At Bharati Hospital, we recognize the significance of quality sleep and its impact on overall well-being. Our Sleep Lab offers advanced diagnostic services to identify and address various sleep disorders, including sleep-related breathing disorders and seizure disorders during sleep.
Understanding Sleep Disorders A sleep study, also known as polysomnography, is a non-invasive test that provides valuable insights into abnormal brain activity, respiration, heart rate, and muscle movements during sleep. It is particularly useful in detecting sleep-related breathing disorders such as sleep apnea. Additionally, sleep studies can identify seizure disorders that occur during sleep.
Common Causes and Symptoms of Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders: Sleep-related breathing disorders often occur in individuals with certain risk factors, including those with a short neck, structural abnormalities in the mouth or throat, individuals with hypothyroidism, and people who are overweight or obese.
Some common symptoms of sleep-related breathing disorders include:
- Daytime Sleepiness: Feeling excessively tired or fatigued during the day, even after a full night’s sleep.
- Snoring: Loud and frequent snoring sounds during sleep.
- Sleep Disturbances: Frequent awakenings or disruptions during the night, leading to fragmented sleep.
- Choking Episodes: Experiencing episodes of choking or gasping for breath during sleep.
Patient-Friendly Sleep Lab Environment
Our Sleep Lab provides a comfortable and patient-friendly environment to ensure an optimal sleep study experience. Patients are accommodated in private rooms designed to resemble a peaceful home setting. Each room is soundproofed and equipped with comfortable beds and bedding to promote relaxation and facilitate accurate sleep study results.
Professional Monitoring and Care
During the sleep study, patients are monitored overnight by a qualified technician from a separate room. This monitoring ensures that your sleep is observed and analyzed by experienced professionals. Additionally, we understand the importance of having a support system during the sleep study, which is why we allow a relative or caretaker to stay with the patient if desired.
Personalized Treatment Plans and Support
Following the diagnosis of a sleep disorder, our dedicated sleep specialists work closely with each patient to develop personalized treatment plans. These plans may include interventions such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, oral appliances, behavioral therapies, or lifestyle modifications. We believe in providing comprehensive support, education, and counseling to help patients actively participate in their sleep health journey.
