The Initial Evaluation:

Man Sleeping - Sleep Apnea Treatment in Marlborough, MA
The evaluation begins with a comprehensive history that includes characteristics of the sleep disorder and daytime symptoms, such as sleepiness, narcolepsy, and diminished attention and concentration. Frequently seen in the physical exam are contributing factors that include obesity, large structures of the pharynx, a large neck circumference, and a small recessed jaw. Medical conditions that contribute to sleep disordered breathing often include asthma, GERD, sinusitis, and neuromuscular disorders.

We offer coordinated care with board certified specialists in ENT, Allergy, Dental Sleep Medicine, Psychology/Behavioral Modification, and Psychiatry. We offer the most advanced technology in sleep diagnostics, in the setting of a sleep environment that simulates the comforts of a bedroom at home, as closely as possible, with a queen-sized adjustable bed, private washroom, and shower. A sleep technician is assigned to each patient to ensure a study of the highest professional quality and to give attention to the patient's comfort. They are in constant contact with the patient using sophisticated audio and visual systems. One of our main tests is the Standard Diagnostic.

Polysomnogram (PSG) Components:

  • Electroencephalogram (EEG) - Monitors are attached to the scalp to record brain activity and the stages and depth of sleep.
  • Electro-Oculogram (EOG) - These monitors record rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.
  • Air Flow - A temperature gauge (thermistor) and air flow pressure transducer system record airflow at the nose and at the mouth.
  • Electromyogram (EMG) - The EMG records muscle tension at the chin and on the limbs.
  • Chest & Abdominal Strain Gauges - These gauges record respiratory effort in order to distinguish central apnea from obstructive apnea.
  • Oximetry - A finger oximeter records oxygen saturation levels during all events.
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG) - The EKG records heart activity throughout the entire study.
  • Microphone - A microphone at the neck records presence, frequency, and depth of snoring.
  • Body Position - A monitor records sleep position and its relation to the sleep disturbance events.
