Did you know a Sleep Disorder can put you at greater risk than just losing a good night's sleep? Sleep Disorders dramatically increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Sleep Disorder symptoms include snoring, fatigue, daytime sleepiness, forgetfulness and lack of concentration. CRMC takes Sleep Disorders to heart to keep your heart healthy.

At the CRMC Sleep Disorders Center, our goal is to help you get the sleep you need. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders under the medical direction of sleep specialist Gracia Nabhane, M.D, Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine.
During a sleep study specialized equipment is used to monitor oxygen saturation, EEG activity, EMG activity, Respiratory
effort, Nasal/oral airflow and snoring. Types of tests include Polysomnography, Split
night studies, CPAP titration studies, Multi Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) and Maintenance/Wakefulness
All sleep studies are conducted in peaceful, hotel-like sleep suites to provide the best possible environment for rest. In addition to adult sleep studies the Sleep Disorders Center also provides sleep studies for pediatric patients. The pediatric testing room is warm and inviting for our pint sized guests. Our staff make every effort to make all patients, adults and kids alike, as comfortable as possible.
The Sleep Disorders Center staff has over 12 years experience working with physicians to diagnose sleep disorders. Staffed with technologists, expertly trained in their field, the center is equipped with the latest technology to diagnose and treat sleep disorders.
