We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
A good night’s sleep is no luxury. It’s vital to your health.
Lack of sleep can affect everything about your quality of life, from causing fatigue and irritability to making you gain weight. Sleep issues have an impact on your job performance, your driving ability and even your relationships.
They can even be life-threatening: Did you know sleep apnea may trigger high blood pressure, heart failure and stroke?
An estimated 60 million people in this country suffer from sleep disorders. If you’re one of them, the Sleep Disorders Center at North Shore Medical Center can help, providing evaluations, consultation and high-quality care for
a wide range of sleep disorders.
Common sleep disorder symptoms include:
Difficulty falling or staying asleep
Restless legs syndrome
Circadian rhythm disorders
Obesity-related sleep breathing disorder
Enuresis (bed-wetting) and pediatric obstructive sleep apnea
You may need an overnight sleep study, or polysomnogram, for a proper diagnosis of your sleeping issues. The test monitors your vital signs while you sleep including your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation levels and brain waves.
If you are diagnosed with a sleep disorder, various treatment options are available. The Sleep Disorders Center strives to provide personalized service to patients and their families.
