Is sleep medicine right for me?

Your Pulmonary Medicine Associates specialist discusses your symptoms, medical history, medications, lifestyle habits, and more. They complete a physical exam to look for underlying causes of poor sleep and may order blood testing or a sleep study at home or in the on-site sleep lab to properly diagnose your condition and treat it appropriately. 

What can I expect during sleep medicine treatments?

During treatment, you might take medications, undergo behavior-change counseling, make lifestyle changes, or take dietary supplements. It’s important to eat nutritious foods, exercise regularly, and allow yourself at least seven hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. Sleep in a cool, quiet, dark room and avoid alcohol and caffeine before bed.

Follow up with your Pulmonary Medicine Associates specialist whenever needed to ensure long-lasting, high-quality sleep.
