Do You Have Symptoms Of Sleep Apnea?
At Home Sleep Apnea Testing is available with NJ Medical Doctor!
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or abnormally low breathing while asleep. An apnea – each pause in breathing, can last from a few seconds to minutes and occur from 5 to 30 times or more per hour. A hypopnea, is each abnormally low breathing event.
Sleep apnea testing is done with a sleep study – an overnight sleep test. There are three types of sleep apnea - central (CSA), in which breathing is interrupted by a lack of respiratory effort, obstructive (OSA), in which breathing is interrupted by a physical block to airflow despite respiratory effort and a combination of the two, known as complex or mixed sleep apnea. OSA accounts for 85% of all sleep apnea cases.
Sleep Apnea Facts:
And to make matters more alarming:
There are a multitude of symptoms of sleep apnea. Some may include:
OSA is very common in those patients diagnosed with heart disease, stroke or diabetes. Risk factors or sleep apnea causes may include obesity, alcoholism, smoking, nasal allergies, race and a family history of OSA.
Unfortunately, up to 90% of patients with significant sleep apnea remain undiagnosed. A correct medical diagnosis is vital, especially when considering sleep apnea treatment options. Luckily, for those sufferers who believe they may have OSA, a home sleep study may make diagnosis easier.
A home sleeping test is fast, affordable and covered by most insurance carriers. If you have a PPO or coverage under Medicare, you may be eligible for this test at little or no cost. Best of all, it is done in the privacy of your own home… not at a hospital or sleep center!
