Date:6/18/2012

Old Bridge, NJ (PRWEB) June 18, 2012

The Center for Sleep Medicine at Raritan Bay Medical Center, Old Bridge, was named to the Sleep Review’s Best of 2012 Sleep Doctors and Facilities list. The Center is the only New Jersey facility named to the Best of 2012 list, compiled by the national professional journal for sleep specialists. The ‘Best of’ selections were picked by the editors after review of the nominated facilities’ medical directors’ accreditations and qualifications, the facilities’ accreditations and practices and overall contributions to the field of sleep medicine.

The Center for Sleep Medicine is one of only a few sleep centers in New Jersey accredited by The American Academy of Sleep Medicine and provides diagnosis and treatment for a variety of sleep disorders and ailments in adults and children age 4 and up. The importance of sound sleep and the disorders that affect sleep have been increasingly recognized in recent years. One such disorder, sleep apnea, is a serious, potentially life-threatening breathing problem which affects an estimated 20 million Americans. Sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems over time, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and weight gain.

The Center provides cutting-edge testing technology and allows for patients to sleep overnight or during the day in private hotel-like rooms so a sleep study can be done. These studies are non-invasive and record 16 different channels of information, including; sleep pattern, heart rate, brain waves, oxygen level and muscle tone. Some of the most common disorders that may be studied include: sleep apnea, disruptive leg movements, night terrors, Insomnia, and Narcolepsy. Once diagnosed, patients may be prescribed medication or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, or CPAP for short. CPAP is the most common treatment for moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea. All aspects of the testing process are handled at the Center, and results are forwarded to the patients’ referring physician to ensure a comprehensive treatment plan.

Patients can be referred by their physician to the Center or they can call directly for a physician referral. Most sleep studies are covered by insurance. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 732-360-4255 or visit http://www.rbmcsleepcenter.org.

Sleep Review: The Journal for Sleep Specialists is read by more than twenty thousand sleep and respiratory care professionals around the country and covers case reports, innovative research findings, business news and product and service introductions, as well as inspiring stories of sleep centers and useful ideas for improving operations.
