Sunset Sleep Disorder Center of Oxnard is the part of our practice that specializes in diagnosing and treating sleep related disorders. Our sleep center has earned accreditation from The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) The AASM is committed to ensuring that accredited facilities provide the highest quality of patient care.
The sleep center has most of the comforts of home with a private hotel style room with a queen sized bed, cable television, bathroom and shower.
Most sleep disorders can be effectively treated once they have been accurately diagnosed.
A sleep study, called polysomnography, is a non-invasive procedure that monitors sleep patterns. A digital video records the event. Electrodes are applied to the patient's head, face, chest and legs to record brainwaves, eye and limb movements, heart rate, breathing and snoring. We also monitor the level of oxygen in the blood and the movement of the chest and abdomen. This process and all of the equipment used is painless to the patient.
Sleep studies are performed by qualified sleep technologists who carefully set-up and explain the procedures. The technologist monitors the patient throughout the study in an area separate from the patient's sleep room.
