There are many reasons why recommend have a sleep study.
Treatments for sleep disorders have a high rate of success for patients willing to take the leap in getting diagnosed. A Sleep Study is a key assessment tool that is used to determine the recommended treatment plan to give you optimal snoring reduction.
Within a short time of undertaking their optimal Treatment Plan, many patients find themselves feeling more alert and invigorated during the day and report an amazing change in the quality of their life.
A sleep study records brain activity, eye movements, heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels, body movement, and more.
The following information from a Sleep Study will be used to inform your treatment diagnosis by:
- Measuring the severity of your symptoms, for example; how many times you stop breathing or the amount of oxygen saturation during sleep
- Benchmarking before the treatment so that we can measure the progress of your treatment
- Determine the kind of sleep apnea you suffer from, which could be either Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) or Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) which is key in terms of the optimal treatment recommendation.
- Measure grinding and clenching of your jaw during your sleep, which can have an impact on your snoring.
