HOUSTON, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Losing sleep is more than an inconvenience. It can also become dangerous to your health and mental well-being. However, people don't always recognize the signs of a sleep disorder. They can live with the side effects for years, and they may not know how to correct the problem even if they are aware of it. That's why it's important to invest in sleep studies. An effective sleep study from Apnix Sleep Diagnostics will identify underlying problems and provide viable solutions to correct them.
Apnix specializes in home sleep studies. They provide patients with the kit needed to record their sleeping patterns and determine if they are suffering from sleep apnea. Their trained assistants will help patients set up the system to accurately record data.
In the past, sleep studies had to be completed in a hospital or another setting. While agencies like Apnix make the facility as comfortable as possible with luxurious features that rival fine hotels, patients may still be uncomfortable doing the test in a strange place. With the home sleep study from Apnix, patients can remain in the comfort of their own home and still obtain the information that their doctor is asking for. It may be easier for them to relax at home, and it certainly fits their schedule better because they won't have to drive to the center. After the study is completed, patients visit Apnix to receive a full evaluation based on the information gathered.
Patients who need to have a sleep study done are often looking forward to improving their lives. They know that improving their sleeping habits can help them with medical problems, psychological challenges and other struggles in their lives. It all starts with an effective sleep study, and Apnix makes it easier than ever before to participate in a study.
People with sleep apnea stop breathing dozens or even hundreds of times a night. The condition leads to high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, weight gain and adult apnea. Research is also showing a link between sleep apnea and acid reflux, and doctors are finding that improving apnea also improves this painful condition. Perhaps the greatest danger is the risk of car accidents and other problems that are more likely to occur when people simply are not rested enough.
Loss of sleep makes it harder to maintain emotional control. Mounting research shows that poor sleep habits contribute to mood swings, anxiety, depression and other psychiatric disorders. People who are struggling to get the required sleep will struggle to remain in control of their moods, and this also impacts their ability to remain calm, stay patient and make smart choices.
The loss of sleep that makes it harder to control moods and leads to physical ailments is also known for harming cognitive processes. It impairs the ability to pay attention, remain alert, work through problems and use basic reasoning skills. Children who are not sleeping well struggle to learn, while adults will struggle in the work place as well as other areas of their lives.
Sleep studies are used to determine what is interrupting a person's sleep at night. The chronic waking to breathe is often subconscious and will go unnoticed by the patient. With an appropriate study, the pattern of waking is recorded and documented, so doctors can prescribe an appropriate treatment to help overcome the problem.
Many people across the Houston area and beyond are suffering from an undiagnosed sleep disorder, and these disorders can affect their quality of life and their health.
