A new sleep disorders center in the Caribbean is filling a void in the market, reports The Cayman Reporter.

Dr Archita Joshi-Bhatt, consultant pulmonology, critical care and sleep medicine at HCCIsaid, “Although no definite figures are presently available for the Caribbean region, in the last year of our practice here at HCCI, a tertiary care institute, my colleagues and I came across several patients who had high likelihood of sleep disordered breathing, either by itself or co-existing and complicating other medical conditions. Although some home sleep testing facilities are available on Island, patients requiring a more detailed analysis had to travel overseas. We found a burning need to address this deficiency.
