Sleep Testing:

girlundercoversSleep technology has come a long way, and methods to test for sleep apnea can now be done at home instead of in an unfamiliar lab. When testing at home, a patient is given a monitoring device that collects data while he sleeps, and this information can later be downloaded and analyzed by a sleep professional.

The sleep study will reveal how many times the patient experiences hypopnea, which is shallow breathing, and apnea, the stoppage of breath. These two events are examined to create what is known as an apnea/ hypopnea index, or AHI. If you were told that you had an AHI score of twenty, it would mean that you were having periods of shallow breathing or stoppages of breath an average of twenty times per hour as you sleep. An AHI score of less than fifteen is considered to be mild obstructive sleep apnea, and a score of 15 to 20 is classified as “moderate,” while an AHI over 30 is ranked as “severe.”

Are you the snorer or is it your bed partner who snores?
