Sleep Disorders

Introduction to the Scope of Cleveland Clinic's Sleep Disorders Center

Cleveland Clinic’s Sleep Disorders Center, established in 1978, was among the first in the nation dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep and wake disorders across the entire age spectrum. Accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the Sleep Disorders Center provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to patient care with specialists in Neurology, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Psychiatry and Psychology, Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, and Otolaryngology, with a total of 130 caregivers. The program has 50 beds in 7 sleep laboratory locations within the Cleveland Clinic health system.

Reflective of the multifaceted and multidisciplinary strengths of the program, the 2022 Sleep Disorders Center outcomes will include: integration of actigraphy monitoring in the clinical program, continued bolstering of the home sleep apnea testing (HSAT) program, impact of standard and innovative treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and patient-reported outcomes, correlates of post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 sleep disturbances, sex-specific differences in sleep disturbance in migraineurs, sleep cluster subtypes and atrial fibrillation, sleep health disparities, restless legs syndrome pharmacologic intervention effect on outcomes, influence of behavioral sleep medicine program-led cognitive behavioral therapy targeted towards insomnia on patient-reported outcomes, the use of machine learning to predict multiple sleep latency test results based on polysomnography, the growth in care delivery of pediatric sleep medicine, routine monitoring of the flexor digitorum superficialis during polysomnography for REM Behavior Disorder diagnosis, the development of a Hypersomnia Carepath with safety measures embedded, and participation in many pharmacotherapy trials.
