Laboratory Description Our Sleep Clinic is a part of Department of Pulmonology and Immunology. It is the only sleep clinic in Lithuania which is organized under the guidance of respiratory physicians working together with a multidisciplinary team including head, neck and throat physicians, nutrition specialists, etc. As we are already working for 11 years, a large database has been collected. Over 200 diagnostic polysomnograms and over 100 manual titration procedures are being performed each year. Recently we have expanded our working facilities up to three diagnostic rooms. Besides managing sleep apnoea we examine and treat a lot of patients suffering from combined pathologies and the most complicated cases of sleep disordered breathing from all the country. Our research work is mostly based on obstructive sleep apnoea and snoring.
Additional Descriptors, Keywords Sleep disordered breathing, obstructive sleep apnoea
