What To Expect At Your Visit?
There are a variety of successful treatments for sleep apnea including CPAP therapy and oral airway appliances. Our sleep health care professionals are trained. We are here to support your sleep apnea treatment to ensure your health improves and you re-discover a good night’s sleep.
Once you have booked your no-charge in-person or virtual care initial consultation appointment, your journey to re-discover a good night’s sleep begins.
INITIAL CONSULTATION AND DIAGNOSTIC
In the initial consultation, we will review your medical history and discuss any sleeping disorders you may be experiencing. We will then show you how to use the free sleep apnea testing device, a small home sleep recorder worn overnight while you sleep in the comfort of your own home. In-lab testing is also offered (see below). This easy-to-use testing device will be worn in the comfort of your own home, helping us determine if you’re having difficulty breathing at night. It measures oxygen levels, heart rate, snoring, body position, and whether your breathing pattern changes, such as stop breathing or partial blockage of the airway.
Once the home sleep study is complete, one of our certified sleep specialists will review the data to ensure that the treatment recommendation meets your requirements. They will then send a final report to the referring physician. Your assigned practitioner will explain the cause and recommended treatment options in detail and provide ongoing support to ensure a great night’s sleep.
With your consent, we will submit pre-approval documentation to your insurance provider to determine eligibility. To ensure there are no surprises, hidden fees, or costs to you.
CHOOSE YOUR TREATMENT
We’ll set up a custom sleep treatment plan that is convenient and comfortable. If your doctor recommends CPAP therapy, a state-of-the-art CPAP will be issued, and we will custom fit your mask to ensure a perfect fit. You will be surprised how small and quiet your new CPAP is. We will then monitor you remotely for fourteen days as well as make adjustments to your CPAP. You will be scheduled for either an in-person follow-up or via zoom/Teams or phone.
What happens when you are unable to tolerate CPAP therapy?
CPAP non-compliance happens to over 40% of CPAP users, which means that patients cannot tolerate wearing the mask for more than 4-hours per night. The patient will need to demonstrate non-compliance over a 14-day usage period. Some insurance companies may request 30-day non-compliance reports. Once the patient is deemed non-compliant, we will begin switching them over to a mandibular repositioning device / dental device for sleep apneas such as the SomnoMed Avant.
FOLLOW UP ON RESULTS
Our complimentary patient support follow-up program is our commitment to your health and sleep apnea treatment. Even after you are sleeping peacefully and own your equipment, we will continue to see you every six months for the next five years. We want to make sure you have long-term success and that your equipment needs are maintained, and that therapy is optimized.
