Effectively identifying and managing Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is important because it can cause a wide array of health risks when left untreated. Co-morbidities may include high blood pressure, diabetes and cardiac problems which can escalate to more serious medical conditions such as heart attacks or stroke. OSA diagnosis starts with your family physician. A Level 3 Sleep Study provides an alternative to inconvenient, intrusive hospital Polysomnography. Screening for sleep apnea using a portable monitoring device, designed for use in the comfort of your own bed at home, is available through VivaCare Medical in Abbotsford.
