Investigating Your Sleep Apnea
At the Center for Dental Sleep Medicine, an off-shoot of The Practice at Maxwell Place devoted to helping Hoboken-area residents with their sleep apnea, we have two sleep physicians on staff and collaborate with sleep centers in New York City and Edgewater, NJ at Sleep Disorders Institute and Palisades General Hospital. As a result, we have all the resources and knowledge required to help you with your condition.
Sleep apnea is usually detected by:
- Sleep tests. You will be hooked up to equipment that monitors your heart rate, blood flow and respiratory activity while you sleep. This allows us to get a sense of whether you are experiencing anything unusual during sleep. There are also home sleep apnea tests.
- A doctor’s evaluation. If we believe you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, we might send you to see an ear, nose and throat doctor. He or she will check for any blockages or obstructions in your nose or throat.
We will use our full range of abilities and resources to detect your sleep apnea.
