of a small mask that is placed over the nose and is connected to a pressure device that acts as an air pressure splint to prevent your airways from collapsing during sleep. If the device is found to be effective, it may be prescribed as part of your treatment.

CPAP Initiation/Management
A technician will work with each patient to ensure success of CPAP therapy by acclimating them to use of the mask, and easing any anxiety.

A daytime procedure lasting from two to five hours that includes a nap and hand-on coaching from the staff to increase compliance with CPAP therapy.

Multiple Sleep Latency Test
This test usually follows an overnight sleep study. It involves a series of nap tests performed during the day to assess the degree of daytime sleepiness and is useful for diagnosing narcolepsy.

Maintenance of Wakefulness Testing
Daytime testing performed to evaluate daytime alertness. This testing may be required for certain occupations and for commercial drivers license requirements.

Polysomnography with Full EEG Monitoring
Monmouth's Comprehensive Sleep Medicine Center offers the availability of full EEG monitoring to evaluate for sleep-related seizures.
