What is a sleep study and why am I having one?
The sleep study is a safe, painless, and simple evaluation of how your body functions during sleep. We provide you with a complimentary take home sleep study where you sleep as you normally would in the comfort of your own home.
The study can provide a detailed evaluation to determine if you have a sleep disorder. If you do have a sleep disorder, it is important to be diagnosed and treated. Untreated sleep disorders can contribute to other diseases and conditions such as; stoke, heart attack, high blood pressure, and depression.
A common sleep breathing disorder, Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA), is caused by the airway closing and preventing the flow of air into the lungs. The resulting pauses in breathing can occur 30 times or more per hour. Without effective treatment, people with OSA may be at risk of developing a number of serious health concerns. Because of the excessive daytime sleepiness that exists with OSA, drivers who are untreated can become a hazard to themselves and others while on the road.
