Frye Sleep Center

If you experience any of the following, you may benefit from a sleep study:

  • Difficulty Falling Asleep or Staying Asleep
  • Pauses in Breathing or Loud Snoring
  • Falling Asleep at Inappropriate Times or Excessive Sleepiness During the Day

Our qualified sleep technologists alongside esteemed neurologists and pulmonologists at Frye Regional’s accredited Sleep Disorders Center can aid in diagnosing problems such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome and insomnia. They can also suggest treatments including devices such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), oral appliances, medications and psychotherapy.

Polysomngraphy for the Shift Worker 

Within the Sleep Center we perform night time polysomnography with Cpap/Bipap titrations, oxygen titration, capnography, and nocturnal seizure/REM behavioral disoders with expanded EEG monitoring. We have the capabilities to record very small infants to adults - even severely overweight adults - that are unable to receive sleep studies at other facilities.

For patients that have difficulty with CPAP/Bipap titrations, we offer a desensitization program that enables patients to come to the center and try different equipment to see what is most comfortable and effective. This enables patients that may have a history of claustrophobia to try CPAP before their scheduled appointment. Multiple Sleep Latency Tests (MSLT) and Maintenance of Wakefulness Tests (MWT) are also offered for patients that have normal sleep studies but continue to complain of excessive daytime somnulence and narcolepsy.
