Home sleep lab tests are economical [Fixed fees Rs. 5,850/*] and are conducted with short notice and at home. The results will give various parameters like snoring frequency, effects of snore on the patient etc. The results of Home sleep tests will give definite result as to whether the patient is suffering from OSA [Obstructive Sleep Apnea] or not. For almost 95% of the Patients, Home sleep tests are sufficient. After seeing the test results, the Sleep Medicine Doctor can take a decision as to whether further tests are required or not.

Sleep therapy is oftentimes prescribed by a physician for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The most common form of therapy is the use of a CPAP machine, in order to assist patients during sleep. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) increases pressure in the airway and helps to keep the airway open while the patient slumbers.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA) is the most common form of Sleep Apnea and occurs when the muscles and tissues in the throat and air passage relax while sleeping, and this impedes the flow of air into the lungs due to a blockage of the airway. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is more common than most people realize . If left untreated, OSA has been connected to varies chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and even Alzheimer’s. OSA has also been directly linked to fatalities by stroke, heart attack and traffic accidents. If OSA is diagnosed through sleep testing, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is most commonly prescribed.

About CPAP

The most popular treatment for sleep apnea is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy, and this is applied through devices called CPAP masks. These machines provide continuous air pressure to the nostrils in order to avoid what are called apneas — interruptions in sleep that cause a person to stop breathing.CPAP(Continuous positive airway pressure) machines use mild air pressure to open up the airway in your throat, which makes breathing much easier for the body. CPAP masks are worn at night. CPAP machines are easy to use, safe, and highly effective in treating sleep apnea. Patients notice an immediate difference in the quality of their sleep after using CPAP machines.

What is Sleep Apnea ?

Posted on Updated on

Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition. Sleep apnea causes a number of health problems such as stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other serious issues. If left untreated, sleep apnea can increase a person’s chance of getting heart disease by as much as 300%! Seeking treatment for sleep apnea should be a top priority for any diagnosed with the disorder, or if you suspect you may have it. Outside of these terrible health effects, sleep apnea severely disrupts your sleep. On an average night, a person with sleep apnea can suffer up to 60 pauses in breathing every hour. This puts a considerable strain on the body: the heart, the circulatory system, the lungs, the brain — really, everything. What’s even worse — if left untreated, the complications that arise from sleep apnea can lead to death.

If you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and are looking for information about the condition or equipment.

Sleep Apnea is Not Just Snoring

Posted on Updated on

For many, snoring may lead to a diagnosis of Sleep Apnea. But outside of the world of Sleep Apnea many people take snoring lightly. It is possible for some, snoring isn’t related to Sleep Apnea. It is still best to ask your doctor about getting tested. Snoring that is loud or involves choking or gasping during sleep should be looked into immediately. This also goes the other way, many people believe because they don’t snore ( or haven’t been known to ) they don’t have Sleep Apnea. Not snoring does not mean you are Sleep Apnea free. Sleep is vital to a healthy life, if you or a loved one suspects they might have Sleep Apnea, take it seriously and talk to a doctor about a sleep study.

CPAP

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the use of continuous positive pressure to maintain a continuous level of positive airway pressure in a spontaneously breathing patient. It is functionally similar to positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), except that PEEP is an applied pressure against exhalation and CPAP is a pressure applied by a constant flow. The ventilator does not cycle during CPAP, no additional pressure above the level of CPAP is provided, and patients must initiate all of their breaths. Nasal CPAP is frequently used in neonates, though its use is controversial. Studies have shown nasal CPAP reduces ventilator time but an increased occurrence of pneumothorax was also prevalent.
As a treatment or therapy, CPAP uses mild air pressure to keep an airway open. CPAP typically is used for people who have breathing problems, such as sleep apnea.

CPAP also may be used to treat preterm infants whose lungs have not yet fully developed. For example, physicians may use CPAP in infants with respiratory distress syndrome. It is associated with a decrease in the incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. In some preterm infants whose lungs haven’t fully developed, CPAP improves survival and decreases the need for steroid treatment for their lungs.
CPAP at home utilizes machines specifically designed to deliver a constant flow or pressure. Some CPAP machines have other features as well, such as heated humidifiers. CPAP is the most effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea, in which the mild pressure from CPAP prevents the airway from collapsing or becoming blocked.
