Studies

Riverview Sleep Center works with all types of sleeping disorders, including:

  • Sleep Apnea - A cessation of breathing for at least 10 seconds, which may include gasping, gagging, choking or snorting. This can result in excessive daytime fatigue or sleepiness.
  • Insomnia - Chronic inability to sleep soundly through the night; four or more awakenings per night; taking longer than 30 minutes to fall back asleep after awakening; or a combination of all of three.
  • Narcolepsy - A syndrome of sudden, uncontrollable desire to sleep. This can also involve sudden loss of muscle control, inability to move or involuntary loss of consciousness.
  • Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)/Periodic Limb Movement (PLM) - RLS occurs when a person experiences unpleasant sensations while awake that cause an irresistible urge to move the legs or arms. PLM occurs most often when a person is asleep and is unconscious of the movements.
  • Parasomnias - Movements occurring during sleep, such as sleep walking, night terrors, bed-wetting and grinding teeth.

  • Nocturnal Polysomnography (NPSG-Sleep Study)
  • Nocturnal Polysomnography-Split (NPSG with Cpap if needed)
  • Nocturnal Polysomnography Titration (Cpap titration)
