Sleep disorders are medical conditions where there is interference with normal sleep patterns. For some individuals this can be very disruptive affecting physical, mental and emotional aspects of their lives. Poor sleep can leave the person feeling unrefreshed and lethargic the next day and if left untreated  some sleep disorders can be a contributing factor to heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. The effect on one's ability to perform  daily tasks such as driving or concentrating at work can be profound.

 

At the Galway Chest Clinic we offer comprehensive investigation and management of sleep disorders in order to ensure that our clients and their partners achieve the most restful and peaceful night's sleep possible. Our  multidisciplinary team will guide you through assessment, diagnosis and follow-up at our dedicated sleep clinics where you will have full access to the most cutting edge technology.
