Sleep Apnea Diagnosis

If you suffer from sleep apnea, or suspect you do but aren’t sure, you understandably want to seek out a professional for a timely, accurate diagnosis in order to get the proper treatment.

The Sleep Apnea Diagnostic Process

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) can only be diagnosed by a physician and after the patient has had a sleep study. Here at the Sleep Apnea Center of Michigan, we don’t make you stay overnight at a sleep lab. We know how invasive and unappealing that is: probably the reason why so many people don’t seek sleep apnea treatment in the first place!

Instead, we send you home with a home sleep study for your convenience and comfort.  We know in-lab sleep studies are considered the gold standard of testing; however, many insurance companies now stipulate home sleep tests be conducted first because they cost less, are easy to conduct and are more accurate. Because you are in your own natural environment, your sleep habits will be more in line with what you go through every night.

In any case, these home tests are painless, safe, and covered by most insurance plans.

Our diagnostic workup is comprehensive, as we devote a great deal of time to reviewing your medical history in detail. We also complete a head and neck evaluation using the latest technology, such as 3D scans of the head. Proper diagnosis and emphasis on origin rather than solely on symptoms is important to ensuring successful, long-term treatment results. After we have come up with a diagnosis, we will recommend a non-surgical treatment plan for rehabilitation.

This may be something as simple as a customized, 3D printed oral appliance that adjusts the positioning of the jaw while you slumber.
