Our Sleep Clinic

The heart of our sleep laboratories is the Christian Guilleminault Schlaflabor in Dortmund, which was founded in 1995. It is one of the largest private clinics for sleep medicine and research, with its eight Somnografie-Plätzen. The Dortmund Sleep Clinic has been directly located at the Phoenix Lake, the new local recreation area in Dortmund, since 2013.

Therapeutic options

Summary of the different kinds of sleep diseases and their therapeutic options.

  • Insomnia
    The consideration of individual causes must always be the focal point of a successful therapy. Sometimes it already helps to change your sleeping habits. In other cases a light therapy alleviates the symptoms. more
  • Narcolepsy
    Currently, narcolepsy can be both diagnosed and treated very well. The disease cannot be cured completely, however now different medicinal and behavioural therapy concepts are available that enable a largely unalloyed life. more
  • Restless Legs Syndrom and PLMD
    „Household remedies“ can already lead to an improvement of the symptoms in easier cases. For example baths, massages, sport, but also the avoidance of caffeinated beverages can have a positive effect on the clinical picture. more
  • Sleep apnea
    Sleep is the natural regeneration phase for a human. Obstructive sleep apnea does not keep the airways of the throat open often enough: breathing is done too little. Thus, a sleeping human does not get enough oxygen and the natural resting phase is destroyed.
  • Daytime sleepiness
    For clarification of the causes of exaggerated daytime sleepiness and assessment of the seriousness of daytimes sleepiness these examination methods are generally used after detailed preliminary talks in the sleep clinic. more
