Family Medicine Healthcare is now offering our patients a home sleep study for those patients who qualify. This is a low cost and extremely convenient option for people who find themselves extremely tired and suffering from fatigue. Those who qualify for a sleep study can enjoy the convenience of having the study done while they are at home, sleeping in their own bed.
So, how tired are you? Here is a Sleepiness Scale Self-Test (click here). Answer the questions to see how likely you are to doze off in normal, day to day, situations. These answers may show if you are possibly suffering from a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea.
You can also answer this simple questionnaire from ResMed, a leader in diagnosing and developing technology to help Sleep Apnea and Sleep Disorders.
If you have any of these symptoms, call our office today at 757-488-3333 to schedule an appointment with me. I would like to discuss this option with you, and see if you qualify for a Home Sleep Study.
Sleep is essential to your overall health. We want to ensure you are getting the sleep you need.
