  • 1. PRESENTS
    SLEEP APNEA 101
  • 2. WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?
    Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized
    by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing, during sleep.
    Each pause in breathing, called an apnea,
    can last from a few seconds to minutes, and may occur 5 to 30 times or more an hour. Similarly, each abnormally low breathing event is called a hypopnea.
    Sleep apnea is diagnosed with an overnight sleep test called a polysomnogram, or a "sleep study".
  • 3.
  • 4. IS YOUR PARTNER TELLING YOU THAT YOU SNORE?
    An individual with sleep apnea is rarely aware of having difficulty breathing, even upon awakening.
    Sleep apnea is recognized as a problem by others witnessing the individual during episodes or is suspected because of its effects on the body.
    Symptoms may be present for years (or even decades)
    without identification, during which time the sufferer may become conditioned to the daytime sleepiness and fatigue associated with
    significant levels of sleep disturbance.
  • 5. SLEEP APNEA SYMPTOMS
    Excessive daytime sleepiness
    Waking with an un-refreshed feeling after sleep, having problems with memory and concentration, feeling tired, and experiencing personality changes.
    Morning or night headaches.
    Heartburn or a sour taste in the mouth at night.
    Swelling of the legs.
    Getting up during the night to urinate.
    Sweating and chest painwhile you are sleeping.
    Symptoms of sleep apnea that others may notice include:
    Episodes of not breathing
    Loud snoring.
    Restless tossing and turning during sleep.
    Nighttime choking or gasping spells.
  • 6. EFFECTS OF SLEEP DEPRIVATION
  • 7. Statistically speaking,
    more than 40 MILLION people in the U.S.,
    or one in seven individuals,
    suffer from not enough or poor quality of sleep.
    Sleep deprivation is known to cause the following
    Cerebral vascular accidents/strokes
    Heart disease
    Hypertension
    Diabetes
    Obesity
  • 8. Most adults need about seven to eight hours of sleep
    within the 24-hour cycle that makes up our
    circadian rhythm, or biological clock.
    Sleep is a resting state where the body is inactive, blood pressure
    and temperature are lowered, breathing is slowed,
    and senses are unaware.
    Medical science believes that during sleep our bodies repair and renew their tissues, nerve cells, and biochemical's.
    A common misconception is that your brain during sleep is inactive. Quite the contrary, it is widely believed that sleep is a time for the brain to organize long-term memory and new information,
    and to put activities and emotions into context.

    Diagnostic study or CPAP treatment results will be ready in three consecutive business days and sent to your primary physician.
  • 11. What to Expect during a Sleep Study
    The test will record your brain wave activity, muscle movements, rapid eye movement, breathing, snoring, heart rate, teeth grinding, and possible restless legs syndrome.
  • 12. After your study is evaluated you will be contacted to discuss the options you have to treat Sleep Apnea.
