Testing for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

The most common reason that someone is sent for a sleep study is to see if he or she has a condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is becoming an increasingly prevalent problem in American society.

This sleep disorder has been associated with:

  • Snoring
  • Obesity
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Death

The good news is – OSA is treatable. Having a sleep study is the first step that you and your medical provider can take to diagnose and treat OSA, or any other sleep disorder.

Do I Need an Order from my Doctor?

Yes. Like most medical tests, a sleep study must be ordered by a healthcare provider, even if your insurance plan does not require a referral. Contact us if you have any questions about this process.
