Comprehensive Sleep Evaluations and Follow-Up Care

It Shouldn’t Be Hard Work to Get a Good Night’s Sleep.

Nearly 70 million people in America suffer from a sleep problem. Up to 80% of sleep apnea sufferers have yet to be diagnosed. Untreated sleep disorders and sleep deprivation are estimated to cost Americans 100 billion dollars each year. An estimated 1,000,000 police-reported accidents, 1,550 fatalities, and 71,000 injuries were caused by drowsy drivers. Normal sleep is a restorative process that allows a person to live a healthy, productive life. Suffering from a sleep disorder can be debilitating. Studies have shown links between sleep apnea, heart disease, diabetes, and other metabolic diseases. The Oregon Clinic's Sleep Medicine Specialty has a nationally prominent team of pulmonary physicians and neurologists with expertise in evaluating and treating patients with a wide variety of sleep-related illnesses and disorders.
