Sleep Disorder


The Pulmonary and Sleep Center of the Valley has many treatment options available to help you breathe easier and sleep better.
We’ll clearly explain your treatment options so that you can make an informed choice for the treatment(s) that work best for your needs and lifestyle.

Auto-Titrating Pap (APAP)

APAP automatically varies the delivered pressure to eliminate apnea, hypopnea, snoring, and airflow limitation. Upper and lower pressure limits are set by the clinician, and the machine then searches for, and delivers the lowest effective pressure in any circumstance (e.g. Supine versus lateral sleep; rapid eye movement (REM) versus nonREM sleep).

Auto-Titrating Pap

Adaptive Servoventilation (ASV)

ASV was developed for the treatment of Cheyne-Stokes Breathing (CSB), a pattern of slow waxing and waning of respiratory effort and airflow, but may be used for any patient manifesting central respiratory events accompanied by low CO2 levels (hypocapnia). It works by stabilizing the patient’s ventilation through the elimination of central apnea.

Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BPAP)

BPAP delivers separately adjustable pressure upon inhalation and exhalation. The difference between these pressures provides a level of ventilatory pressure support that is useful in augmenting ventilation in patients with obstructive sleep apnea, associated hypoventilation, or hypoventilation syndromes.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

CPAP is the most frequently prescribed treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. CPAP devices provide just enough positive air pressure inside your throat to keep your airway open. An open airway eliminates snoring and obstructive respiratory events. Once treated, you will enjoy a much more restful night’s sleep, and so will your sleeping partner.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

In cases where a patient suffers from insomnia, cognitive behavioral therapy may help to restore healthy patterns of rest. This therapeutic approach utilizes a number of strategies to change thought patterns and habits surrounding sleep and create positive associations with rest, thereby encouraging patients to sleep better.

Oral Advancement Device

In cases wherein a patient’s obstructive sleep apnea is not severe, some individuals may benefit from an orally-worn device called a TAP®, or Thornton Adjustable Positioner. The TAP advances your lower jaw, thus helping to open up your airway during sleep to help reduce or eliminate your obstructive respiratory events and snoring.

Volume-Assured Pressure Support (VAPS)

VAPS units act as bi-level pressure support ventilators to mitigate hypoventilation by providing a constant tidal volume, the volume of air inspired or expired in a single breath during regular breathing. VAPS units automatically adjust pressure support to maintain an optimal consistent tidal volume.

Sleep Hygiene Improvement

Sleep hygiene refers to the practice of creating sleep environments and habits that support healthy rest. This approach addresses a number of aspects related to rest. From creating a soothing bedroom environment to establishing a firm bedtime routine, these habits can make it easier for patients to go to sleep, sleep better, and feel more refreshed in the morning.
