Your overall health is our top priority.

Our Center was founded by Dr. Jose Medina-Bairan, a board certified in Sleep Disorders physician, and currently directed by Dr. J. Gabriel Medina-Smester who trained in Sleep Medicine in the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial, Miami VAMC and University Hospitals; and is board certified in Sleep Disorders.

 

Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the most important ways people can stay healthy. But for many people, achieving this seems like an impossible dream.

At Maranatha Medical Plaza, our sleep diagnostic center can help you achieve that restful sleep your body needs. We can diagnose and care for sleep disorders like obstructive and central sleep apnea, narcolepsy, parasomnias, insomnias, and many others. 

 

After a thorough evaluation by our medical director or at the request of a consulting physician, we can perform several different tests. 

Our four-bed sleep laboratories contain the necessary equipment to perform tests like sleep studies or polysomnography (PSG), multiple sleep latency tests (MSLT) and maintenance of wakefulness tests (MWT).

A goodnights rest is essential to your overall health & wellness, let our sleep center help you sleep better.

Polysomnography is used to diagnose sleep disorders. It records your brain waves, the oxygen level in your blood, your heart rate, breathing, and eye and leg movements. 

Patients who are scheduled for polysomnography in our sleep center arrive in the evenings and stay throughout the night. You are invited to bring whatever you need for your typical bedtime routine, including your nightclothes.

Each patient has their own sleeping room. During the night, you’ll be monitored by a low-light video camera. 

Once you are ready for bed, the technologist will apply sensors to your scalp, temples and other areas. These are connected to a computer by wires which are long enough that they won’t keep you from moving around during the night. 

Don’t worry if you don’t sleep as well as you do at home. You will most likely sleep long enough to get accurate results.

 

Multiple sleep latency tests are often ordered for people who are excessively sleepy during the day. These tests are sometimes called the daytime nap study. They measure how quickly you fall asleep during the day.

For these tests, you’ll come to our sleep center during normal working hours. These tests often take an entire day. You’ll be asked to try to fall asleep in a dark and quiet environment, the test will measure how long it takes for you to fall asleep if you do. The test will be repeated several times during the day.

 

Maintenance of wakefulness tests measures how well you can stay awake and alert during the day. These tests can also reveal how well the treatment you are receiving for your sleep disorder is working.

These tests are often done a day or so after polysomnography. In this test, you’ll sit in a quiet, comfortable room. All you have to do is try to stay awake as long as you can. The test will be repeated several times during the day.

 

Also, we likewise have a CPAP Clinic for our patients who use CPAP devices. 

The CPAP clinic focuses on educating patients about their sleep disorder and its treatment. Under the supervision of our medical director, our certified respiratory therapist addresses any issues that you may have with your device. The respiratory therapist also encourages patients to use the CPAP regularly, so that it provides you with the maximum benefit in reducing the impact of your sleep disorder.
