Riverside is equipped with a sleep lab offering 2 sleep rooms. Sleep studies are done to detect a number of ailments including sleep apnea. This potentially life-threatening disorder can cause you to involuntarily stop breathing while sleeping. Even more alarming, this can happen many times per hour. Sleep apnea has been linked to irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and heart attack. Symptoms you should look for include loud snoring, pauses in breathing and daytime sleepiness. In many cases, we treat sleep apnea with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device. Comfortable and affordable, the CPAP device helps you to breathe easily throughout the night. Other treatment options may be available as well. Risk factors for sleep apnea include: Obesity, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) Stroke, Heart Attack.
