Sleep Apnea Diagnosis:
A diagnosis for sleep apnea must be made by a physician after a sleep test is conducted. There are two types of sleep tests:1. Polysomnogram – in lab sleep study monitored by a technician. This test provides the most accuracy for diagnosis. 2. Home sleep Study – most comfortable because it is done in the comfort of the patient’s home. Although an in lab sleep study is the most accurate, some insurances request a home sleep study first because of its affordability and accuracy.
Treatment:Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) – most common and the standard in treating sleep apnea. Indicated for severe apnea Oral appliance therapy – indicated mild/moderate sleep apnea or patients intolerant to the cPap machine. Benefits include easy to wear, easy to travel. Easy to clean. Oral appliance and CPAP can be combined for optimal breathing as determined by a follow-up sleep study as well as patient symptoms.
