If you have been suffering with sleeping problems for weeks, months, or even years, the first step in finding a solution is to get a proper diagnosis. This will usually involve a sleep study, which is a medical test in which your vital signs (such as blood pressure, brainwaves, and breathing patterns) are monitored while you sleep.
In the past, this usually meant that you would need to spend a night in a lab while hooked up to various machinery. If this doesn’t sound like the most restful environment in the world, you’re not alone! Thankfully, Dr. Brian Zulawinski can help you start getting the treatment you need from the comfort of your own bed using a home sleep study.
In order to get a home sleep study, first make an appointment to get a diagnosis from from Dr. Zulawinski. Then, we will provide you with a small device and show you how to use it. You will wear the device to bed that night. The next day, you’ll return it to our office and we will review its findings. From there, we can work with you to determine the best way to solve your sleep issues.
After careful research, we have chosen what we believe to be the most accurate and comfortable home sleep study device on the market, the WatchPAT from Itamar Medical. The device simply wraps around your wrist and index finger, and it will be able to provide us with vital information without disturbing your sleep.
If you’d like to have a home sleep study performed or have any questions, please contact our office today. It could be the first step to helping you finally get a full night’s rest!
