What is a
A sleep study is a test which monitors and charts brain
waves, heart rhythm, and breathing as the patient
sleeps. It also records eye and leg movements as well as
muscle tension. Sensors are placed on the head, face,
chest, and legs which send electrical signals to a
computer where the sleep activity is recorded. The
recording is then interpreted by a Board Certified Sleep
Medicine specialist. Sleep disorders are debilitating
and often life-threatening conditions. Some of the
common sleep disorders are outlined below.
Sleep apnea occurs when you regularly stop breathing
(apnea) or experience shallow breathing (hypopnea) for
10 seconds or longer during sleep. Obstructive Sleep
Apnea (OSA) occurs when a blockage or narrowing of the
airways is present. Often throat muscles and the tongue
relax during sleep and partially block the airway. Bone
deformities, enlarged tonsils and obesity can cause OSA.
Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder that
causes overwhelming urges to sleep. Episodes may cause
involuntary sleep while working, talking, eating, or
driving or cause sudden loss of voluntary muscle tone.
What are the Risks?
If you have a sleep disorder in addition to excessive
sleepiness and fatigue, you may be at risk for
heart failure, high blood pressure in
the lungs (pulmonary hypertension),
coronary artery disease, and
stroke or auto
How is sleep apnea treated?
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, C-PAP, is a
noninvasive therapy commonly used to treat sleep apnea.
Other treatments may include life style changes,
medications, or surgery.
