Sleep Apnea Testing
Get the Proper Diagnosis.
Why is testing important?
If you have sleep apnea, it’s essential to get tested. Sleep apnea can be a serious condition that causes fatigue, daytime sleepiness, and other problems. Left untreated can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease.
Sleep apnea is a treatable condition that affects millions of people worldwide. There are many types of sleep disorders and treatments available for those who suffer from them; however, if you or someone in your family has been diagnosed with this condition, then it’s important to talk with a sleep medicine provider about your testing options.
It is important to receive an accurate diagnosis to determine which treatment option would best suit their needs.
Sleep apnea can cause serious health problems if left untreated, as it puts stress on your heart and brain, and the lack of quality sleep can cause fluctuations in your hormones which can lead to mood disorders, weight gain, and lower libido. If you have sleep apnea, talk to your doctor about getting tested using an overnight home sleep test.
If you’ve never been diagnosed with sleep apnea, it’s important to know that the test can be used to help diagnose and treat this condition.
What is Sleep Apnea Testing?
Sleep apnea testing, also known as a polysomnogram, is a non-invasive test that is used to diagnose sleep disorders, including sleep apnea. During the test, you will sleep at home with special equipment that monitors your sleep. The equipment will track your brain waves, heart rate, breathing, and other bodily functions during sleep.
Will I have to stay overnight for this test?
No. You will sleep in your own bed and will not have to go to a testing center.
Are you tired of feeling exhausted all the time? Are you constantly snoring and waking up feeling short of breath? These are common sleep apnea symptoms, a serious sleep disorder affecting millions worldwide.
If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, and even stroke. Don’t let sleep apnea ruin your sleep and your health – get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan as soon as possible.
Our clinic is dedicated to helping you get the restful sleep you deserve. We use the latest technologies and techniques to accurately diagnose and treat sleep apnea, including the WatchPat One – a disposable home sleep apnea test (HSAT) device.
The WatchPat One is your key to a better night’s sleep. The device is as easy to use as wearing a watch – simply put it on before you go to bed and let it do the work. The device includes sensors that measure various physiological parameters during sleep, such as airflow, respiratory effort, and oxygen saturation.
All of this data is used to calculate an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), which measures the severity of sleep apnea. With the WatchPat One, you can get a reliable sleep apnea diagnosis without having to spend a night in a sleep lab.
But the benefits of the WatchPat One don’t stop there. The device is also designed to be comfortable and convenient for the user. It’s lightweight and discreet, so you can wear it just like a watch without feeling weighed down or self-conscious. It’s also disposable, which means you don’t have to worry about cleaning or maintaining it. Simply wear it for one night and then dispose of it – it’s super easy.
