Dr. Najjar performs sleep studies at Decatur General Hospital, Crestwood Hospital and is the Sleep Director for Parkway Medical Center. The most common disorders are Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome, Narcolepsy, Periodic Limb Movement Disorder, Restless Legs Syndrome, and Insomnia.

An overnight sleep study, known as a polysomnogram, is necessary to diagnose many sleep disorders. This is a painless procedure in which a variety of physiological parameters are recorded (breathing patterns, air flow, oxygen levels, eye movements, brain waves, heart rate and rhythm, leg movements, snoring) from electrodes attached to different parts of the body. This data from the test is analyzed and reviewed by sleep specialists, who then make appropriate recommendations to manage the condition. Follow up visits are scheduled as required and Dr. Najjar will map out your plan of care.
