Sleep Disorders Clinic
Do you struggle to get a good night’s sleep? Do you find yourself irritable and always tired?
If left untreated, sleep disorders may increase the risk of blood pressure, heart attack, stroke or accidents. Snoring and insomnia can be symptoms of a sleep disorder.
Copley’s Sleep Clinic is conveniently located on the main floor and uses state of the art digital monitoring equipment to obtain the highest quality data in an effort to evaluate your sleep disorder.
Roslinde Collins-Gibbard, MD serves as Copley’s Sleep Medicine Specialist, and Naomi Badger, NP as clinical provider. Dr. Collins reads and interprets the data, and makes treatment recommendations. Naomi, meets with patients, assess his or her condition, and determines if an overnight sleep study is necessary. A sleep study is not always necessary: for some, the care plan can be managed through behavioral therapy, changes in daily habits or work schedules, medications, or with equipment such as a nasal mask to relieve snoring and support airway obstruction.
The first step is to talk with your doctor about your concerns, as a referral is required.
If you require an overnight study, one of Copley Hospital’s trained Respiratory Polysomnographic Therapists will conduct the study. A sleep study monitors sleep stages, patterns, heart activity, blood oxygen levels, and body movements. The data is then sent Dr. Collins, who then interprets it and make recommendations. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled with Naomi to review the results and recommendations.
