A good night’s sleep is absolutely essential to your health. We take this aspect of your health very seriously. Chronic sleep deprivation leads to weight gain, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, depression, anxiety, inability to concentrate, poor reaction time and an increase in motor vehicle accidents.
One of the more serious forms of sleep deprivation is “sleep apnea.” In this condition the tongue falls back in the throat during sleep and blocks airflow, leading to restless sleep, frequent awakenings and decreased oxygen levels. Atrial fibrillation, the most common form of cardiac arrhythmia, (irregular heart rhythm) is markedly increased in persons with sleep apnea.
Do you or someone you live with snore heavily or ‘snort’ yourself awake, and then feel excessively sleepy during the day? Chances are you or they have sleep apnea. The good news is that this is easily detected and easily treated.
In-Home Sleep Testing
Through use of ‘sleep diaries’ and in-home sleep testing (done right through our office, no need to spend the night in a ‘Sleep Lab’) to rule out Sleep Apnea, our Board Certified Sleep Specialist will guide you on your vital trip to better health by helping you obtain a refreshing, healthy night’s sleep.
