Do YOU have OSA? It stands for Obstructive Sleep Apnea. It is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. It is potentially life threatening. Please take the following STOP BANG quiz to determine if you are at risk.
If you are at risk we can help you. We must first determine what stage of sleep apnea you have. It must be done either at an overnight sleep clinic or with a at home sleep study (HST) device. Our office has purchased an HST and the computer program that evaluates if you have mild, moderate, or severe sleep apnea. We let you take the HST home; you wear it overnight and return it to us the next day. We then attach the HST to our computer software and a printout is made of your overnight sleep. We charge $85.00 which is just the cost of the probes and the time it takes to upload the test to the computer. The treatment if needed could be a CPAP device or an oral appliance. Not only can the treatment enhance the quality of your sleep/life, but it could potentially be life extending. Dr. Galante wears an oral appliance every night. We want to help you live longer and better.
