What is sleep-disordered breathing?

If you find yourself feeling tired even after a full night of sleep, struggling to stay asleep, or snoring regularly, you may be dealing with a form of SDB.

SDB describes a group of conditions characterized by abnormal respiratory patterns during sleep. Not only are these conditions widely prevalent, but they are also associated with other chronic concerns like heart disease, depression, and diabetes. For example, up to 60 percent of those with heart disease also have SDB.

The most common form of SDB is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition in which the individual repeatedly stops breathing throughout the night due to a restricted airway. Surprisingly, one billion people worldwide have OSA, and at least 80 percent of them are unaware, and therefore undiagnosed.

How does Pneusomnia diagnose SDB? 

Scheduling a consultation is the first step to diagnosing possible cases of SDB. A typical consultation at Pneusomnia includes diagnostic imaging, as well as one-on-one conversations with your medical provider. If you show signs and symptoms of SDB, you will be screened for the disorder.

Screening may consist of an in-office or at-home sleep test—discussed in detail with your medical provider. Pneusomnia prides itself on prioritizing patient comfort, tailoring treatment to suit each individual’s specific needs.

The bottom line is that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to SDB. Pneusomnia has extensive diagnostic records that allow for a completely customized treatment. Each patient is evaluated and given a tailored treatment plan for their wants and needs.

  • The Vivos System: nonsurgical, personalized oral appliance therapy
