Sleep Disorder Center

Coastal Medical Sleep Disorders Center is a medical group practice facility.  The sleep disorders center’s medical director, Peter Karczmar, M.D. and the sleep disorders center have been providing sleep services to the Rhode Island community for over 10 years. 

It began in East Providence, Rhode Island as a two bed facility and expanded to four beds.  The addition of Michael A. Pomerantz, M.D., and his successful completion of his sleep board certification, provided additional resources to meet the growing demand for sleep services.

The sleep disorders center offers board certified physicians, the latest technology, registered and experienced technologists and support personnel to meet the increasing demand for sleep services.

The essential element in this study is to make the patient as comfortable as possible. Sensitive to that need, Coastal Medical has actually set up a bedroom with all of the comforts of home.

A technician in the office administers and attends the sleep study (also called polysomnography). To prepare for this study, electrodes are attached to the patient's body to measure such things as brain electrical activity, rapid eye movement, respiration and airflow, muscle activity, blood oxygen level, heart rate and limb movement during sleep.

The results of this test are reviewed by the physician and used to diagnose disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea and obstructive hypopnea.
