College Station Sleep Center
College Station Sleep Center was the first accredited sleep lab in the region. What does it mean to be accredited? The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) awards accreditation to those facilities that meet the highest standards of sleep medicine diagnosis and treatment. College Station Sleep Center is under the direction of a board certified physician and is the only sleep center with a medical director fellowship trained in sleep medicine. What does this mean to you as a patient? This means you can rest assured you are in the care of trained professionals who are committed to helping you get a good nights sleep.
Sleep Disorders are a common medical problem which can lead to hypertension, diabetes, stroke or heart disease. Untreated Sleep Disorders can lead to a lower quality of life and reduced personal health.
College Station Sleep Center has installed the new AASM gold standard in sleep diagnostic systems. Typically, the diagnosis of sleep disorders requires an overnight stay in the sleep lab. College Station Sleep Center provides comfortable private rooms and baths which are furnished to feel like high end hotel rooms.
The AASM estimated that 1 in 25 men; 1 in 50 women; and 1 in 10 people over the age of 65 have some form of sleep apnea. Approximately 35 million people suffer from insomnia.
Among the most commonly diagnosed sleep disorders are:
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
- Central Sleep Apnea
- Primary Snoring
- Periodic Limb Movement Disorder
