Sleep Study for Patients

What is “Home Sleep Testing”

  • A sleep test is meant to evaluate a patient for sleep apnea, and it monitors breathing parameters, not the sleep itself. The sleep test won’t analyze how long you’re in light or deep sleep, for instance. Instead, it will measure pauses in and absence of breathing, how much effort it takes to breathe and whether your breathing is shallow.

FAQ's

Sleep apnea is likely the most common sleep disorder among American adults, with an estimated 1 in 5 people suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat are unable to keep the airway open during sleep. It affects millions of people, yet most don’t know they have OSA and are unaware of its life-threatening dangers. Other less common forms of this condition include central sleep apnea (CSA), where the brain is unable to send the right signals that control breathing throughout a sleep cycle.

Symptoms

Healthy sleep is key when it comes to maintaining good overall health. Since people who suffer from sleep apnea tend to be sleep-deprived, symptoms may include:

·      Difficulty Concentrating

·      Stress on Heart

·      Headaches

·      Insomnia

·      Depression

·      Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

·      Sexual Dysfunction

·      Learning and Memory Difficulties

These symptoms are warning signs. If sleep apnea is left untreated, the condition can create more severe health problems that don’t just affect sleep. OSA increases the risk of high blood pressure, which can also manifest in cardiac arrhythmia, strokes, and congestive heart failure.

Causes of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea can affect anyone at any age, and there is no single cause. However, certain factors increase the risk of developing OSA:

·      Small or Narrowed Airway

·      Family History

·      Obesity & Excess Weight

·      Recessed Chin

·      Large Overbite

·      Neck Size

·      Habitual Smoking or Alcohol Use

OSA can be hereditary, as facial structure, body type, and other physical conditions are passed down genetically. Sleep apnea is typically more common in men and older adults, but women can be just as likely to have sleep apnea, especially after menopause.
