What is Sleep Medicine?

Sleep Medicine is a special area of medicine that deals with finding and treating sleep problems. These problems can really affect how someone feels and their health in general. Some common sleep issues are trouble sleeping, sleep apnea, restless legs, and narcolepsy.


Our Approach to Sleep Medicine

At Volusia Medical Center, our approach is focused on giving you personalized care for your sleep issues. We know everyone's different, so we listen carefully to what you have to say, learn about your sleep habits, and figure out what might be causing your sleep problems. Our goal is not only to diagnose and treat sleep disorders but also to deal with what's causing them, so you can sleep better and feel better overall.

Services We Offer in Sleep Medicine

1. Comprehensive Sleep Evaluations

We carefully check your sleep habits, medical history, and symptoms. We use advanced tests like polysomnography (sleep studies), actigraphy, and home sleep apnea testing to understand your condition better and plan the right treatment.

2. Treatment for Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep. We have different ways to help with this, like using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, mouthpieces, changing sleep positions, and making lifestyle changes.

3. Management of Insomnia

Insomnia means having trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too early. Our sleep experts check everything and make a plan just for you. This might include talking things out, learning about good sleep habits, trying relaxing methods, and sometimes using medicine if needed.

4. Treatment for Restless Legs Syndrome

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is when your legs feel uncomfortable and you can't resist moving them. We have different ways to help, like changing your lifestyle, taking medicine, adding iron to your diet, and trying alternative therapies.

5. Management of Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is when you feel very sleepy during the day and might suddenly lose muscle control (cataplexy), feel unable to move when waking up (sleep paralysis), or see things that aren't there (hallucinations). Our sleep specialists will look at your symptoms and create a plan just for you, which might include medicine, changes to your daily habits, and other ways to help you feel better.
