Sleep disorders - modern sleep medicine knows effective solutions and therapies

Restful sleep is the basis of our physical and mental performance.

Extraordinary mental and physical stress can lead to problems falling asleep and staying asleep. Even in times of Corona, every tenth person in Germany sleeps worse. If there is a permanent disturbance in sleep behavior over a period of at least 3-4 weeks, medicine speaks of a sleep disorder, the causes of which should be clarified. The consequences during the day can cause a considerable impairment of physical and mental performance. Those affected often fail to notice symptoms such as daytime sleepiness or a variety of mood disorders, while a permanent lack of sleep can lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity or heart failure, among other things.  

In sleep medicine, the only way to reliably diagnose sleep disorders was to go to the sleep laboratory. In my practice, I try to be sensitive to the wishes and needs of my patients. In a conventional sleep lab, the patient spends the night in an unfamiliar environment - wired up to many electrodes. A situation that does not do justice to the natural sleep environment at home. Experience reports in practice confirm that many of my patients found the sensors on the body sleep disturbing.

My solution approach: A "small sleep laboratory" can even take place as a "sleep laboratory at home". New technical methods make it possible to perform this examination in the home environment. Therapy with a CPAP device (CPAP therapy involves pumping room air into the airways via a mask at a slight positive pressure during sleep) can also be performed at home and discussed in the comfort of the doctor's office. More information and advice is available in the office.
