What is sleep medicine?

Sleep medicine focuses on managing disorders and diseases affecting your ability to fall or stay asleep throughout the night.

Omni Primary & Urgent Care provides high-quality sleep medicine services for adults and children aged 12 and up. The providers use advanced technologies to diagnose the root cause of your sleep issues and create a management plan to treat them.

The sleep medicine specialists can meet with you in the office or through the online telehealth portal to evaluate your symptoms and monitor your progress with treatment.

When should I schedule a sleep medicine consultation?

You should schedule a sleep medicine consultation at Omni Primary & Urgent Care if you frequently have difficulties falling or staying asleep, wake up gasping for breath, or experience excessive daytime sleepiness.

These symptoms can be the result of sleep conditions and disorders, including:

  • Insomnia
  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleepwalking
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Central sleep apnea
  • Restless leg syndrome (RLS)

Sleep disturbances can also develop if you have an acute illness like a cold, a chronic disease like heart disease or diabetes, or if you have unmanaged stress.

If left untreated, sleep problems can negatively impact your health and increase your risk for accidents, cardiovascular disease, depression, or other mental health complications.

What happens during a sleep medicine appointment?

During your initial sleep medicine appointment at Omni Primary & Urgent Care, the providers review your personal and family medical history and complete a physical exam. They also ask questions about your sleep habits, diet, and lifestyle.

You may need a sleep study to identify the type of sleep disorder you have. The providers may also order blood work or other lab tests to rule out underlying health issues. Based on test results, they create a treatment plan that may include:

  • Sleep hygiene improvements
  • Lifestyle and diet changes
  • Daily exercise
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Medications

If you have sleep apnea and struggle to breathe during the night, your sleep specialist may recommend a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. This device delivers supplemental oxygen into your body through a face mask you wear while sleeping.

The providers also offer chronic disease management services to control conditions like diabetes that impact your sleep. They monitor your progress with treatment during in-office visits and the online telehealth platform.
