Aims and concepts

The competence center sleep medicine (Charité, Campus Benjamin Franklin, CC15) was founded in 1992 and accredited in 1994 by the German Society of Sleep Research and Sleep Medicine (DGSM). The sleep laboratory has two polysomnographic units. However, for research purposes, the capacity of the lab can be extended to four units. Our laboratory regularly participates in management assurance procedures.

We offer both outpatient and inpatient diagnostic services for patients with a sleep disturbance, in accordance with the DGSM Guidelines (Guideline "S3"). However, we specialize in diagnosing and treating sleep disturbances of psychiatric or neurological origin. We naturally work closely in cooperation with general practitioners / familiy physicians. Our treatment options include a specialized, CBT(Cognitive behavioural therapy)-based Insomnia-therapy.
