Get Help...Sleep Soundly!

The Sleep Disorders Center at Broward Health North offers diagnosis and treatment for more than 80 different sleep disorders. The Center is comprised of physicians who are board certified in sleep medicine and pulmonary medicine, and staff who have specialized in sleep disorders.

Sleep disorders can be caused by many different reasons, including breathing problems, neurological problems or insomnia. The Sleep Disorders Center is one of the most comprehensive facilities in the area and provides evaluations, diagnostics testing and treatment for all causes.

Polysomnography, or sleep study monitoring, records various physiological responses during sleep, such as brain activity, muscle movements, eye movements, breathing ability, cardiac monitoring and oxygen levels in the blood.

Once the diagnosis is made, the Center provides a full range of treatment options. If a patient is diagnosed with sleep apnea and requires continuous positive airway pressure or bi-level airway pressure, free training and support is available through the Sleep Disorder Center.
