Guthrie Offers Sleep Studies in Three Locations in Twin Tiers
Guthrie’s Sleep Center offers overnight sleep studies to test individuals for a wide range of sleep problems, such as sleep apnea, periodic limb movement disorder, narcolepsy, parasomnia, and nocturnal seizures.
Guthrie uses several techniques to alleviate sleep issues for patients:
• CPAP/Bi-PAP – to help patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) sleep normally by forcing open the air passages of the throat.
• Surgery – uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), somnoplasty and snorplasty are surgical procedures that either reduce or stiffen the tissues of the palate
• Oral appliances - specialty devices that are designed to reduce obstruction
Your patients can begin the process of gauging the quality of their sleep with a Sleep Assessment available on the Guthrie website. Click here to view it. http://guthrie.adam.com/content.aspx?productId=36&pid=36&gid=6&cmd=create&utm_source=guthrieorg&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=sleepcenterpage
