If you’ve suffered from extensive sleeplessness, Comprehensive Sleep Medicine is here to help you better your sleep health. Using the latest digital diagnostic equipment, we perform detailed sleep studies to provide accurate alternative sleep treatments for a vast array of disorders, especially obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Talk to our specialists to learn more about our alternative OSA treatments.
Consider Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP) Therapy
CPAP Therapy is typically the first line of treatment for OSA. The CPAP machine sends positive air pressure into a patient's upper airway through a mask. This air pressure keeps the patient's airway open as they sleep, preventing it from collapsing and allowing sleep apnea to occur. If this the recommended form of treatment, the patient should use CPAP therapy each night to enjoy the best possible sleep.
If we prescribe CPAP therapy, our specialists will arrange monthly clinical follow-ups to ensure that your treatments are going smoothly. Your follow-up data will be sent to your referring doctor each month.
