The Sleep Center at Queen’s – West O‘ahu’s diagnostic techniques include:
Treatment is individualized to each patient’s needs.
Snoring can be caused by an incomplete obstruction of the upper airway, and can be dangerous to your health. Many people who snore have complete obstruction (apnea) periodically throughout the night. When this happens, oxygen in the blood falls, the heart can beat irregularly and sleeping is interrupted. If sleep apnea is not treated, it can cause debilitating sleepiness, an increased risk of driving accidents, and could lead to health problems including heart failure. If you think that you have sleep apnea, talk to your physician or contact the Sleep Center at Queen’s – West O‘ahu.
A sleep study, or polynomnogram, is a safe, painless and simple evaluation of how your body functions during sleep. It is performed by a sleep technician. The data is recorded while you are sleeping and scored by a registered polysomnographic technologist and reviewed by a board-certified sleep physician.
A sleep study can provide a detailed evaluation to determine if you have a sleep disorder. Just as an x-ray uncovers a broken bone, a sleep study can uncover a problem in your sleep patterns.
If you do have a sleep disorder, it is important to be diagnosed and treated. Sleep disorders can contribute to other disease and conditions such as stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure and depression.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleep-related breathing disorder that is caused by the airway closing and preventing air flow into the lungs. Without effective treatment, people with OSA may be at risk of developing a number of serious health conditions. Drivers who have untreated OSA can become a hazard to themselves and others on the road due to excessive daytime sleepiness.
Testing, diagnosing and treatment sleep-related disorders helps you realize a better quality of sleep and better quality of life.
