Sleep Studies

  • Sleep Apnea
    What is it?

    A common condition defined as a pause in breathing while sleeping that lasts ten seconds or longer and occurs occur 20 to 30 times in an hour. It can be life threatening.

    What causes it?

    Most commonly, air does not flow into your lungs through your mouth or nose, causing the amount of oxygen in your blood to drop.

    What are the symptoms?

    Symptoms may include frequent waking episodes and a “choking” or “gasping” sound.

  • Snoring
    What causes it?

    Snoring occurs when the airway has some form of obstruction.

    Why worry about it?

    Although it seems common, snoring can be a sign of a more serious breathing problem. Snoring can also interfere with the quality of sleep due to frequent waking episodes, which may lead to sleepiness during the day.
