Comprehensive Sleep Disorder Diagnosis and Treatment

Sleep disorders can significantly impact your quality of life, affecting your physical health, mental well-being, and daily functioning. At Dr. Srikanth Neuro, we specialize in diagnosing and treating a wide range of sleep disorders, helping patients achieve restful, restorative sleep.

Understanding Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders encompass a variety of conditions that disrupt normal sleep patterns. These disorders can lead to daytime fatigue, impaired concentration, mood disturbances, and other health problems.

Common Sleep Disorders We Treat

  • Insomnia: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, leading to insufficient or poor-quality sleep.
  • Sleep Apnea: A condition where breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep.
  • Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS): An irresistible urge to move the legs, usually accompanied by uncomfortable sensations.
  • Narcolepsy: Excessive daytime sleepiness and sudden sleep attacks, often accompanied by cataplexy (sudden loss of muscle tone).
  • Circadian Rhythm Disorders: Disruptions in the natural sleep-wake cycle, such as jet lag or shift work disorder.
  • Parasomnias: Unusual behaviors during sleep, including sleepwalking, night terrors, and REM sleep behavior disorder.
  • Hypersomnia: Excessive daytime sleepiness despite adequate nighttime sleep.

Diagnostic Services

At Dr. Srikanth Neuro, we use advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to accurately identify sleep disorders:

1. Polysomnography (Sleep Study)

  • Purpose: Comprehensive overnight study that monitors various body functions during sleep, including brain activity, eye movements, heart rate, breathing patterns, and limb movements.
  • Applications: Diagnosing sleep apnea, parasomnias, and other sleep disorders.

2. Home Sleep Apnea Testing

  • Purpose: Convenient, at-home testing to detect sleep apnea.
  • Applications: Suitable for patients with suspected sleep apnea.

3. Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT)

  • Purpose: Measures the speed of falling asleep in a quiet environment during the day.
  • Applications: Diagnosing narcolepsy and assessing excessive daytime sleepiness.

4. Actigraphy

  • Purpose: Wrist-worn device that tracks movement and sleep-wake patterns over several days.
  • Applications: Evaluating circadian rhythm disorders and insomnia.

Treatment Options

Based on the diagnosis, our specialists at Dr. Srikanth Neuro develop personalized treatment plans, which may include:

1. Lifestyle and Behavioral Therapies

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I): A structured program that helps identify and replace thoughts and behaviors that cause or worsen sleep problems.
  • Sleep Hygiene Education: Guidance on habits and practices that promote good sleep.

2. Medical Therapies

  • Medications: Prescribing medications to manage sleep disorders, such as sleep aids for insomnia or stimulants for narcolepsy.
  • CPAP Therapy: Continuous Positive Airway Pressure therapy for treating sleep apnea by keeping the airways open during sleep.
  • Iron Supplements: For treating Restless Legs Syndrome caused by iron deficiency.

3. Advanced Therapies

  • Surgical Interventions: Procedures to treat sleep apnea, such as uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) or Inspire therapy (a device implanted to stimulate the airway muscles).
