For Health Professionals

Sleep Apnea Management and Diagnosis
Obstructive sleep apnea is one of the most serious and under-diagnosed medical problems in the U.K. affecting 6 million UK people. Nearly half of people with sleep apnea also suffer with one or more serious health condition that Doctors already manage, such as diabetes, hypertension or heart failure, each of which can be aggravated or caused by sleep apnea. Treating these conditions simultaneously can help achieve improved overall patient outcomes.
Managing sleep apnea patients within your practice starts with a Home Sleep Test. Contact the online sleep clinic and Learn more about how the online sleep clinic can enable medical practitioners to accurately and cost-effectively diagnose sleep apnea.

Risks of Untreated Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Untreated sleep apnea is associated with two times the risk of stroke, five times the risk of a fatal heart attack and, among patients with diabetes, 82 percent increased insulin resistance.
If patients are having difficulty managing serious health conditions like diabetes or hypertension, they may also suffer from undiagnosed sleep apnea.

The majority (80%) of undiagnosed sleep apnea sufferers have uncomplicated sleep apnea—that is, sleep apnea without neurological conditions or severe co-morbidities. Uncomplicated sleep apnea is a straightforward diagnosis and patients can be easily diagnosed with renting directly or encouraging your patient to rent home test equipment from the Online Sleep Clinic.

Diagnosing Sleep Apneas


Sleep Apnea:

Symptoms Causes Cures and Treatment Options

Most of us don’t think of snoring as something to be overly concerned about—unless our bed partner is disrupting our sleep! But frequent, loud snoring may be a sign of sleep apnea, a common and potentially serious disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts as you sleep. Learn how to identify sleep apnea and what you can do about it.

NHS Choices:

Diagnosing Sleep Apnea

If you have symptoms of excessive daytime sleepiness, such as feeling drowsy, a lack of energy and poor memory, ask a partner, friend or relative to observe you while you are asleep. They may be able to spot episodes of breathlessness that could help to confirm a diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).

How Is Sleep Apnea Diagnosed?

Doctors diagnose sleep apnea based on medical and family histories, a physical exam, and results from sleep studies. Usually, your primary care doctor evaluates your symptoms first. He or she then decides whether you need to see a sleep specialist.

An Evidence Review Cosponsored by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the American College of Chest Physicians, and the American Thoracic Society

Sleep apnea is a common disorder that affects both children and adults. It is characterized by periods of breathing cessation (apnea) and periods of reduced breathing (hypopnea). Both types of events have similar pathophysiology and are generally considered to be equal with respect to their impact on patients.....

How Is Sleep Apnea Treated?

The goals of treating sleep apnea are to: Restore regular breathing during sleep and Relieve symptoms such as loud snoring and daytime sleepiness.


How To Manage Sleep Apnea

For those who can use it, PAP (positive airway pressure) therapy is the best fix. Continuous, or CPAP, is a common type. Apnea is a form of sleep disordered breathing (SDB), which causes the airway to collapse partially or fully; pressure (applied through a mask) keeps the airway open.


Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Primary Care

Obstructive sleep apnea should be suspected in patients who are overweight, snore loudly, and have chronic daytime sleepiness.


How Can I Manage sleep Apnea?

Many people have sleep apnea and don’t know it. Signs to look for include snoring, which indicates that you may experience further airway collapse. You may also experience anxiety, stress, depression, or acid reflux or indigestion, since apnea causes chest pressure that pulls acid out of the stomach.

Early Sleep Apnea Detection and Treatment in Stroke Rehabilitation:

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs when mechanisms that maintain pharyngeal patency during sleep are dysfunctional, resulting in narrowing or collapse of the upper airway. Most studies support the hypothesis of an association between OSA and vascular disease.

Index of Sleep Disorders

Since its introduction in 1990, the International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD) has gained wide acceptance as a tool for clinical practice and research in sleep disorders medicine. The years between 1990 and 1997 have witnessed wide-ranging changes in sleep disorders medicine from many perspectives:the growth of managed health care; public health care reform; efforts to better integrate sleep disorders medicine into the community of medical specialties; major efforts at improving public awareness of the serious toll of sleep disorders; and–perhaps most importantly–a rapid growth in our understanding of the pathophysiology and effective treatment of sleep disorders.
