Sleep Diagnostics’ friends and staff are geared up about Sleep Medicine in 2013! We continue to be a leader in full service medical services for Sleep Disorders, and we are excited to announce that we now have a Home Sleep Testing program this year. Home sleep testing is not recommended for everyone.
Are You Eligible?
- You are between 18 and 65 years of age. Home sleep tests are not recommended for children or older adults.
- You have a high risk of moderate-to-severe sleep apnea. Your risk for sleep apnea can only be determined by a complete sleep evaluation. Key risk factors include loud and frequent snoring, daytime sleepiness, obesity, and witnessed pauses in breathing during sleep.
- You have no other major medical problems. Other medical problems can affect the results of a home sleep test, including lung disease, neuromuscular disease, and congestive heart failure.
- You have no other sleep disorders. Other sleep disorders also can affect the results of a home sleep test. During your evaluation the sleep specialist will determine if you show signs of having another sleep disorder. Examples include central sleep apnea, periodic limb movements, insomnia, parasomnias, circadian rhythm sleep disorders, and narcolepsy
If you snore and experience fatigue throughout the day chances are you have sleep apnea. If you have a BMI greater than 30 and a neck size of 17 or bigger, chances are you have sleep apnea. This is not something to ignore. Sleep apnea is a known link to several other major health problems like diabetes and heart failure. If you let it go untreated you are on a path to poor health. Every one knows that sleep is vital to our existence and ability to live a productive abundant life. Call us for more information about our program. 877 595 1090.
