The Sleep Center at EIRMC is the most experienced and comprehensive in the region. For over 20 years, we've turned "tossing and turning" into sweet, sound slumber. If you do have a sleep disorder, in most cases we can fully treat or control the problem.
Sleep is not a luxury or a life-style tradeoff for a busy person. It’s a basic medical necessity. Some sleep disorders, especially sleep apnea, can leave you not only drowsy and sluggish, but can also worsen other medical conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
If it's been too long since you've slept well, let us help. Many patients with sleep disorders can be treated successfully by such simple means as weight control, or a change in sleeping positions or even metabolic testing to help identify a more sleep-friendly diet. More severe cases may call for air-supplied sleep masks, or other devices worn during sleep. Other remedies include medication and surgery to align the jaw or increase the size of the air passage. Whatever your condition calls for, we’ll help make your dreams of a better night's sleep a reality.
When you're ready to stop losing sleep, call us at (208) 529-6139. If you already have a sleep procedure scheduled, you can pre-register online.
