HOUSTON, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Apnix Sleep Diagnostics has recently updated its comprehensive sleep apnea treatments, and is eager to serve more Houston sufferers of this condition.
The Diagnostic Process
There are dozens of sleep disorders that individuals in the Houston area may have, and an accurate diagnosis is a critical first step toward properly treating the condition. When individuals in the Houston area visit the Apnix Sleep Diagnostics center, they will go through an updated sleep study process. This process may require the patient to spend one or two nights in a state-of-the-art facility. Apnix Sleep Diagnostics has several facilities throughout the Houston area to best serve its patients. These facilities are designed to look like a luxury hotel room, which makes patients feel more comfortable and promotes relaxation so that the sleep study is most effective. While the facility looks like a hotel, it features advanced diagnostic equipment and is run by highly educated and skilled experts in this field.
The Treatment Options
Once the sleep study has been completed, the results will be evaluated, and a diagnosis will be made. Patients diagnosed with Houston sleep apnea will meet with the doctor to review the results and to discuss treatment options. Apnix Sleep Diagnostics may suggest a number of different treatment options and it provides both education and guidance to ensure the most successful treatment possible. Lifestyle changes that include limiting the use of sleeping pills and tobacco and alcohol consumption may be effective. Increasing exercise and reducing weight may also be helpful. Non-surgical treatments like a CPAP may also be recommended.
Patients will benefit from education, setup assistance, follow up visits, therapist services, physician care, and re-evaluations services as needed. For some, dealing with a sleep disorder can be overcome through basic lifestyle changes, and these individuals may not have to use a CPAP machine. For others, ongoing therapy and services are needed throughout their lives to ensure they get the restful sleep they need. From follow-ups to order supply replacements to repeat sleep studies when necessary, the Apnix Sleep Diagnostics center can help patients with all of their needs.
Those who are showing signs of a sleep disorder or who have been told they have a sleep disorder should contact the Apnix Sleep Diagnostics center today. Sleep problems can continue to affect a person's life in detrimental ways until they are properly diagnosed and treated. The first step toward effectively treating this is getting diagnosed with a sleep study.
Many people suffer from sleep apnea in Houston and surrounding areas. A sleep disorder like this could negatively affect a person's life in many ways. Because he or she is getting inadequate sleep or sleep that is not fully restful, a person with sleep apnea may be subject to an increased risk of obesity, depression, sexual dysfunction, diabetes, heart failure and other conditions. Mental effects of lack of sleep include decreased productivity at work, confusion, increased frustration, inability to remember details, and more.
Over the past 11 years, the Apnix Sleep Diagnostics center has helped over 20,000 patients overcome or improve their sleep disorder, and its holistic, supportive sleep apnea treatment options are second to none. The office can be reached by phone at 713-343-5380, or new patients can reach the office by completing the online contact form.
