Is Snoring Keeping You Up?
Find out if Sleep Apnea is affecting your quality of life
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) occurs when the airway temporarily collapses during sleep, preventing or restricting breathing for up to ten seconds or more. OSA patients will commonly suffer from low oxygen levels in the blood, high blood pressure and an overall decrease in the quality of life due to daytime drowsiness and headaches.
This results in poor sleep quality that makes you tired during the day. Sleep apnea is one of the leading causes of excessive daytime sleepiness.
Over 40 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder, and 20 million suffer from OSA. Despite the high prevalence, 93% of women and 82% of men with moderate to severe OSA remain undiagnosed.

Easy, In-Home Sleep Testing
Home sleep tests start with an in-office visit to assesses abnormalities in sleep behavior. When abnormalities are found, we will dispense a take home sleep testing device. The patient will take the device home, wear it that evening while they sleep, and return it to our office the next day. Results will be available usually within 24 hours.
There are many people with sleep apnea who have not been diagnosed or received treatment. This in home sleep test is made to be quick and easy for you to start getting your sleep right as soon as possible.
