affordable sleep clinic
Those with sleep apnea may snore loudly or even stop breathing for moments while they are asleep, which may cause the patient to wake up gasping for air. When the sleep apnea sufferer is awake, they may complain of morning headaches, memory loss, poor concentration and feeling exhausted throughout the day. This condition also puts patients at a higher risk of accidents and medical emergencies like a stroke or heart attack. If you have any of these symptoms then you may have sleep apnea.
In order to properly diagnose your sleep apnea, you will need to come into our sleep clinic overnight for an evaluation. We will perform a sleep study, also known as a polysomnogram, which will record your physical activity while you sleep. If sleep apnea is suspected, then we will most likely perform this sleep study over two nights.
The first night will require general monitoring, as well as a confirmed diagnosis of sleep apnea. The second night we will have you use a CPAP machine while you sleep to help us determine the proper among of pressure that will be needed to reduce your symptoms. CPAP therapy, also known as continuous positive airway pressure, is a common way to treatment sleep apnea. This compact machine produces a constant steady stream of airy pressure through a mask or nose piece that you will wear while you are asleep.
The only way to properly diagnose and treat your sleep apnea is through a sleep study. To find out how our sleep clinic could improve your sleep apnea symptoms, contact our Forest Hills, NY office today.
When you aren’t sleeping well or you don’t sleep enough it can have a negative impact on your health. There are many causes for sleep deprivation including daily stressors, purposefully sleeping less to spend more time on work or play, or there may be certain medical or mental conditions that are making it hard for you to sleep.
Sleep deprivation can also be caused by an underlying sleep disorder. You may wake up from sleep not feeling refreshed, and you may experience excessive sleepiness throughout the day. You may not even be aware that the cause of your daytime symptoms is sleep deprivation. Many people with sleep deprivation don’t know that they should feel differently than they normally do throughout the day, which is often what causes people to remain untreated for so long.
Short-term effects of sleep deprivation include problems with memory and concentration, decreased performance, increased stress, reduced quality of life and an increase in both work and car-related accidents. The long-term consequences of sleep deprivation are more serious and include conditions like heart attacks, high blood pressure, strokes, heart failure and mood disorders like depression.
