Sleep disturbances can be related to a physical condition, such as a blocked nasal passage, or be neurological or psychological (i.e., related to depression) in nature.
Our program works with you and your primary care physician to determine if you have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) through at-home and sleep lab evaluations. If you are experiencing the following symptoms, you may be suffering from OSA:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Loud snoring
- Observed episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
- Abrupt awakenings accompanied by shortness of breath
- Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)
- Mood changes, such as depression or irritability
- Having high blood pressure
If you are experiencing symptoms, contact your primary care physician or the Heritage Valley SleepCare program. To get a sleep test, a referral from your primary care physician is generally required, along with authorization from your insurance carrier.
