As a Board Certified Sleep Specialist, Dr. Bane has the expertise to diagnosis and manage the clinical conditions that occur during sleep. Sleep medicine is the study, diagnosis, and treatment of patients (adult and pediatric) with disorders affecting sleep and daytime alertness. The most common sleep disorders are sleep apnea and insomnia. Others include snoring, narcolepsy, sleepwalking, and sleep related seizures.
Through the analysis and interpretation of comprehensive polysomnographs (sleep studies) Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, can be diagnosed and treated. Blockage of the airway can happen a few times a night or several hundred times per night. Sleep apnea can be managed with CPAP therapy. CPAP therapy supplies air through a mask worn during sleep which keeps the airway open.
