Diagnosing and Treating Sleep Apnea in Oregon

Some of the symptoms of sleep apnea may include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Restless sleep
  • Frequent awakenings with a choking sensation or stopped breathing
  • Sleepiness or lack of energy during the day
  • Headaches

Many health systems provide sleep studies that electronically record a patient's physical activities during sleep, including the number of times a person stops breathing. Once diagnosed through a sleep study, the medical condition can be treated though a range of treatment options, use of a CPAP machine or surgery. Unfortunately, doctors do not always prescribe a sleep study even when presented with symptoms of sleep apnea.
