Are you at risk?

It is estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, with 80 percent of the cases of moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea undiagnosed. Oftentimes, we characterize middle age men as the person that is most “at risk,” and while that is true statistically there are many people, especially women, that are struggling with snoring, frequent wakening, and poor quality sleep that go undiagnosed. The only way to know for sure is to be tested. The benefit to testing for sleep apnea is that it is quantitive and objective. There is a well established scale and thoroughly researched home sleep study devices utilized to diagnose apnea. In coordination with a medical doctor, we will ensure you understand any and all findings and diagnosis before beginning treatment.

Are you Tired?

Fatigue is a common complaint amongst people across the world. Feeling tired when there is a definitive reason such as an illness, caring for a baby, or not getting enough sleep, is fairly normal. It is not normal to feel fatigued every day or after a full night’s sleep. This indicates a lack of quality rather than quantity sleep, which can sometimes indicate an issue with sleep apnea. Poor or inadequate breathing during sleep can lead to significant long term daily fatigue. Have you ever wondered if your amount of fatigue is normal? Take our assessment to find out.

Do you snore?

Snoring is common, but that doesn’t mean it is normal! It’s not normal to snore, not for  kids, not for adults, not for men and not for women. If you are snoring it does not necessarily mean you have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is only diagnosed when you stop breathing or your oxygen level changes enough throughout the night. Often, snoring is the first sign that a sleep disorder is emerging. Not to mention, its disruptive- for your bed partner, or when you go on a family vacation, or fall asleep on a airplane! While we treat sleep apnea as a medical condition, we can treat snoring too! Ask us how!
