Sleep Disorder Diagnosis & TreatmentSleep Disorders Support Groups

If you or a member of you family have been diagnosed with a sleep disorder, you may benefit from one of the sleep disorder-related support groups offered by BayCare. We provide a wide variety of educational classes and events throughout the Tampa Bay area so that individuals can get information about symptoms, causes, risks, and treatments for sleep disorders. Find an event near you or call (877) 692-2922 for more information. You can also visit the American Academy of Sleep Medicine to learn more about about sleep disorders.

Below are a few examples of the sleep disorder-related support groups offered by BayCare:

CPAP/BiLevel clinics

Morton Plant Mease and BayCare HomeCare work as a team to provide support to our patients using CPAP or Bi-level pressure machines for the treatment of sleep apnea. Patients currently using a CPAP/BiLevel machine can obtain advice on proper use of their equipment or assistance with equipment adjustments through our CPAP/BiLevel clinics.
