Sleep Studies Performed in the Wesley Chapel, FL, Area
Sleep studies are used to observe and identify disorders that negatively impact sleeping habits, such as sleep apnea, insomnia, hypersomnia, parasomnias, and other conditions. Consult with Dr. Brett Scotch at Scotch Institute of Ear Nose & Throat in Wesley Chapel, Florida, if you believe you may have a sleeping disorder. Dr. Scotch is a board-certified otolaryngologist and sleep medicine specialist who also serves as medical director at a nearby sleep laboratory.
As a patient at Scotch Institute of ENT, your concerns will be carefully evaluated by Dr. Scotch. Depending on your symptoms, overall health, and other factors, Dr. Scotch may recommend a sleep study. In short, sleep studies are pain-free, overnight procedures where the patient is asked to do one simple task: sleep. As you rest in a comfortable bed, a sleep technician will record several biological functions (eye movement, muscle tone, heart rhythm, etc.) through strategically placed monitors. The results of the study will then be sent to Dr. Scotch, who will establish a diagnosis and suggest appropriate treatment options based on your evaluation.
Of course, the occasional sleeping struggle is perfectly normal, so how can you tell if your condition warrants professional treatment or one of our sleep studies? If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, consider visiting Scotch Institute of ENT in Wesley Chapel, FL:
- Do you continually have difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep?
