Sleep Medicine Services
Welcome to the Diablo Service Area Department of Sleep Medicine at Kaiser Permanente's Martinez Medical Offices. Our team of highly skilled Sleep Technologists, Respiratory Therapists and Sleep Physicians are dedicated to providing you the best care in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. In most cases the first step in the evaluation of sleep disorders is to check for evidence of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Even a mild degree of Sleep Apnea can result in daytime fatigue and problems with concentration. More severe Sleep Apnea has been linked to a variety of health issues, including high blood pressure, high blood sugars due to Insulin resistance, and increased risks of heart attack and stroke. Testing and treatment of Sleep Apnea is usually done in our outpatient sleep lab.
Some patients will require further evaluation and the outpatient sleep lab may arrange for an overnight sleep study at one of our Centers for Sleep Medicine in Martinez
or San Jose.
