Welcome to the Drexel Sleep Center
We've all been there—eyes heavy, muscles drained. We all know what it feels like to be flat out exhausted. Whether we had an active day or simply didn't get enough sleep, fatigue tends to creep into our day from time to time. In those cases, when we're genuinely tired, it's normal to succumb to the weights tugging on our eyelids. However, if you find yourself constantly on the verge of dozing off, to the point where it affects your productivity and health, it might be due to a sleep disorder.
More than 60 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders including sleep apnea, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, and narcolepsy. These disorders disrupt normal sleep patterns and can dramatically impact a person's quality of life. If left untreated, disorders like sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, memory problems, weight gain, and headaches. But fortunately, most sleep disorders are treatable once they're diagnosed. And that's where the Drexel Sleep Center can help.
The Drexel Sleep Center offers diagnostic services to evaluate sleep patterns. Through our board-certified sleep medicine specialists and licensed support staff, a range of diagnostic services and personalized treatments are available. Testing for sleep disorders may include the monitoring of breathing, brain wave activity, and muscle activity during the sleep cycle. On-site sleep study facilities are available.
