Receive sleep disorder treatment in Los Angeles, CA. Sleep problems, including snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, sleep deprivation, restless legs syndrome, excessive daytime sleep, narcolepsy, cataplexy, circadian rhythm disorders (sleep/wake cycle disordrers) of sleep, work-shift sleep disorders, and sleep deprivation disorders are very common among millions of Americans. At The Neurology Center for Adults and Children, we understand the importance of sleep and how the different states of sleep impact sleep quality, quantity, and sleep dreams.
We offer a variety of sleep disorder testing services including sleep apnea and its treatments. The first line of treatment for sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). A positive flow of air is applied to the nose, or to the nose and mouth together, to prevent collapse of the soft palate and physical structures at the oral pharynx, which are the cause of obstructive sleep apnea. In some cases, a bi-level pressure system (BIPAP) is applied.
We also offer occupational sleep medicine services.
