Sleep Disorders Center
Once a patient has been evaluated for a sleep disorder at Danbury Hospital, a number of support options are available.
Many Sleep Disorders Center patients are diagnosed with sleep apnea and treated with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). This involves wearing a pressurized nasal mask during sleep. Variations of this treatment provided at our center for selected cases of severe or complex sleep apnea include BiPAP and Adaptive Servo Ventilation (ASV).
The Sleep Disorders Center employs daytime sleep technologists who are available to provide CPAP education and desensitization for patients encountering problems in treatment. Scheduled visits include mask fitting, troubleshooting sources of common CPAP complaints, testing of CPAP equipment, and other supportive care.
A.W.A.K.E. Support Group
The Sleep Disorders Center also partners with the American Sleep Apnea Association to host A.W.A.K.E. (Alert, Well, And Keeping Energetic), a bi-monthly sleep apnea support meeting attended by patients and their families as a means of receiving important updates on sleep apnea and advances in CPAP technology. Members of the Sleep Disorders Center medical and technical staff present information and are available to assist individuals with questions and concerns they may have regarding their diagnosis and treatment.
