About Sleep Disorders

Over seventy million Americans are affected by sleep disorders that can be disruptive to them and their families. Untreated sleep disorders can lead to poor performance at work and school. Sleep disorders are also closely associated with serious medical conditions such as:

  • Depression
  • High blood pressure
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes

 

Our Team of Experts

Our patients are seen by a board-certified sleep physician. We closely collaborate with referring providers to provide seamless delivery of care. All technical staff members are Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (RPSGT) with the Board of Polysomnographic Technologists. Together with a Board Certified Sleep Physician, we see patients for consultations on disorders including sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, narcolepsy, and circadian rhythm disorders.

Support Group

We provide an opportunity for patients to meet and discuss nutritional issues, treatment options, and other health care issues related to sleep disorders at the Upper Valley A.W.A.K.E. Support Group coordinated here at the hospital.

For meeting times, call 603-448-7436 or email. Please note that A.W.A.K.E. meetings are intended to be a source of general information and support, not for individual medical advice.

Testing

All sleep evaluations and testing are provided following a referral from your primary care provider. If providers need a copy of the referral form for the Sleep Center at Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, they should call or email us directly. Patients can avoid taking time off work by having their sleep study done overnight. The Sleep Health Center accepts most major insurance plans, and our staff can help you with your insurance questions, including pre-certification and verification.

Sleep Study or Polysomnograph

An overnight study of your sleep conducted at our Sleep Center that diagnoses the type of sleep disorder you may have. The test monitors your heart rate, breathing rate and rhythm, eye movement, muscle activity, brain activity, blood oxygen level, and airflow.

 

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Trial

This trial is for those who have already been tested and diagnosed with sleep apnea. During this test patients will wear a CPAP mask to keep the airway open. At optimal airway pressure, the patient will no longer snore or have periods of sleep disordered breathing. Surgical options are also available if physical corrections are needed. Nonconventional methods, such as positional measures and oral appliances, are also available

Multiple Sleep Latency Testing or MSLT

Used to determine how tired patients are during the day. During this test we look for how quickly subjects fall asleep and which stage of sleep they are able achieve.

Multiple Wakefulness Test or MWT

Determines how likely patients are to stay awake in a sedentary situation.

Actigraph

Determines circadian rhythm (sleep wake cycle). Patients wear a wristwatch-type device for a period of two to three weeks; during this time, the device records your wrist movements, which are inactive during sleep.
