Consult your physician if you have loud snoring or excessive daytime sleepiness despite getting enough sleep. Your physician will evaluate the possible causes and advise on the appropriate management.
Your physician may refer you to a sleep disorders clinic for a comprehensive evaluation of your problem. The evaluation usually involves an overnight sleep study. A sleep study is required for the diagnosis of OSA.
A sleep study or
polysomnogram (PSG) is
an overnight non-invasive
diagnostic test performed
in a sleep laboratory.
The PSG monitors the different stages
of sleep, breathing effort, oxygen
levels, heart rhythm and muscle activity
during sleep. The severity of OSA can
also be determined.
