Sleep Study: What To Expect

Millions of Americans cope with the effects of sleep apnea, which can range from excessive daytime sleepiness to serious health threats. Fortunately it can be treated at SLEEPwell in Longview TX, but the first step is a diagnosis.

If you’ve spoken to your physician about sleep concerns, he or she may already have suggested a sleep study. This is the best way to gather the necessary information to make an accurate diagnosis.

Sleep Studies

Sleep studies are a non-invasive exam. You have to be asleep to get one, of course. There are sleep centers in or near most communities, sometimes in a hospital. There are at-home tests available, too.

Whether it’s in a clinical setting or at home, a number of sensors are attached to your head and body. These, in turn, connect to devices that measure activities like heart rate, breathing, how often you roll over, and snoring.

Afterward the data is analyzed by a technician and a doctor. It can tell us a lot, like whether you have sleep apnea, narcolepsy, restless legs syndrome, and more.

At SLEEPwell in Longview TX we can develope at sleep apnea customized just for you. Treatments include oral appliance therapy, which has helped people in Gladewater, Hallsville, and New Diana. Please give us a call to schedule an appointment today!
