A Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT) is a screening test for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, one of the most common sleep disorders. Obstructive Sleep Apnea can cause excessive daytime sleepiness and snoring, and is associated with obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes.
The biggest reason to have your HSAT is simply excessive daytime sleepiness – You feel more tired than you should. Excessive daytime sleepiness lowers the quality of life, affects relationships, hinders work performance, can cause personality issues such as irritability and lack of focus, and can create dangerous situations such as impaired driving. You may feel tired all day and nearly every day, and feel like you can’t live your life to the fullest. Diagnosing and treating a sleep disorder could give you back your energy, alertness, and enthusiasm – It could give you back your real life.
Snoring is another significant symptom. Snoring can be an issue for the bed partner and can cause discord, relationship issues and separate bedrooms. It can be embarrassing or make the snorer an object of ridicule. About 60% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea, and nearly everyone who has obstructive sleep apnea snores.
Obesity can also be related to sleep disorders. Sleep disorders can contribute to obesity due to low energy, daytime sleepiness and apathy. Obesity is a risk factor for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Sleep disorders are also related to other significant medical conditions. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is associated with heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes.
The reason to have a sleep study is to find out why you’re sleeping poorly and what treatment options might help, so you can improve your quality of life and your health.
