Many people suffer from a sleep disorder, the most common ones being sleep deprivation, obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, and shift work syndrome. Poor sleep can lead to or worsen diseases, such as dementia, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and hypertension. By identifying and treating a sleep disorder, patients can improve their quality of life and reduce the risk of suffering from a disease.
Common Sleep Symptoms:
- Abnormal Nocturnal Movement
- Poor Memory
- Poor Mood
- Sleep Apnea
- Poor Cognition
Home Sleep Apnea Test
If you suffer from 2 or more of the sleep symptoms above, a Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT) may be necessary. Most insurance requires patients to take an HSAT before visiting a sleep lab and for many it eliminates the need for a sleep lab visit altogether. An HSAT is easy to use in the comfort of your home with 95% accuracy of diagnosing sleep apnea.
Expert Sleep Medicine is the sleep medicine division of Family Allergy & Asthma. HSATs are available at our Metro Louisville Family Allergy & Asthma locations, as well as Expert Sleep Medicine’s offices, located throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Let our sleep experts help you rest easier.
