In cooperation with STADMEDICA, the “Sleep Laboratory” is launched – see the offer prepared in cooperation with the team at https://stadmedica.pl/
Do you snore at night? Check if you may have obstructive sleep apnea, which can cause life-threatening diseases including: high blood pressure, heart problems, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and congestive heart failure.
Snoring is a very annoying ailment that disturbs the quality of sleep not only of the snorer, but also of people who sleep in the same room. It turns out that snoring is not only a matter of sleeping comfort, but also of health. People who snore at night are at risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This is a disorder where the upper airways collapse, preventing air from flowing into and out of the lungs, i.e. stopping breathing. The sick person breathes but no air enters the lungs. Sleep apnea must be treated. If you snore and you suspect you might be suffering from sleep apnea, take a polysomnographic examination at the Sleep Laboratory.
We are opening a professional Sleep Laboratory in our Stadmedica Clinic. The interdisciplinary team for the treatment of sleep disorders includes: pulmonologist, neurologist, psychiatrist, ENT specialist and dentist. The doctor dealing with sleep diagnostics is Dr. Jacek Dulęba, a member of the European Sleep Research Society (ESRS).
Diagnostics of sleep treatment begins with a consultation with Dr. Jacek Dulęba, a pulmonologist. He examines the patient, if necessary extends the diagnostics to include spirometry and decides whether to perform polygraphy or polysomnography. The test result allows you to make a diagnosis as to further treatment and the need for consultation.
We offer two types of sleep testing: polysomnography and polygraphy.
Polysomnography (PSG) – Polysomnography is a test that can detect sleep disorders. It is mainly about breathing disorders, mainly sleep apnea, which can have very serious health effects. The test consists in recording data in the field of sleep structure (EEG, EEA, EMG), number of awakenings, heart function – ECG, measurement of blood oxygen levels, chest and abdominal breathing movements, registration of airflow through the respiratory tract, snoring, using sensors, body position and limb movements.
For a polysomnographic examination, the Patient comes to the Clinic for the night. He is constantly under the care of the medical and nursing team, which supervises the entire course of the study. The test is performed in a dedicated room equipped with cameras and a polysomnograph.
Polygraphy is a simplified version of polysomnography. The examination is less accurate as it does not include the assessment of the EEG, electrooculogram and muscle tone. Usually, however, it is sufficient for a proper diagnosis of sleep disorders. We conduct the examination at the patient’s home. In some cases, a complete polysomnography may be necessary.
The sleep test does not require special preparation, however, in the evening before the test, you should not drink alcohol or coffee, and do not use sleeping pills and sedatives (unless agreed with your doctor in advance). If you are taking drugs that act on the central nervous system (e.g. psychotropic, sedative, antidepressant) or muscle relaxants (used to treat injuries and diseases of the spine), please inform your doctor before the examination.
