I know if I have Sleep Apnea?
A visit to your family
Physician to discuss the symptoms you are experiencing is
the first step. Your family Physician can refer you to a Sleep
Specialist who will take a thorough medical and sleep habits
history. The Specialist may then schedule an overnight sleep
study called a Polysomnogram, which measures several bodily
functions such as heart rate, oxygen saturation, EEG, as well
as any Apnea episodes during the different sleep stages.Once
they have the results of the overnight study, a diagnosis
is made and the different treatment options are discussed.
