Sleep Disorders

The University of Louisville Physicians - Sleep Center includes a state-of-the-art sleep lab set in a private, comfortable hotel suite that simulates a home setting and encourages restful sleep, and is Louisville's only dedicated sleep center accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).

Staffed by specialists who are Board Certified in Sleep Medicine by the AASM, our sleep specialists evaluate and treat a wide variety of sleep complaints and disorders.

Located at the Marriott Residence Inn at 333 East Market Street, 6th Floor, Louisville, KY 40202, the U of L Physicians - Sleep Center's philosophy endorses a multi-disciplinary approach to sleep disorders integrating sleep medicine, pulmonary medicine, psychology, neurology, otolaryngology, oral maxillofacial surgery, dental sleep medicine, and bariatric surgery.

On a patient's first visit, we assess medical history and conduct a physical exam. We may ask patients to maintain a sleep diary for several weeks.

If a sleep study is recommended, patients will spend one or two nights in a private, comfortable hotel room adjacent to a room equipped with sophisticated equipment for monitoring sleep stages, patterns, heart activity, blood oxygen levels and body movement.

Within the lab, patients can be evaluated for a number of sleep disorders, including:

  • Nocturnal polysomnography with end tidal CO2 monitoring

  • Multiple Sleep Latency testing

  • Maintenance of Wakefulness testing

  • Seizure monitoring

  • Titration of positive airway pressure as treatment for sleep disordered breathing

  • Nocturnal oxygen titration

  • Nocturnal Esophageal pH monitoring

  • Actigraphy

  • Initiation and titration of Non-invasive mechanical ventilation for patients with chronic respiratory failure including patients with neuromuscular diseases.

  • Adjustment of diaphragmatic pacer settings for patients with neuromuscular disorders.

In addition to diagnostic services, the U of L Physicians - Sleep Center will provide on-site clinical evaluations with same-day service available through our team of sleep physician providers, and our dedicated advanced registered nurse practitioners.
