Franklin Low T Sleep Center Sleep Issues Treatment
Sleep apnea has been found in studies to put you at significantly greater risk of having a heart attack or a stroke. Symptoms of sleep apnea may include restless sleep, frequent interruptions because of gasping or choking, moodiness, irritability and even depression. The medical professionals at Low T Sleep Center will use advanced health assessment tools to determine whether sleep apnea is responsible for your symptoms. If this is the case, our team will design a Franklin sleep apnea treatment plan that suits your needs and your lifestyle. We will work with you to determine effective treatment for your needs to ensure that you enjoy the best quality of life every day.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea happens when you stop breathing while you are sleeping. This can happen because your brain is not signaling your muscles to respond correctly or because your airway is blocked. Sleeping on your side instead of your back or losing weight can sometimes relieve the symptoms, but this is not always effective.
Our Home Sleep Apnea Test in Franklin
Our home sleep study in Franklin is comfortable and convenient for you. Instead of having to wait weeks or longer for an appointment at an offsite clinic and spending a night away from home, you can sleep in your own bed and still get the data to us that we need. We’ll provide easy-to-use equipment which includes a small oxygen tube and nasal cannula to measure the flow of air, a pulse oximeter that is placed on your finger to measure the oxygen in your blood, and a chest strap similar to an athletic heart rate monitor to measure respiratory effort. All data is automatically recorded for our sleep doctor for analysis. This should be far less intrusive than spending the night in a sleep center in Franklin. Our Franklin sleep doctor will review the data and get results to you quickly.
Treatment for Sleep Apnea
If we determine that you have sleep apnea, we’ll put together an individualized sleep apnea treatment plan that works for you. This could involve lifestyle changes or a using a continuous positive airway pressure device. We help you get used to the CPAP and follow-up to make sure it is comfortable for you. We will make any necessary adjustments.
