It’s normal to have trouble falling or staying asleep now and then, but chronic sleeplessness can be a serious health issue.  If you’re experiencing a sleep disorder such as insomnia or sleep apnea, sleep specialists at Rush will help diagnose and treat your problem so you can get the rest you need.

The Sleep Disorders Service and Research Center includes experts in psychology, neurology and pulmonary medicine. The team consults with many other specialists at Rush, including sleep surgeons, to ensure optimal care for patients.

The sleep lab at Rush — used to analyze patients' sleep patterns — includes eight comfortable bedrooms with an advanced computer monitoring room.

Founded in 1978, the Sleep Disorders Service Center has treated more than 20,000 patients.

Rush also provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for children with sleep disorders.

When it's more than just a sleep disorder

If you are suffering from a combination of symptoms, including sleep disturbances, persistent sinus pain and pressure, breathing problems and/or coughing, you may benefit from the one-stop approach at the Rush Sinus, Allergy and Asthma Center.

The center, the first of its kind in the Chicago area, brings together specialists from allergy/immunology, laryngology, pulmonology, rhinology, sleep medicine and sleep surgery to care for people who have co-existing sinusitis, allergies, asthma and/or sleep apnea. When you have more than one of these conditions at the same time, effective treatment requires the expertise of more than one specialist. Our team coordinates all of your care, so you can get the relief you need to lead a full, active life.

Late-night snackers, beware. Research suggests that irregular sleeping and eating patterns are interacting factors that potentially affect obesity.
