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 will serve as Copley’s Sleep Medicine Specialist, and Mandy Poginy, NP will serve as clinical provider. Dr. Collins will read and interpret the data, and will make treatment recommendations. Mandy, who will be on-site, will meet with patients, assess his or her condition, and determine 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 Therapists will conduct the study. A sleep study monitors sleep stages, patterns, heart activity, blood oxygen levels, and body movements. The data will then be sent to Dr. Collins, who will interpret it and make recommendations. The patient will have a follow-up appointment with Mandy, who will go over the results and recommendations.
