Why did my provider prescribe me this sleep test?
This test is designed to evaluate you for sleep apnea, a common disorder that causes your throat to close at night while you sleep, preventing you from breathing.
These pauses in breathing or ‘apneas’ put a lot of stress on your body. Sleep apnea can also contribute to numerous other health issues, many of them serious, including heart failure, elevated blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, type 2 diabetes and stroke.
What if I’m not tired?
While many patients with sleep apnea experience day-time sleepiness, snoring and nighttime wakefulness, you may not feel tired or have any obvious symptoms, but still be suffering from sleep apnea. This puts you at greater risk of developing secondary health issues or diseases. This is why a simple home sleep test is a quick and convenient way to either diagnose or rule-out sleep apnea for you.
