Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Treatment Options for Sleep Disorders

Treating a sleep disorder depends largely on the type of sleep problem the patient is experiencing. At Atlantic Health Sleep Centers at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Chilton Medical Center and Hackettstown Medical Center, we treat:

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
- The most common treatments for OSA are dental appliances or a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, depending upon the severity of the condition.
Insomnia
- Cognitive behavioral therapy, biofeedback, sleep restriction therapy and relaxation techniques are all ways of treating the inability to sleep or stay asleep.
Restless legs syndrome (RLS) and periodic limb movement disorder
- Alleviating sleep movement disorders usually requires a symptom-based approach to treatment. This includes massaging the leg muscles, taking hot baths before bed or applying heating pads to the affected area. Medications and supplements, such as B12 and iron, may also be prescribed.
Narcolepsy
- Sleep physicians develop personalized treatment plans to manage this condition.
