Help! I Keep Waking Up at the Same Time Every Night

Help! I Keep Waking Up at the Same Time Every Night

Waking up too early or several times throughout the night can lead to persistent daytime sleepiness, mood swings, and other issues that interfere with daily functioning.

At Stat Care Pulmonary and Sleep, we specialize in comprehensive sleep studies to better understand what’s causing you to wake up frequently at night.

Our sleep specialists, Ashok Tyagi, DO, CPE, and Himanshu Chandarana, MD, personalize a care plan to improve the quantity and quality of your sleep. We focus on strategies that address the root cause of your sleep issues so you can function at optimum levels during the day.

Causes of waking up at night

Your circadian rhythm is a natural biological process that regulates your sleep patterns. When something disrupts this process, you may wake up one or more times throughout the night.

Factors that can influence your quality of sleep include:

You might also be prone to sleep disturbances if you don’t follow a healthy sleep routine each night. Strive to go to bed at the same time each night, wake up at the same time each morning, and turn off electronics at least one hour before bed.

If left untreated, frequent sleep interruptions can increase your risk of illness and diminished quality of life. We offer in-home and in-lab sleep studies to identify the cause so you can get the treatment you need to sleep soundly.

Why a sleep study is important

A sleep study, or sleep testing, is a noninvasive monitoring process to evaluate your body movements and breathing patterns while you sleep. Stat Care Pulmonary and Sleep offers two types of sleep studies to assess the factors involved in interrupting your sleep:

In-home sleep study

You can participate in an in-home sleep study in the comfort of your own home. Our providers give you equipment to monitor your movements and breathing while you sleep. They interpret the results during a follow-up visit to determine treatment.

In-lab sleep study

An in-lab sleep study (polysomnography) is a diagnostic procedure in our comfortable, cutting-edge sleep lab.

During your overnight stay, you relax and prepare for sleep like you usually would. Our technicians connect sensors to your body that record details about your breathing patterns, brain waves, body movements, and heart rate.

In-lab sleep studies allow our team to watch you on a low-light camera to monitor your movements while you sleep. We’re there throughout the night in case you need anything.

When you wake in the morning and your sleep study is complete, we remove the sensors so you can return to your usual routine. Our sleep specialists review the results of your study and contact you to discuss treatment options.

Customized treatment plans are available

Our physicians treat various sleep disorders and can create a care plan based on your needs and challenges. Your plan might include one or more treatments like:

We monitor your progress throughout the treatment process to ensure you get the high-quality sleep you deserve.
