Sleep Disorders

   

Sleep Apnea
Is a disorder of breathing during sleep that typically is accompanied by loud snoring and consists of brief periods throughout the night in which breathing stops. 

There are two major types: 

  1. Obstructive Sleep Apnea: The most common form of apnea. It is caused by an obstruction in the airway during sleep.
  2. Central Apnea is caused by a delay in the signal from the brain to breathe.

 
Insomnia
Is characterized by difficulty falling or staying asleep or awakening too early. Insomnia can be transient, short-term, or chronic in nature.

Narcolepsy
Is a chronic disorder affecting the brain where dysfunctions of sleep and wakefulness result.

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)

Is a discomfort in the legs that is commonly referred to as a crawling, tingling/prickling sensation.

Periodic Limb Movements in Sleep (PLMS)
Is a variation of RLS and is characterized by leg movements or jerks that typically occur every 20 to 40 seconds during sleep.

Parasomnia (Sleep Terrors)

Hypersomnia
Is a persistent sleepiness despite having adequate sleep periods.

Somnambulism (Sleepwalking)
