Did you know that we spend a third of our lives sleeping? But what happens if you snore or can’t sleep altogether? You aren’t able to get the restful sleep your body needs. More importantly, it could be a sign of a sleep disorder.

Common sleep disorders

  • Insomnia
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • Restless leg syndrome (RLS)
  • Narcolepsy

Most people will try home remedies first. But it’s best to talk to a sleep medicine specialist. At Optum, you can easily schedule online with one of our many sleep experts.
Our doctors will look at your current health and symptoms to decide if a sleep screening is a good fit. From there, you can choose an at-home testing kit, or come into our sleep center.

Our centers use the latest technology to watch your sleep patterns. They carefully measure changes in oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, respiratory effort, limb movements and airflow. This information helps determine if there are any issues affecting your health and sleep.

If a sleep disorder has been identified, your doctor will choose the best care plan fit for you. And if needed, our sleep medicine specialists can connect you with other doctors to talk about any underlying health issues.

There are many misconceptions about sleep, but our providers can help get you on the right track. Sleep is the first step to good health. It’s our job to help you get there!
