Sleep Apnea Screening

A sleep apnea screening in Chandler and Tucson, Arizona, and Sandy, Utah, is a valuable tool used to identify individuals who may be at risk or potentially have sleep apnea. The screening process involves a series of assessments and evaluations designed to evaluate sleep quality and identify potential signs and symptoms of the disorder. The goal of a sleep apnea screening is to gather information that can help our dentist, Dr. Brett Barney, determine whether further diagnostic testing or treatment is necessary.

During a sleep apnea screening, we begin by conducting a thorough evaluation of the patients’ medical history, including any reported sleep-related symptoms, such as snoring, daytime sleepiness or breathing pauses during sleep. We may also inquire about other relevant factors like lifestyle habits, family history and the presence of any underlying medical conditions.

In some cases, a home sleep apnea test may be recommended as part of the screening process. We utilize the WatchPAT® home sleep study, which measures various parameters, including oxygen levels, heart rate, breathing patterns and snoring. This device is worn at home while the individual sleeps and provides valuable data that can be used to assess the presence and severity of sleep apnea.

Once we have your results and the information we need, our dentist can give you a proper diagnosis and move forward with the next steps to improve your health. If you have any questions, call us today!
