The pulmonary medicine division has a certified diagnostic sleep laboratory designated to evaluate and treat patients with sleep apnea, snoring, nighttime breathing symptoms, abnormal sleep behavior, narcolepsy and other sleep disorders.
The Pulmonary faculty with expertise in sleep medicine collaborates with the Sleep Diagnostic Laboratory and provides polysomnography interpretation. The patients are referred for the diagnosis of sleep apnea syndrome, nocturnal hypoxemia related to chronic obstructive or restrictive pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure. They also assess the efficacy of various therapeutic interventions such as nasal CPAP, oxygen, and upper airway surgery. Dr. Gleeson also provides clinical expertise to Williamsport in the form of the Medical Director of the Susquehanna Health Laboratory for sleep interpretation.
