HOW CAN THE MONTREAL SLEEP CENTER HELP YOU?
To diagnose sleep apnea, you will bring a screening device home and sleep in your own bed overnight. Appointments for screening tests are normally available same or next day. Once the screening device is returned, it is sent to an analyst for evaluation. Study results are treatment options are sent to the patient with 7-10 business days. Patients who fall into the moderate or severe category for sleep apnea are recommended to undergo a trial with a CPAP machine. CPAP is a continuous positive air pressure that can alleviate symptoms of sleep apnea and snoring. CPAP is the most effective treatment option for sleep apnea and snoring because it targets the upper airway of the patient’s respiratory system.

Continuous positive air pressure from the CPAP machine is one of the treatments prescribed by professionals at the Montreal Sleep Center to treat obstructive apnea. This small machine provides gentle airflow through a mask to keep the airways open. This prevents blockage and enables restorative sleep.

Have you ever wondered what causes snoring? As you enter sleep your throat muscles relax, your tongue drops back, and the airways at the back of your throat become narrow. When you breathe in, the walls of the throat begin to vibrate, which results in snoring. While snoring itself is not necessarily dangerous, it is likely to affect you and your partner’s quality of sleep. Snoring may also be a sign of sleep apnea. If you snore – you should have a sleep test.
Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder among adults that causes temporary respiratory arrests throughout the night. These short interruptions in breathing prevent you from getting a restful sleep and increase the likelihood of developing serious health complications if left untreated.
