The Sleep Institute
If you are being told that you snore, snort and gasp, if you have disrupted sleep or are sleepy during the day, and you are overweight or obese, an at-home sleep apnea test may be very appropriate. Sound familiar? You could have sleep apnea.
Do you find yourself waking up tired, or maybe with a headache or dry mouth? Obstructive sleep apnea could be to blame. This happens when your breathing is interrupted during sleep, often for more than ten seconds. When you sleep, your muscles relax, including the throat and chest muscles that help you breathe. If you have sleep apnea, relaxation of throat muscles combine with a narrowed airway to interrupt breathing.
The Sleep Institute is located inside Missouri Delta Medical Center on the second floor. If you have a particular question or would like more information, please call us we would be happy to speak to you. If you cannot make your scheduled appointment or need to change it please call within 24 hours to avoid a delay in your next available appointment.
