The Metropolitan Center for Sleep Medicine
More than 40 million people in the United States suffer from sleep-related disorders such as snoring, fragmented sleep and sleep apnea. However, only about five percent have been diagnosed and treated according to the National Sleep Disorders Research Center. Most people are not aware that sleep ailments not only affect daily activity and lifestyle, but also can be associated with other more serious medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, premature heart disease, stroke and even sudden cardiac death. In fact, sleep apnea, a condition causing patients to stop breathing during sleep, may be a risk factor for heart disease.
At the Metropolitan Center for Sleep Medicine, an expert multi-disciplinary medical team will evaluate and treat all of types of sleep problems.
