Sleep disorders include conditions such as snoring and insomnia and potentially serious disorders such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome. Both men and women who have a sleep disorder often awake feeling groggy and may experience daytime drowsiness or suffer from brain fog, or confusion. Sleep disorders that are undiagnosed can cause problems with an individual's daily routine. People with obstructive sleep apnea stop breathing for short periods of time and are likely to experience a wide range of health issues.
MTA employees will undergo sleep apnea screenings at one of CHS/USD sleep medicine centers in Nassau /Suffolk/NYC/ Brooklyn/Queens and Rockland County. All testing at CHS/USD Sleep Centers is conducted by certified technologists and interpreted by board certified sleep specialists.
