Sleep Medicine

Sleep Medicine

With today's busy lifestyles, many people think that feeling tired is just part of life. However, tiredness during the day may be more than just a matter of having a full schedule. It may be a sign of a sleep disorder. More than one-third of the population has trouble sleeping. And, more than 100 sleep disorders have been identified, affecting all sexes, races and age groups.

The effects of sleep disorders range from mere annoyance to life threatening occurrences. Sleep disorders have been found to play a role in high blood pressure and heart disease. A good night sleep is one of the most underrated aspects of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Research has shown that sleep can help:

  • Improve memory
  • Boost energy levels
  • Reduce stress
  • Regulate moods
  • Battle obesity
  • Strengthen immune system
  • Decrease risks for cardiovascular diseases

Virtua Sleep Centers in Mt. Holly, Voorhees and Washington Township offer full-spectrum diagnostic testing and medical evaluation to support patients – both adults and children – suffering from sleep disorders. The facilities provide medical evaluation and a full range of diagnostic testing, including sleep studies that measure:

  • Heart rate
