Take the Epworth Sleepiness Quiz

An estimated 40 million people in the United States are affected by a sleep disorder. Common problems include:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Narcolepsy
  • Insomnia
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Snoring
  • Movement disorders
  • Extreme sleepiness

Diagnosis

Sleep disorders can be deadly serious. Seven in 10 Americans have them. Yet 95 percent go untreated and undiagnosed. They result in lost productivity, medical expenses, sick leave and property damage. Most sleep problems and sleep disorders can be treated and managed safely and effectively. Our goal is to help people overcome these problems as quickly and effectively as possible.

The Chesapeake Regional Sleep Center is committed to your comfort. In fact, the more comfortable you are, the better able we are to diagnose your sleep problems. That's why each of our tastefully appointed sleep rooms includes a queen-size bed, ceiling fan, telephone, flat-screen television and handicapped-accessible bathroom. And staff members are always on hand to help keep you comfortable. Using high-tech sensors, we'll chart your heart rate, breathing, brain activity, blood-oxygen level, and muscle and eye movements. Once we diagnose your sleep problem, we'll develop a customized treatment plan that treats you to the good night's sleep that is so essential to your good health.
