Entrust a good night’s rest with the sleep experts at Island ENT. We are the the only sleep lab in the mid- to lower-Keys. We treat all adult sleep disorders including sleep-disorder breathing (snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome, and obstructive sleep apnea), movement disorders (restless leg syndrome), insomnias, and excessive daytime sleepiness.


An estimated one in five Americans have some degree of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is a serious health condition characterized by repeated stopping or slowing of breathing due to airway collapse. This can occur hundreds of times while you sleep, reducing your quality of sleep and making you feel tired during the day. Untreated OSA can contribute to high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, workplace or motor vehicle accidents, and significant loss of productivity.

Medical and surgical options are available for the management of snoring and OSA. Medical options include continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment, oral appliance therapy, positional therapy, and weight loss. Treatment effectiveness depends on how long and how consistently you follow your doctor’s plan.

Sleep Study
Sleep disorders are categorized as:
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
  • Central Sleep Apnea
  • Mixed Sleep Apnea
  • Hypersomnia (Daytime Sleepiness)
  • REM Sleep Behavior Disorder
  • Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders
  • Periodic Limb Movement Disorder
  • Shift Work Sleep Disorder
  • Narcolepsy

Sleep disorders in general, and OSA in particular, is difficult to diagnose without a sleep test.

Most individuals do not know that OSA is found as a possible underlying cause in new onset atrial fibrillation or other cardiac arrythmias, hypertension, depression, and many other chronic conditions. Therefore, obtaining a diagnosis through testing and treating the OSA can dramatically improve the overall sleep, as well as other medical conditions for which patients are being treated.

Sleep and Snoring Issues

Snoring can also be a sign of a more serious problem, known as obstructive sleep apnea. With sleep apnea, the relaxed muscles at the back of the throat causes the throat to close, which stops breathing, typically from 20 seconds to up to three minutes.

Most sleep apnea sufferers experience this cycle of snoring, apnea and awakening hundreds or more times a night. Sleep apnea has a higher incidence men age over the age of 40 and older, people with a family history of sleep apnea and in postmenopausal women.
If you suffer from debilitating snoring or think you may have sleep apnea, please contact our office and schedule an appointment with one of our professionals.
