Sleep Medicine:

Disruptions in sleep can be caused by a variety of issues, from teeth grinding (bruxism) to nightmares. When a person suffers from difficulty in sleeping with no obvious cause, it is referred to as insomnia. In addition, sleep disorders may also cause sufferers to sleep excessively, a condition known as hypersomnia. At Royal Bahrain Hospital,we have expertise in the diagnosis and management of clinical conditions that occur during sleep, that disturb sleep, or that are affected by disturbances in the wake-sleep cycle. Our specialists are skilled in the analysis and interpretation of comprehensive polysomnography and well-versed in emerging research and management of the sleep laboratory.
