ELIZABETH — Staff Members of the Trinitas Comprehensive Sleep Disorders Center observed Sleep Technologists Appreciation Week (Oct. 6 – 12) by sharing information about sleep disorders with more than 75 visitors and employees on the Williamson Street campus.
Passersby learned about the importance of healthy sleep for adults as well as children. For adults, sleep issues can cause severe fatigue during the day and have been connected to traffic accidents, some fatal, as reported by the National Sleep Foundation. Children who suffer from sleep problems can exhibit restlessness and problems with focusing on school which can then result in overall poor performance.
The Trinitas sleep technologists (sleep polysomnographers) provided information about how the most common forms of disturbed sleep such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome can be diagnosed through a sleep study that can be conducted at Trinitas’ fully-accredited Academy of Sleep Medicine sleep centers in Elizabeth and at Homewood Suites by Hilton located at the Linden Cranford border.
