The Sleep Center is the first to choose simple and economical examination which was first introduced in England. It comprises oximetry, snoring monitor, detection of physical movements, pulse wave analysis and videos and omits electroencephalogram. The results of the examinations are digitalized and can be analyzed at a glance. Also, we choose treatment that is right for the patient by establishing a coordinated care system with clinics including pulmonology, otolaryngology and dentistry.
People with obstructive sleep apnea experience difficulties in daily life.
First of all, they do not feel refreshed after 7-8 hours of sleep like others because the quality of sleep is poor. So, they often feel dull and blank out during meetings or dangerous jobs but cannot help but doze off. And they are not clear-headed so it becomes harder for the patients to listen carefully to others and understand them to communicate their feelings. Many of them often experience difficulties in personal relationships as they are easily irritated. This is not inevitable or uncontrollable because the treatment that can put an end to obstructive sleep apnea is available at Sanggye Paik Hospital Sleep Center.
