Adult Sleep Apnea

Is Your Snoring Keeping Everyone in your House Up at Night?

Talk to an Experienced Michigan Sleep Medicine Doctor to Find Out if Your Snoring is Due to Adult Sleep Apnea

Chronic snoring may be a symptom of something much worse than bad pillows and allergies. Are you sick and – literally – tired of waking up every day exhausted? Then, you owe it to yourself (and your equally as unrested bed partner!) to find out if you have a serious sleep disorder called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

There are plenty of people who snore. Some only snore when they are congested. Others snore every night. While it may be annoying to a sleeping partner, it’s not dangerous. On the other hand, snoring is often a sign of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a common and very dangerous condition. People with sleep apnea actually stop breathing while they are sleeping.

If you think your snoring may be a sign of deadly sleep apnea, you owe it to yourself and your family to get tested. At the Sleep & Attention Disorders Institute in Sterling Heights, Mich., we do sleep testing to check for sleep apnea or another sleep disorder. While it’s possible to take a home sleep apnea test, they are not as reliable as in-center tests. We do home sleep apnea testing as well as testing in the sleep center. If a home sleep apnea test is inconclusive, it must be repeated in the sleep center to correctly diagnose sleep apnea.

Contact us today for an appointment with Dr. R Bart Sangal. He has dedicated his life to diagnosing and treating patients suffering with sleep and attention disorders. For more than 30 years, he has helped countless patients get a better night’s sleep. He won’t stop until he finds a treatment that works well for you. His office is located where Sterling Hts, Troy, Shelby Township and Rochester Hills come together in the Greater Detroit area.

Is it Necessary to Test for or Treat Sleep Apnea without other Symptoms? The US Preventive Services Task Force states it is not clear whether people without symptoms should be evaluated or treated for obstructive sleep apnea. I agree. We should not go out and test everyone for sleep apnea. We probably should not treat…
