Help for sleep disorders is available at many Baylor Scott & White Health facilities. Our sleep programs are dedicated to alleviating symptoms and improve sleep patterns and daily life for people with sleep disorders. We offer a full range of up-to-date diagnostic and treatment procedures as part of our comprehensive care program to help you get back to sleep.

Sleep Disorders Treated​

A person is often unaware that he or she has a sleep problem. As a result, sleep problems may go undiagnosed and untreated for many years. Sometimes, the patient complains of daytime fatigue or overwhelming sleepiness. Frequently, a bed partner, rather than the patient, is the best source of information. Some common sleep problems include the following:

  • Insomnia
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Central sleep apnea
  • Periodic limb movements
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Narcolepsy
  • Snoring
  • Parasomnias
  • Pediatric sleep disorders

To diagnose and treat sleep disorders, experts at Baylor Scott & White may use a variety of sleep studies and treatment methods, including:

  • Home sleep study
  • Actigraph to monitor sleep and wake patterns
  • Nocturnal polysomnography
  • CPAP titration study (continuous airway pressure therapy)
  • Nocturnal seizure monitoring
  • Ventilatory support study
  • Maintenance of wakefulness test (MWT)
  • Multiple sleep latency testing (MSLT)
  • Pediatric sleep study
