Sleep Apnea Treatment

Rest Easier & Live Your Life to the Fullest

Untreated sleep apnea can lead to serious life-threatening health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and type-2 diabetes. People with sleep apnea awaken dozens to hundreds of times per night, often without even realizing it, to gasp for air when they stop breathing in their sleep. These periods when breathing stops are called “apneas,” and they happen because normal airflow is repeatedly stopped throughout the night because the airway space in the throat is too narrow.

Sleep apnea often goes undiagnosed and untreated for years, because those who have it are unaware that they have a sleep disorder. Classic signs and symptoms of sleep apnea are:

  • Loud snoring
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Chronic headache
  • Moodiness
  • Forgetfulness
  • Poor school or work performance

A Sleep Study Can Diagnose Your Sleep Apnea

Concerned you have sleep apnea? At Wayne HealthCare, our sleep lab technicians and physicians can help. During a sleep study at our sleep lab, we will monitor your vital signs and respiration as you sleep. Certain tests, such as a polysomnogram, can diagnose sleep apnea, so it may be effectively treated.
