Sleep Disorders Center

A department of Rex Hospital

Is it hard for you to get out of bed in the morning?
Do you hit the snooze button over and over again?
Are you feeling irritable or stressed?
Are you often tired during the day?
If so, you might have a sleep disorder.

Sleep Disorders from A to Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Rex Sleep Disorders Center specializes in diagnosis and treatment of periodic limb movement, narcolepsy, and sleep apnea, a serious and potentially dangerous condition characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep. Symptoms of sleep apnea include:
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Loud snoring and gasping
  • Learning and memory dysfunction
  • Falling asleep at inopportune times

In order to fully understand sleep patterns and diagnose any problems, various brain activities, body systems and their relationships must be monitored throughout the night. Through an overnight sleep study at Rex Sleep Disorders Center, a recording of physiological measurements will identify your different sleep stages and classify various sleep problems.

A place of rest

All overnight sleep studies are conducted under the direction of a Medical Director who is board-certified in sleep medicine, and trained sleep technologists. Rex now has five convenient locations for sleep testing: Raleigh, Cary, Knightdale, Wakefield and Garner. All five locations have full size beds as well as cable television for your comfort. Each of the rooms are similar to a hotel room, offering a tranquil night's sleep to all patients.

If you think that you may have a sleep disorder, contact your doctor to schedule an appointment with Rex Sleep Disorders Center by calling (919) 784-3419. If you are already a patient and have any questions about your sleep problems or a scheduled test, call the sleep center directly at (919) 784-1465.
