Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, we might order a sleep apnea test.
Some of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Loud snoring
- Intermittently stopping breathing during sleep
- Gasping for air during sleep
- Waking up with a dry mouth
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
At Watertown Family Practice, we offer a convenient at-home sleep study so you can be tested for sleep apnea in the comfort of your own home. We provide you with all the equipment you need to conduct the study at home. After we receive your data, we collaborate with a sleep specialist to diagnose and determine if treatment is needed.
