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 brand new Nucleus Innovation Park - Downtown at 300 East Market Street, Ste. 490, 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 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
Titration of positive airway pressure as treatment for sleep disordered breathing
Nocturnal oxygen titration
Nocturnal Esophageal pH monitoring
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.
