While occasionally feeling tired in the afternoons may be normal, if it happens often you may, in fact, have problems with your sleep.
The most common type of sleep disorder is insomnia – difficulty falling asleep, remaining asleep, or getting back to sleep after waking up at night. Sleep apnea affects another 18 million Americans per year, and is characterized by 10-15 second-pauses in your breathing as you sleep. There are other types of sleep disorders – over 80, in fact – but the good news is that they can be successfully treated. New York Cardiovascular Associates’ physicians include some of the best cardiologists, heart surgeons, pulmonologists, sleep specialists, and echocardiologists in NYC. The goal of our experienced, Manhattan-based team of cardiologists, sleep apnea specialists, pulmonary physicians, heart surgeons, and other staff is to provide the best, most up-to-date screening, diagnosis, and treatment for heart disease and vascular disease. New York Cardiovascular Associates has made a commitment to work with each patient to provide the best individual care — whether for heart disease, sleep disorders, or other pulmonary and vascular conditions.
Sleep is vitally important to our health, and sleep deprivation – not getting enough sleep, or enough quality sleep – is being recognized as the true public health crisis it is. The physician specialists at New York Sleep-Wake Center have the sleep lab facilities to properly diagnose all of these disorders, and the training to treat and resolve them. Our New York, NY team of heart specialists and cardiac surgeons provide comprehensive cardiovascular screenings and treatment for heart disease, stroke, cardiac arrest, high blood pressure, and vascular diseases.
We also have varicose vein specialists and other top doctors who are experts in the fields of vein and arterial disease. Doctors have estimated that at least 40 million Americans have a chronic sleep disorder of some type. A related condition is restless leg syndrome (RLS), in which you have uncomfortable sensations in your legs that make you want to constantly move them, which can lead to insomnia. Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder, more dangerous because most people who have it don’t know it – their bodies wake up partially whenever they gasp for air during the night, but not enough to remember it.
The first step to better sleep is therefore a phone call to our office at 646-233-1838 to set up an appointment for an initial consultation.
NYCVA’s sleep specialists treat a wide range of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea and insomnia. Our commitment to be the best NYC center for cardiac care, vein disease, and improved heart health is evidenced by our receipt of multiple national accreditations for our NYC cardiovascular center. The effects of these sleep disorders cost US employers an estimated 18 billion dollars per year, and contribute to over 40,000 non-fatal and over 1,500 fatal tiredness-related auto accidents per year. Then our experienced sleep specialists can sit down with you, schedule a sleep study, and recommend effective treatment options to restore your healthy sleep habits and allow you to return to a normal, healthy life.
New York patients also receive the best care for pulmonary conditions including COPD and pulmonary hypertension.

Our doctors have been recognized as among the top New York cardiovascular physicians, as well as top cardiac and vascular specialists in the US. So yes, if you find yourself sleepy during the day a lot, it might be a good idea to visit a NYC sleep doctor.
Respiratory problems, speech and swallowing disorders, visual impairments, sensory integration dysfunction, sleep disorders and weak upper body strength may also be present. We encourage you to proudly wear purple, and do some of your own research to educate yourself and others about Moebius Syndrome. We appreciate your support and look forward to the biggest Moebius Syndrome Awareness day ever! Click here to download a pdf copy of the press release.
24th, make sure to wear your shirt with pride, telling everyone you know about Moebius and the special day honoring those with the condition. With the help of family, friends, and groups connected to the family, you can now raise the awareness around Moebius Syndrome. Put your talents, your compassion, your knowledge, and your experience out there in a way that can benefit others. Our appeal is simple – in support of those living with Moebius Syndrome, wear purple on 24 January and share your knowledge about this disorder. Thank you to all who have made this day possible and for giving our children a new meaning to life.- Kay Von WillinghMoebius Syndrome Awareness Day (MSAD) is important to me for many reasons. My hope is that Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day will bring awareness and understanding to those around them, and within the medical community as well.- Andrea (Sweetwood) SmithWhen I was asked what MSAD means to me.
I think of my friend Tim Smith, who has been informing masses of people about Moebius Syndrome for years. God bless!- David MoffittThe media have made a number of illnesses well known to the public such as cancer, mental health illnesses like Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia and that is just to name a few. Though in most cases Moebius Syndrome isn't life threatening it is still a syndrome that affects people all around the world emotionally and physically.Every day people usually have no clue what Moebius Syndrome is, so sufferers with severe facial paralysis sometimes will get looked at strangely while innocently walking down the street, going about their day. Most of the time it is really hard to let people in because it can be awkward breaking the ice, not knowing quite how to explain yourself to other people so that they can get a better understanding of the syndrome. And when you do explain yourself to someone you have to explain yourself to someone else and this can be tiring.Having a Moebius Syndrome Awareness day will benefit the public so much, its not a common syndrome so putting it out there to the world will just make people with the syndromes life a little easier.
This will also benefit Doctors who will be able to diagnose new born babies and infants quicker.Having an awareness day will also be great for people with the syndrome who are unaware that there is a Moebius Syndrome website and group on Facebook that they can go to if they need some support.
Finally the more people that know about the syndrome the better it will be to find what causes Moebius Syndrome as this has been yet to be discovered.- Loriana Sofia FirthI was surprised by how much Jasper got out of MSAD. The pride in his face from being the MFMS poster boy for the day was incredible- it dawned on me then that MSAD was important for him because it gave him the opportunity to celebrate who he is BECAUSE of Moebius syndrome not despite it. I have always tried to ensure that Jasper never feels as though he is deficient or that he needs 'fixing', MSAD helped to consolidate this.'- Lauren BroadhurstA few months ago I was watching an old episode of ER where a young boy with Down Syndrome is brought into the emergency room.

Immediately the TV doctor makes a decision on how his patient should be treated after considering a few risk factors involved in having Down Syndrome. It's mostly likely that if the situation were real the doctor wouldn't even know what Moebius Syndrome is, never mind knowing how to treat someone with it. I believe not only could a Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day teach doctors how to treat those with Moebius medically, it would teach others how to treat those affected by Moebius socially as well.- Gavin FoucheThe 1st Annual Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day was an invaluable day for our family. I believe that with the HUGE effort of the entire Moebius Syndrome community, MSAD allowed us to educate countless people across the world, including our family and friends that were unaware of exactly what Zayden’s diagnosis meant.
When I was younger, it was no fun to have other kids my age stare at me, or make fun of me (it's really no fun to have that happen to you as an adult either).
But the entire Moebius community and what it achieves daily shows—life sure is worth living.- Kevin Smant___________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Please consider joining us on Facebook using the icon above. As we become better known people start to see us for our commonalities not our differences. More doors are opened for us and we are able to do more towards our mission goal of "Creating a better tomorrow for ourselves and our children through education and public awareness!" We have to keep going and growing.
For Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day 2012 we reached out to other rare disease groups and told them about our Awareness Day. The jean ribbon has become a unifying symbol for hope in the RARE disease community and building awareness is easy!
Project team members are currently building the tools for a much needed program called 'RARE Meet Up's'. We are currently looking for rare disease advocates to contact us if they are interested in participating in a 'RARE Meet Up' group in their local area. We will continue through 2012 with the goal of connecting 7000 RARE families with 7,000 new champions for the cause.
And Global Genes Project team members wish The Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome much success on your awareness day on January 24, 2012!
NORD is committed to the identification, treatment, and cure of rare disorders through programs of education, advocacy, research, and service. NORD wishes The Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome and it's partners the best of luck on your awareness day; all of us together have an opportunity to unite our voices for the common themes of awareness, education, research, and hope!
