Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 23, 2013
Apnix Sleep Diagnostics has been providing Houston area residents with a number of treatment tests that can be used to diagnose a sleep disorder. Because there are dozens of different sleep disorders, proper diagnosis of the condition is the first step toward effectively treating the disorder, and Apnix Sleep Diagnostics is now offering enhanced Sleep Apnea tests to better identify sleep disorders and provide treatment to more sufferers.
Apnix Sleep Diagnostics has nine convenient locations across the Houston metropolitan area, and all of these locations are now updated to provide local residents with easy access to the most modern testing, diagnostic and treatment services available today. The facilities are state-of-the-art and comply with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine’s new requirements for 2013. They provide patients with a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere that is more similar to a beautiful hotel than a medical setting. This is the ideal environment for individuals to receive the diagnostic sleep tests that they need. Patients typically will remain in the facility for one or two evenings while a sleep study is being performed. While the individual sleeps, he or she will be monitored through various tests. These are non-invasive tests that include electroencephalography (EEG), electro-oculography (EOG), submental-electromyography (EMG) and electrocardiography (ECG). Through these and other tests, factors like the patient’s heart rate, eye and leg movements, brain waves, breathing patterns and other factors are monitored. Apnix Sleep Diagnostics is so confident in their new sleep apnea tests, that an accurate diagnosis of the patient’s sleep disorder is guaranteed. Typically, the results of the sleep study will take about a week to process, and the physician will review the results in person at a scheduled appointment.
