Why the Doctor Treats Snoring Seriously

Do you snore or have a difficult time staying awake during the day?

A Broward Health Sleep Disorder Center can help! We offer sleep testing (polysomnography), Home Sleep Studies, CPAP education, Pillar Procedure, and comprehensive treatment plans. Our Sleep Disorder Centers are conveniently located at Broward Health Medical Center, Broward Health Coral Springs, and Broward Health North. Our experts are trained in identifying and treating sleep disorders. At Broward Health Coral Springs, we also evaluate, diagnose and treat sleep disorders in children.

Sleep Disorders may range from a variety of problems such as:

  • Breathing problems: Sleep apnea, a condition in which breathing becomes shallow or stops while you sleep. It is usually associated with loud snoring and daytime sleepiness. If left untreated, sleep apnea may cause heart disease, obesity, stroke, and increased mortality.
  • Neurological problems: Narcolepsy, a condition that causes sudden uncontrollable sleepiness, vivid dreaming, "sleep attacks," a loss of muscle control and sometime hallucinations.
  • Insomnia: The inability to initiate and or maintain sleep. Often, this may be due to emotional or situational circumstances. If it lasts more than a few weeks, you may have a more serious problem.

These are some of the most common problems associated with 84 of the known sleeping disorders.
Symptoms of a sleep disorder may include:

  • daytime sleepiness
  • drowsiness while driving
  • difficulty concentrating
  • morning headache
  • snoring
  • hypertension
  • Diabetes

Sleep Disorder Centers at Broward Health Medical Center, Broward Health Coral Springs, and Borward Health North can help you diagnose and treat any sleep disorder issues.

Scheduling an Appointment

If you are concerned about the quantity and quality of your sleep or your bed partner has made comments to you about your snoring or other related sleep problems, consult with your primary care physician or specialist. If appropriate, your physician will refer you to the Sleep Disorder Center.
