Sleep Apnea Syndrome refers to transient cessation of respiration during sleep.
The most common kind of sleep apnea is called
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSA) which is defined as the cessation of airflow during sleep preventing air from entering the lungs caused by an obstruction.
It is a potentially life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical attention.
The risks of undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea include heart attacks, strokes, impotence, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and heart disease.
There is a sleep test, called ARES Sleep Test that Dr. Salerno uses to help diagnose sleep apnea.
Watermark, the makers of the test explains:
After identification of appropriate candidates for testing through a validated OSA risk questionnaire, home sleep testing equipment is provided to the patient by the physician or mailed directly to the their home.
Our home sleep testing devices have been validated to be as effective as an in-lab sleep studies, yet with the convenience and simplicity of being performed in the comfort of your home at a fraction of the cost!
Upon completion of the study, the information is uploaded to the WM Sleep Portal where the study data is auto-processed, undergoes a technical QA edit and professional interpretation by our network of board certified sleep physician before being returned to the ordering physician for diagnosis, all within 48 hours.
