Sleep is supposed to refresh and revive us enough to feel energized in the morning. However, if you have been waking up feeling like you did not sleep a wink, your body may be trying to tell you that something is wrong. If you are known to snore or cannot pinpoint the reason for your fatigue, you may want to consider speaking to a physician who can order a Snap sleep study.
Snap sleep diagnostic testing is conducted while you rest in the privacy of your own home, although other sleep studies may be conducted within a medical facility. The Snap sleep study measures the severity level of your snoring while you are fast asleep and can pinpoint and identify the precise location of any obstruction that may be causing your snoring or breathing difficulties.
Snap sleep study’s results will give our physician a solid look at what is happening inside your body as you sleep, giving our physician the information necessary to suggest the most appropriate treatment options available to you. The most common treatment consists of a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) mask. The CPAP mask assists in providing you with continuous airflow by holding your airways open. Other treatment options exist as well.
If you are struggling with snoring during sleep, here are a few ways in which a Snap sleep study will likely benefit you:
1) Learning about the problem is always the first step in beginning to correct it. You may suspect that you are not sleeping well due to your incessant exhaustion. However, you may be unable to decide if your lack of restful sleep is due to stress or if the stress is caused by your lack of sleep. A Snap sleep study will promptly provide you and our physician with accurate results, guaranteeing that a proper diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea can be made.
2) Your romantic relationship will likely improve. If you have a romantic partner sleeping in your bed while you snore away, chances are they are not waking up feeling very refreshed either. Engaging in a Snap sleep study, then receiving a diagnosis and follow-up treatment, will ensure that both you and the love of your life are feeling rested enough to not argue about your snoring throughout the following day.
3) You will have more energy after receiving treatment. If sleep apnea is truly the cause for your sleeping difficulties, you are not only snoring, but you are also not likely to be getting enough oxygen during sleep. Once the issue has been corrected, you will feel well enough to take on the world.
