Snoring may be more than just a disconcerting noise to your partner.
Did you know that without healthy sleep, you risk affecting your overall health? Experts agree that there is a connection between untreated sleep-related breathing disorders and heart disease. Sleep disorders may contribute to diseases such as high blood pressure, stroke, obesity, depression, coronary artery disease, and more.
Do you snore?
Has anyone noticed that you hold your breath or move restlessly while sleeping?
Do you feel fatigued or tired after a night of sleep?
Do you feel sleepy during the day?
Are you irritable or have problems concentrating?
Do you have high blood pressure?
Do you sleep sitting up or use more than one pillow?
Have you ever fallen asleep while driving?
Are you overweight?
Do you wear a CPAP?
If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, we can offer a simple test that will provide us with a more detailed analysis of your situation. The results of this test will help determine what type of action, if any, you need to take. You will be provided with a device that is worn on your finger while sleeping. When you return the device (typically the next day) we will be able to give you immediate results, and discuss treatment options. For some, a snore appliance may be sufficient; for others, a sleep study may be recommended.
CPAP users may find that wearing a snore appliance will enable them to make adjustments on their machine, which in turn makes the machine significantly more comfortable to wear.
Your health is important to us. There is no cost to you for taking this test or obtaining the results.
We will provide you with a print-out of these results, as you may want to share them with your physician. A good night’s sleep is important to your well being. One out of three Americans has a sleep disorder. Many people suffer needlessly simply because they are unaware that a problem exists. Once detected, most sleep disorders can be corrected.
