If you lie in bed dreaming about dreaming, you're not alone. More than 100 million Americans of all ages, fail to get a good night’s sleep on a regular basis.

Nebraska Medicine sleep experts can help you with some of the most common sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia and narcolepsy, as well as some of the more rare conditions such as restless leg syndrome and central sleep apnea which occurs because your brain fails to send the proper signals to the muscles that control breathing. If you are concerned with how you sleep, talk to your doctor to see if a home sleep test or sleep study is right for you. 

Accredited facility and team of sleep medicine specialists

Our Sleep Disorders Center has been accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) since 1991, the gold standard by which sleep disorder centers are evaluated and rated. Our center is staffed by a team of advanced expertise that include:

  • Board certified sleep medicine specialists

We offer convenient home sleep apnea testing and sleep studies performed in our sleep lab

A home sleep apnea test is a simplified and convenient version of the overnight study that focuses on nighttime breathing. If our doctors determine that you may have symptoms that requires further evaluation, you will be recommended for an overnight sleep study in our accredited sleep lab. Our overnight sleep study uses a polysomnogram which records your heart, lung, brain activity, breathing patterns, arm and leg movements and blood-oxygen levels while you sleep. These measurements can be used to identify different sleep stages and various sleep problems.

We use a wide variety of techniques and therapies to improve your sleep

Lifestyle Changes 

If you have a mild case of obstructive sleep apnea, your doctor may recommend making lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, quitting smoking, avoiding sleeping pills and alcohol or sleeping on your side.

Positive Airway Pressure 

The most common treatment for sleep apnea for example is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). More than 90 percent of patients can be treated successfully with CPAP. CPAP opens the airways by using a machine that delivers air pressure through a mask placed over your nose while you sleep.

Surgical Options 

Several surgical options may be available to you depending on the severity of your sleep problem. Your doctor will determine if you are a surgical candidate and will discuss these options with you.
