NEW ORLEANS (PRWEB) May 18, 2020
GNO Snoring and Sinus – the New Orleans and Chalmette area experts in office-based treatments for sleep apnea, sinusitis and snoring – offers home sleep studies to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. Traditionally, patients would have to undergo an overnight sleep study in a hospital or outpatient laboratory. Not only was this process cumbersome, but it yielded significant out-of-pocket costs to patients as well. A home sleep study is a simplified diagnostic tool that patients can undergo in the comfort of their own home. It also reduces costs significantly for patient as it does not require an overnight hospital stay.
“In our practice, we have always sought to improve our diagnostic accuracy while enhancing patient convenience. Providing home sleep studies as our initial diagnostic tool for patients with suspected sleep apnea is an excellent way to achieve both. Furthermore, since this study is performed in the comfort of each patient’s home, we believe it is far more reflective of their true sleep pattern,” said Dr. Akash Anand of GNO Snoring and Sinus.
“By providing this treatment option to all of our patients with symptoms suspicious for sleep apnea, we are able to screen and diagnose patients much easier than had we sent them to an overnight lab. This enhances our ability to reach an accurate diagnosis and then institute appropriate therapy.”
If you or a loved one has symptoms of snoring, fatigue, sudden gasping while sleeping, please contact GNO Snoring and Sinus for an appointment and home sleep study assessment.
