Health Issue: Sleep Apnea

Diagnosis

Sleep Centers - How sleep centers diagnose sleep disorders

If you suspect you may have sleep apnea, contact your doctor. You may need a referral from your doctor to visit a sleep center. If your physician refers you to a sleep center, the latest technology will be used to monitor you while you sleep. A sleep specialist will observe your sleep patterns, brain waves, heart rate, rapid eye movements and more using monitoring devices attached to your body. While sleeping with a bunch of wires attached to you might seem difficult, most patients find they fall asleep very easily.

The sleep specialist will analyze the results from your sleep study and design a treatment program if necessary. A sleep center can also provide you with equipment to monitor your activities (awake and asleep) at home.
