Getting a good night's sleep is a challenge for so many people. It is estimated that as many as 70 million Americans experience problems with sleep. Many people suffer from sleep disorders that often go undiagnosed and are never treated.
Not getting enough sleep has been linked to several chronic diseases and conditions, including:
- Chronic respiratory disease
- Heart disease
Symptoms of a sleep disorder
Excessive daytime sleepiness as well as waking up feeling unrefreshed may be due to an undiagnosed sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea or narcolepsy. Sleep issues can make it difficult to focus at work and school and can affect all aspects of a person’s life.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Are you constantly exhausted?
- Do you feel unrefreshed when you wake up in the morning?
- Do you experience excessive daytime tiredness?
- Do you fall asleep during the day when you aren't trying to?
- Do you wake up frequently during the night?
- Does your bed partner complain about your snoring?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may suffer from an undiagnosed sleep disorder.
Home Sleep Testing
Your physician might recommend that you complete home sleep testing if there is suspicion that you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. To schedule a sleep test, you will need a prescription from a referring physician. You will meet with a trained medical professional at one of our convenient locations to pick up the sleep testing equipment and receive easy-to-follow instructions and a demonstration showing how to properly use the equipment. The equipment is taken home where you will complete your sleep test. Once you have completed your sleep test, you will return the equipment to the same location where it was dispensed. The data will be downloaded and analyzed by one of our board-certified sleep physicians. Test results will be sent to your referring physician. After the test has been interpreted, you will be asked to make an appointment to meet with one of our sleep specialists to review the results.
