Reinventing healthcare one patient at a time

Sleep Disorders | The Sleep Study

Monitoring patients to assess sleep problems

Ellis Medicine's Sleep Disorders Center features beautifully furnished bedrooms where patients are monitored during an overnight stay for sleep disturbances that impair or interrupt quality sleep.

Prior to bedtime, our sleep technologists will attach small electrodes to your face, head, legs and chest. There is no discomfort associated with the application or use of electrodes. They simply enable our sleep technologists to record the electrical activity already present in your body and monitor your breathing, heart rate, brain waves, leg movement and eye movements.

Depending on the study's findings, several treatment options are possible, including:

  • Modifications of sleep habits
  • Prescribing a device to assist in maintaining an open airway during sleep
  • Medications
