One in four people has a sleep disorder, with some disorders life-threatening. There are nearly 100 different known sleep disorders, each with different symptoms. The impact of these sleep disorders extend far beyond a person’s actual sleep time. The lack of good quality sleep can limit how well a person functions physically, mentally and emotionally, and can affect his or her health, work, relationships and safety.
Fortunately, many sleep disorders are treatable when diagnosed and with the help of highly-trained healthcare professionals such as those found in the Sleep Lab at Geary Community Hospital.
