Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Getting started with a home sleep test to diagnose and start treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea is simple. Any primary care practice can refer a patient to our office for the test. Once you have discussed the test with their provider, an order can easily be sent to Pulmonary Consultants.
There is no appointment necessary for you to pick up your home sleep test. The device can be picked up at any of our office locations, and is about the size of a deck of playing cards.
When you come to pick up the device, you will be instructed by one of our professional staff on the proper setup (although, we think you will find it quite easy). For added convenience in returning the device after use, we will provide you with a pre-paid priority mailing envelope. Just put the device in the envelope and leave it out for the mail — no hassles.
Our physicians will interpret the results in a timely fashion. Once the results are finalized, one of our nurses will call you to discuss the findings. We will also provide your primary care doctor with the information.
After the study is completed and the course of treatment is established, we will set you up with the proper medical equipment if necessary to help enhance your sleep. We will continue to follow up with you in office and make sure that we are achieving the best results possible so that you can sleep like you never have before.
