About Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders are conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders can cause serious adverse health outcomes, yet many persons affected by sleep disorder symptoms remain undiagnosed. Sleep disorder clinics can assess sleep habits and conduct sleep disorder tests to identify any physiologic cause of sleep disturbance. Treatment depends on the type of sleep disorder involved but may entail behavior modification and sleep disorder medication.
