A good night’s sleep determines the success of the next day
Take one or two nights’ time to determine the cause of your insomnia and/or snoring.
Causes and consequences of insomnia:
There are many causes for insomnia. Untreated, it can cause not only constant fatigue and reductions in performance, but also long-term effects such as stroke, heart attack, or immunodeficiencies.
Check up in the sleep lab:
It is important for you to not feel bothered by the measurement technology during the course of the study and to experience a comfortable atmosphere that is comparable to your nightly sleep at home.
The rooms at the Professor Sailer clinic offer a cozy, comfortable ambience while state-of-the-art measurement technology records your sleep in the background.
What happens when you close your eyes?
Are important phases of your sleep regularly interrupted by wake-up responses?
Is it possible that your nightly oxygen supply is threatened?
Are constrictions of your airways the cause?
The focuses of our study:
• Inability to fall asleep/sleep through the night
• Sleep-wake cycle disorders
• Loud snoring
• Sleep-related respiratory disorder, breathing interruptions (apnea)
• Oxygen saturation in the blood
• Restless leg syndrome
• Sleepwalking, nightmares
• Nightly epilepsy
• Grinding the teeth or clenching the jaw during sleep
