Ballarto Medical Centre offers Sleep Apnea testing from the comfort of your own home.
Speak to your doctor about your suitability for testing.
During your 1 hour visit with our practice nurse at our sister clinic – St Mary Medical Centre, the device will be explained to you and information provided. The ability to complete the test in the comfort of your own home enables an accurate reading to be obtained of your regular sleep pattern and habits.
You will be asked to return the device to the clinic the following day.
Your reading will be assessed and results provided to your doctor. A treatment plan is also tailored for you and will be discussed with you and implemented if required.
The good news is that sleep apnea can be diagnosed and managed by your doctor. Successful treatment can improve your sleep, reduce daytime drowsiness and improve your quality of life. It can also lower your blood pressure and improve your heart health.
