We will perform a therapeutic sleep study if you've been diagnosed with a sleep-related breathing disorder and your doctor has prescribed CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy. This therapy is used to prevent your airway from closing while you sleep. The test itself will help determine the correct level of CPAP therapy required for your specific situation using different airway pressures.
Home Sleep Testing offers an innovative approach to identify patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In fact, many experts agree that home sleep testing provides a more natural and realistic picture of a patient’s normal sleep. This procedure involves a portable testing device that is put in place by the patient, utilized during the night in their own home and then returned to the office for review.
The National Sleep Foundation reports that while overnight shift workers have become an important part of our 24-hour globalization of society, they also expose themselves to sleep-related risks such as frequent sleep disturbance and excessive sleepiness.
