Sleep Study Helps Sleep Apnea and Sleep Disorders Treatment
Slow brain wave sleep allows the body to restore at the cellular level. Without this cellular repair, the risk of disease increases for obesity, diabetes, depression and hypertension.
The measurement of these brain waves, heart rates, oxygen levels and other body functions during sleep can only be diagnosed through a medical sleep study.
A well equipped Sleep Center provides diagnostic sleep studies and follow-up treatment for various sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy, sleep apnea, chronic insomnia and restless leg syndrome. Computerized equipment performs detailed sleep evaluations and generates comprehensive diagnostic reports in an expedient manner.
The first step toward getting a better night of sleep is to contact your physician,” noted Bass. “He or she will ask about your sleep problem and perform a physical exam that includes a mouth, throat, and nose check, weight reading, blood pressure check, heart rate and neck size measurement. You may also need lab tests and X-rays.
Depending on the results, a sleep study may be needed. This may include either a home device that the patient will operate and return upon completion to the sleep center for further review or spending the night at the sleep clinic or sleep center.
