Testing for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
The most common reason that someone is sent for a sleep study is to see
if he or she has a condition called
Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is becoming an increasingly prevalent problem
in American society.
This sleep disorder has been associated with:
- High blood pressure
The good news is – OSA is treatable. Having a sleep study is the
first step that you and your medical provider can take to diagnose and
treat OSA, or any other sleep disorder.
Do I Need an Order from my Doctor?
Yes. Like most medical tests, a sleep study must be ordered by a healthcare
provider, even if your insurance plan does not require a referral. Contact
us if you have any questions about this process.
