Sleep apnea is a disorder that afflicts 12 million Americans. People with sleep apnea repeatedly stop breathing at night. This puts a strain on the entire body causing the oxygen level in the blood to drop and the carbon dioxide level to increase. Sleep apnea is closely linked with heart disease in even mild to moderate cases.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnea. In OSA, loose tissue in the airway collapses during sleep, obstructing the air passages. This also causes snoring.

CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) is the most common treatment for sleep apnea. The CPAP machine blows air through tubing and a mask which keeps the airway open. Patients receiving CPAP therapy often report a drastic reduction of symptoms after using the machine.
For a select group of patients, a home sleep study may make more sense than a traditional test performed within the Sleep Lab. Home sleep tests are only used to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Patients meeting the clinical criteria listed below and who are eligible through their insurance coverage, can now choose between having their test done in the laboratory and having it done at home. The patient is given a device and instructed how to attach it and activate it. The patient returns the device to the hospital where a report is generated and sent to your doctor.
Admit it. You yawn. A lot. You don’t wake up until you’ve had your coffee in the morning, you need another jolt in the afternoon to keep you going, then fall asleep watching TV at night. When you go to bed, you just lie there thinking of things you need to do. Think it’s because of your busy lifestyle? It’s more likely to be related to how well you sleep.
