Sleep Medicine

Bed

The University of Chicago is the longtime leader in the field of sleep disorders. The world’s very first sleep laboratory, in fact, was established at the University of Chicago, in the late 1920’s. Our physicians and researchers published the first major textbook on sleep and later revolutionized the field with the discovery of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, as well as developed the technique of all-night sleep recording. Our physicians and researchers have performed groundbreaking research on normal human sleep, narcolepsy, metabolic and cardiovascular impacts of sleep deprivation and obstructive sleep apnea.

In our modern, eight bed facility with state-of-the-art technology and handicap accessibility, your patient will undergo testing in a comfortable, private bedroom with a full-size bed and satellite TV. Amenities such as shower, hair dryers, snacks, full tea and coffee service are available in the morning.
