Vermont Medical Sleep Disorder
What Are Sleep Disorders?
On average, a healthy adult needs approximately seven to eight hours of undisturbed sleep per night. However, many do not get sufficient sleep. Those with sleep disorders experience the persistent problem of going without the recommended amount of uninterrupted sleep, leading to a weakened immune system, increased anxiety, and possibly the worsening of pre-existing medical conditions.
The sleep cycle is highly important in maintaining well-being and a healthy immune system, and sleep disorders throw this into disarray. Little to no sleep can put a strain on professional and personal relationships, as we go through our day lethargic, unfocused & no clarity of mind.
Accreditation & Certification
American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) accreditation for sleep medicine facilities is the gold standard by which the medical community and the public can evaluate sleep medicine services. The AASM Standards for Accreditation ensure the highest quality of care.
Certification by the American Board of Sleep Medicine (ABSM) stands for the highest standard in clinical sleep medicine and sleep technology. Physicians, residents, PhDs and technologists who have achieved ABSM certification have demonstrated to their peers and to the public that they have the skills and knowledge essential for the delivery of excellent patient care. The ABSM believes higher standards for sleep medicine and sleep technology translate into better care for patients and greater accountability.
