Why you should be tested.

Trouble sleeping can lead to more than just restless nights. These major, chronic health problems are associated with sleep apnea:

  • High Blood Pressure: The National Institutes of Health lists sleep apnea as a cause of high blood pressure. Studies show that about 30 percent of all people with high blood pressure have sleep apnea. That number increases to 80 percent for people taking three or more medications to control their blood pressure.
  • Heart Disease: Untreated sleep apnea strains the heart and may cause it not to work properly. Left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to heart disease and heart failure. People with sleep apnea can lower their chances of developing these problems by getting treated. 
  • Stroke: Sleep apnea can increase a person's chances of stroke. In fact, studies show more than 60 percent of patients who have had a stroke, also have sleep apnea. Stroke patients with untreated sleep apnea may have a harder time recovering after a stroke. Recovering from a stroke takes energy and motivation, and the sleepiness that comes from sleep apnea can make it difficult for a person to follow rehabilitation programs.
  • Diabetes: People with sleep apnea have higher chances of developing insulin resistance, which can lead to Type 2 diabetes. Sleep apnea is very common in patients that suffer from diabetes. About 60 percent of Type 2 diabetes patients have sleep apnea. 

Sleep Testing

On your night at our Sleep Center, you will stay in one of our cozy rooms, designed to feel like home. We encourage our guests to bring items that would make them feel more comfortable, such as a blanket, pillow or pictures.

When you schedule your study at Oklahoma Sleep Associates, we make sure your study is performed around your normal bed time. We also can schedule studies seven days a week, allowing you to have a sleep study performed on the weekend.

During the night, our sleep technicians monitor you to ensure the quality of the study is maintained and to assist you during the night.
