At Pacific Sleep Medicine, we are dedicated to helping you sleep well. Pacific Sleep Medicine operates a full service, state-of-the-art sleep laboratory. We are housed within
the Pacific Medical Associates building.
We have a two-bed sleep lab on site and our focus is on the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea. Our sleep studies are read by highly trained board-certified sleep medicine specialists. In addition, we offer CPAP titration if you are diagnosed with sleep apnea.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing during sleep. It is an extremely dangerous and potentially life-threatening condition if left untreated.
Signs of Sleep Apnea include: snoring, excessive daytime fatigue, high blood pressure, obesity, frequent headaches, and frequent nighttime urination.
Sleep Apnea is diagnosed during a sleep study. A sleep study involves patient’s sleeping overnight at our sleep laboratory in Bellevue. Your sleep study will be attended by a sleep technologist who monitors your sleep pattern through the night. Sleep studies occur only at night, and are completed early in the morning in time for you to go straight to work or home before rush hour. Our Sleep Medicine physician will review your study and generate a report. If you are diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, we may prescribe a CPAP machine for you. CPAP is an effective treatment for Sleep Apnea and is most often life-saving.
We accept all major medical insurances including Medicare and Medicaid.
