HOUSTON, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- For many years, Apnix Sleep Diagnostics has been helping people throughout the Houston area and beyond to determine if they have a sleep disorder and to find a treatment option that works well for their needs. This highly reputable sleep center has recently announced that it is opening new sleep study facilities throughout the Houston area to better serve its patients.
Apnix Sleep Diagnostics strives to provide its patients with the best overall experience during the diagnostic and treatment process alike. One of the ways that it accomplishes this is by offering nine different locations across the Houston area. These locations include those in Houston, Bellaire, Willowbrook, Sugar Land and Houston proper. These provide residents with the ability to be diagnosed and treated in a facility that is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Getting adequate sleep at night is a necessity for health and well-being. Each individual will have their own unique sleep preferences and may require a different amount of sleep for health. Therefore, it is not possible to determine if an individual is getting an adequate amount of sleep regularly simply by reviewing how long he or she sleeps at night. However, many millions of people suffer from a sleep disorder that causes them to struggle with sleep at night and that may result in them waking up feeling exhausted.
The typical adult may require between seven and eight hours of sleep at night, but some people naturally require more or less than this. Individuals who struggle to fall asleep, wake up frequently at night or wake up too soon on a regular basis may have a sleeping disorder. Even those who seem to sleep well at night but who wake up feeling exhausted may have a sleeping disorder. There are dozens of disorders that an individual may have, and they may make a person feel fatigued and drowsy throughout the day. In addition, disorders that persist over a long period of time may result in health issues that range from memory loss, confusion and headaches to hallucinations, depression and an increased risk of conditions like fibromyalgia, diabetes and others. Obtaining an accurate diagnosis of a sleeping disorder is a first step toward treating the condition.
Patients who visit an Apnix Sleep Diagnostics sleep study facility will be monitored at night through different methods. Their brain waves, heart rhythm and breathing patterns may be monitored through various devices, and the results of these monitoring tests may be used to accurately diagnose a sleep disorder. At Apnix Sleep Diagnostics, patients may typically spend one to two nights being observed by a team of medical professionals. The sleep facilities are designed to help patients feel relaxed and at ease. In fact, they are designed with adequate comforts and luxuries so that they will make a patient feel like they are sleeping in a fine hotel rather than in a medical facility.
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.
