Sleep clinics

Many people experience sleep disorders at some point in their lives. If the problem is not treated in time, it can become chronic.

Thanks to our services, people:

  • improve their quality of life;
  • learn to understand and manage their sleep disorders;
  • can receive treatments that are tailored to their needs.

Although sleep apnea (pauses in breathing during sleep) is the most well-known sleep disorder, over 84 sleep disorders exist. Here are some examples:

  • insomnia: the person has difficulty falling asleep or getting enough sleep;
  • narcolepsy: the person suddenly falls asleep at any time during the day;
  • circadian rhythm disorders: the person falls asleep at the wrong time of day or is unable to sleep when they should (may be caused by night-time work or jet lag);
  • parasomnia: sleepwalking, etc.

Sleep disorders often have a direct impact on physical and mental health. Some play a major role in the prevalence of:

  • hypertension;
  • heart disease;
  • strokes;
  • cancers.



What services are offered?

A physician specializing in sleep disorders provides consultations on site or remotely through the telehealth system.

Tests are performed to diagnose and pick the appropriate treatment:

In the patient's home:

  • nocturnal oximetry (test that measures the amount of oxygen in the blood during the night);
  • ambulatory polygraph (test that measures breathing during sleep).

At the Sleep Laboratory:

  • polysomnography (in addition to measuring breathing, measures other signals such as heart rhythm, brain activity, and movements to recognize the various stages of sleep);
  • daytime tests:
    • measurement of the time required to fall asleep;
    • maintenance of wakefulness test (MWT).

  • Residents of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, northeastern Nova Scotia and southeastern Québec.

The clinic is located in Moncton, at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre.
