Diagnostics and Treatments
Specialists use specific diagnostic procedures to determine the diagnosis and treatment of each patient. Once the tests are performed, the team reviews the results and creates a specialized treatment plan.
The following technology may be used as part of the process:
- Diagnostic Sleep Studies – Overnight sleep studies conducted at the Sleep Center. A technician monitors the patient and a computerized sleep system records various brain activity and body systems.
- Lab Work – Blood work may rule out endocrine and metabolic disorders.
- MRI Scan – May rule out brain stem abnormalities.
- EKG – Assesses potential damage to the heart from untreated or undertreated breathing obstruction.
