Welcome to the world of sleep disorders. Imagine tossing and turning all night – every night. Exhausted by morning, struggling through the day, longing for a good night’s sleep. This is a reality for many. As a Pulmonologist at Bridgewater Respacare, I witness this story each day. Those constantly fighting the invisible battle of sleep disorders. But, there’s hope – Pulmonologists can help. Stay with me as we explore how.
Understanding Sleep Disorders
First, let’s understand what sleep disorders are. They’re conditions that prevent a person from getting restful sleep and, as a result, can cause daytime sleepiness and dysfunction. There are numerous types – insomnia, sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy, and more. Sounds daunting, right? But don’t despair – help is at hand.
The Role of a Pulmonologist
You might wonder – what does a lung specialist have to do with sleep disorders? A lot, actually. Pulmonologists are proficient in respiratory disorders – and many of these are linked to sleep issues. For instance, sleep apnea, a condition where breathing stops and starts during sleep, falls right under their domain.
