How are sleep problems diagnosed?
First of all, you can fill in this health questionnaire, which will support the diagnosis provided to our patients by our specialists.
The study of patients with possible sleep disorders includes a medical history with a complete general physical examination, the administration of questionnaires and sleep diaries and the performance of a sleep study (respiratory polygraphy).
At Turó Park Clinics we offer a circuit of diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders through the study 24h with a portable monitor (ambulatory respiratory polygraphy). This is a test that is performed during the night at the patient's home, with a device that records nasal flow, snoring, thoracic-abdominal movements and blood oxygen concentration.
For whom is a sleep study indicated?
Ambulatory polysomnography is indicated in people who present:
- Insufficient or poor restorative sleep
- Persistent snoring and breathing pauses during sleep.
- Tiredness or daytime sleepiness
- Feeling of discomfort in the legs that is relieved by moving the legs
- Restless sleep with excessive movements
- Strange behaviors while asleep (talking, screaming, pacing)
