What is Sleep Apnea? Why MHSleepTestingTM?

Sleep apnea is a narrowing of the airways, especially during sleep. It should be considered a serious medical condition because it can affect your overall health and causes you to stop breathing while you sleep. Over 18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea and if left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to:

• Fatigue (increases the likelihood of motor vehicles and workplace accidents)
• Irritability and depression
• High blood pressure
• Heart problems
• Stroke
• Type 2 diabetes
• Liver issues
• Premature worsening of disease
• Death

There are many causes for sleep apnea, including being overweight, having a thick neck, or a genetically narrow throat. Sleep apnea can affect anyone, including children, your risk is increased if you are male, and older. Children with untreated sleep apnea may do poorly in school, or have behavioral problems. If you are a smoker or use alcohol or sedatives, you also have an increased risk.

Many of us suffer for years with this condition without reaching out for help. It’s understandable – going to a sleep center causes a big disruption in your routine. A typical sleep study can require several visits. With MHSleepTestingTM we save you time away from home for the initial sleep apnea diagnosis.

MHSleepTesting’s goal is to improve your overall health by identifying whether or not you suffer from sleep apnea. With MHSleepTestingTM, you get the results of an initial sleep study without ever having to spend a night outside your own bed.
