Address Your Sleep To Ensure That You Can Rest, Recover & Grow
Loud persistent snoring, poor concentration, daytime fatigue or early morning headaches could be a sign of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious yet common medical condition characterised by repeated interruptions in breathing throughout your sleep cycle. These interruptions, called apneas, are caused by the collapse of soft tissue in the airway, which prevents oxygen from reaching the lungs. Weak muscles in the airway, a large tongue, obesity and other factors may cause airway tissue to collapse and obstruct breathing. Sleep apnea disrupts the sleep cycle and can dramatically impact energy, mental performance and long-term health. In some cases, if left untreated, sleep apnea can be fatal.
Through our professional partnership with Philips, we are able to offer home based sleep studies for the simple yet comprehensive diagnosis of sleep apnea. Take their 9 Question Sleep Quiz to find out if you are at risk of sleep apnea and could benefit from a diagnostic test.
Philips provide the same service to many sleep clinics across the UK with one of their qualified Sleep Consultants reviewing the results. The results will also be reviewed by of our our doctors before being relayed back to you.
The test is completed in the comfort and convenience of your own home. No appointments or time off required, everything you need for testing is delivered directly to your door on a day and time that suits you.
The Philips home sleep study quickly and accurately assesses your Sleep Apnea status, bringing you one step closer to treatment and a restful night’s sleep.
