Do you snore? Is someone's snoring keeping you up at night?

If so, you are not alone. 40 million Americans suffer from some form of sleep-disordered breathing. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common form of sleep-disordered breathing and affects an estimated 18 million people in the United States: 2% of middle-aged women and 4% of middle-aged men. The vast majority of patients are undiagnosed.

If left untreated, OSA can have serious and potentially life-threatening complications, including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, depression, impaired cognitive performance, and increased accident rates. It can also effect your quality of life by causing short term memory loss, excessive daytime sleepiness, and impotence, just to name a few.

Excessive daytime sleepiness could indicate an underlying sleep disorder. Take our sleep quiz below to determine whether or not you need further evaluation by a physician.

The following test is a gold standard in sleep
medicine. Please rate the chance of dozing
in the following situations:

0 = Would never doze

1 = Slight chance of dozing

2 = Moderate chance of dozing

3 = High chance of dozing

You may print our Sleep Study Prescription Form and take it with you to an appointment with your personal physician. If your physician determines that you would benefit from a sleep evaluation, they can fill out the form and fax it to Sleep Diagnostics of America to get you on the right track to good health and a better nights sleep. I f you do not currently have a personal physician, contact us and we will gladly recommend numerous Physicians who can help evaluate your situation.
