Sleep Disorders Center
People suffering from sleep disorders have access to sophisticated diagnostic and treatment services at the UPMC Hamot Sleep Disorders Center.
We conduct comprehensive sleep studies in the comfort of private, well-furnished rooms using the latest digital equipment. We also offer free sleep screenings for people at risk for sleep disorders.
Comprehensive Sleep Disorder Diagnosis and Treatment
The UPMC Hamot Sleep Disorders Center offers complete evaluations and treatments for all types of sleep disorders and disturbances.
Our board-certified sleep medicine doctors, registered polysomnographic technologists, and respiratory therapists work closely with you to diagnose and treat your sleep disorder.
We use polysomnography to diagnose sleep disorders.
Conducted as you sleep in one of our private, comfortable bedrooms, polysomnographic testing monitors your:
- Blood pressure
- Eye movements
- Brain waves
- Heart rate
When used along with a patient sleep log or diary, UPMC Hamot sleep specialists can pinpoint the specific sleep disorder that is affecting you and develop an individualized treatment plan.
Most insurance plans cover polysomnography and subsequent sleep disorder treatment.
