Boulder County's Only Accredited Sleep Program
Boulder Community Health has partnered with the
Colorado Sleep Institute (CSI) to create an integrated sleep center where all sleep-related services
are available at a single facility, including:
- Office visits with a sleep specialist
- Home and laboratory sleep testing
- Insomnia treatment
- Oral appliances
- Continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP)
Our Sleep Diagnostic Center in
Boulder is the only sleep lab in Boulder County fully accredited by the
American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), the professional medical association dedicated to assuring quality care
for patients. The AASM sets standards and promotes excellence in treatment,
education and research. Accreditation ensures that:
- Our sleep technologists are certified and participate in on-going education
on the latest advancements in treating sleep disorders
- Our center is equipped with the latest tools to diagnose sleep and accurately
measure disorders that may occur during sleep
- When necessary, diagnostic results and treatment recommendations can be
delivered 24 hours after a sleep study
Patients receive consultations with board-certified specialists and may
undergo overnight sleep studies. We then develop a holistic treatment
plan that can include therapeutic devices, oxygen or cognitive-behavioral
therapies, along with surgical or medication treatments, nutrition changes
or acupuncture. Our staff can clinically monitor therapy devices, such
as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), and provide analysis of
CPAP effectiveness for patients.
When necessary, diagnostic results and treatment recommendations can be
delivered 24 hours after a sleep study.
Our facilities offer comfortable, home-like settings. Each room has a queen-size
premium mattress fitted with high-quality linens, private bathroom with
shower, flat screen HD television, gourmet coffee and a personal wardrobe
closet. These amenities serve an important clinical purpose: recreating
the comforts of home helps patients experience a better, truer sleep quality
that gives clinicians more accurate data.

Questions to Ask When Selecting a Sleep Disorder Center
Does the medical staff consist of a wide range of board-certified sleep
Properly diagnosing and treating sleep disorders requires a wide range
of medical expertise because of the numerous types of disorders that exist.
Sleep problems may be caused by medical, neurological or behavioral issues.
The CSI staff consists of neurologists, internists, pediatricians and
pulmonologists who are also board-certified sleep specialists and have
the necessary expertise to diagnose and treat all varieties of sleep disorders.
Does the sleep center offer a full range of services or just deliver a
Select a center that offers both evaluations by specially trained physicians
and a sleep laboratory staffed by registered sleep technologists. Patients
who require initial evaluation by a sleep specialist may not require an
over-night sleep study, but if they do they will likely receive a more
comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan since they will already be
working with a sleep physician. The CSI sleep specialists have the medical
expertise to develop treatment plans with highly successful outcomes.
Patients receive continued monitoring even after they receive treatment.
