CANANDAIGUA- Thompson Health’s Sleep Disorders Center of the Finger Lakes has doubled the number of its sleep-study suites from two beds to four beds. Thompson has the only accredited sleep center in the Finger Lakes and is only one of six in the United States with new Compumetics Profusion 3 software, which provides the most accurate sleep study results available.

Sleep disorders have a significant impact on a patient’s comfort as well as their overall health and safety. For these reasons, the awareness of sleep problems and patients’ willingness to seek treatments is growing. With the rapidly rising demand for sleep studies, patients are on sleep study waiting lists. In response to this need, The Sleep Center expanded their beds from two to four and extended their hours of operation.

“There are a lot of people with sleep disorders, and fortunately we can help the majority of them,” says Joe Modrak, MD. Dr. Modrak is Medical Director for the center and board certified to treat sleep disorders. He estimates that 85 percent of those with sleep disorders have apnea, a condition that interrupts breathing and can cause a sleeper to wake hundreds of times during the night.

If you are having difficulty sleeping, please consult your doctor. While many problems can be corrected through lifestyle changes, your doctor may recommend you have a sleep study. Go to  www.thompsonhealth.com to see how a sleep study works.
