Sleep Better. Live Better.

Untreated sleep disorders can drastically affect your lifestyle, leading to an increased risk of stroke, heart attack, pulmonary hypertension and, in pregnant women, gestational diabetes and low birth weight. Sleep is essential to your overall health.  The good news is that most sleep disturbances can be treated. 

The Bristol Hospital Sleep Medicine program can diagnose your condition through the comfort of a diagnostic sleep study performed at our comfortable, state-of-the-art Sleep Center or from the convenience of your own home. 

Do you Have a Sleep Disorder?

Sleep disorders affect approximately 40 million Americans. Only about 5 percent of those individuals are ever diagnosed or treated for their condition. A sleep disorder is a condition that results in changes in the way that you sleep, ultimately impacting your health in a negative manner.

Some of the most common symptoms of a sleep apnea and other sleep disorders include:
  • Snoring
  • Excessive day-time sleepiness
  • Poor concentration
  • Problems falling asleep at night
  • Forgetfulness
  • Mood changes
  • Depression
  • Low sex drive
