Modern day lifestyles, stressful professional lives, gadgets like iPads and laptops which keep people awake until late are major factors for Sleep Disorders.

There is a myth in society that snoring is a sign of good sleep but that is not true. Snoring may be a symptom of a serious sleep disorder called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a disease commonly found among both males and females. People with Obstructive Sleep Apnea have pauses in breathing for 10 to 100 seconds during sleep and often experience loud snoring, choking and gasping as they struggle to breathe again, due to excessive fat deposition in the oro-pharynx.

CIMS Hospital has a state-of-the-art Sleep Lab to help you sleep better, safer and faster!

Obstructive Sleep Apnea, when untreated and unrecognized, leads to heart failure, respiratory problem, hypertension and high blood pressure. Obstructive Sleep Apnea assumes greater importance when it occurs in patients with cardiovascular diseases. The only way to diagnose and start appropriate treatment in Sleep Apnea is to conduct a sleep study and prevent any serious complications and even prevent unexplained death during sleep.

Who needs a Sleep Study?

  • All individuals who snore at night
  • Disturbed night sleep
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Breathlessness that wakes you from sleep
  • Choking at sleep
  • Daytime drowsiness

With no medication available for Obstructive Sleep Apnea in India, and the high prevalence rate of Obstructive Sleep Apnea in the middle aged Indians, the concept of Sleep Lab is gaining significance.

CIMS Hospital Sleep Lab is designed to evaluate, diagnose, treat and help patients manage Obstructive Sleep Apnea. A Sleep Study examines sleep patterns, body movements, snoring, airflow, stages of sleep, heart rate, blood pressure, ECG and others. It helps the experts in locating the exact problem with the patient and dealing with it accordingly.
