Good sleep for good health
C-Care’s Sleep Lab provides effective and helpful treatments for those suffering from sleep apnoea and other sleep disorders. This unit is equipped with cutting edge technology to monitor breathing, movement of patients and sleeping patterns along with any other sleep disorders.
Using a multi-disciplinary approach, the sleep lab’s mission is to focus on the quality of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, ensuring the patients’ care and satisfaction are top priorities
Firstly, the sleep physician will determine if you have health problems that possibly relate to poor sleep patterns and then arrange a sleep study if required.
This could be in the form of a polysomnography in the sleep lab overnight, a short sleep study or a respiratory polygraphy, either in the ambulatory or in the Sleep Lab.
Then there will be a debriefing session with the sleep physician, where the analysis of testing is explained, the diagnosis is provided and a treatment plan discussed.
Our Different Sleep Tests
The respiratory polygraphy
This study records your breathing rate and airflow, heart rate and oxygen levels and is performed in the home. The doctor or technician will train you in using the equipment and will not be present overnight du ring the study.
This study is performed overnight in the sleep laboratory (a hospital private room). Several body functions are measured during sleep including brain activity, breathing, heart rate, body movement, and eye movement. The medical team is present and observing during this study.
Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT): This study is conducted to determine how sleepy you are during the day. The MSLT is used most often to diagnose narcolepsy (inability to stay awake during the day) and see what might be causing excessive daytime sleepiness.
Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT): This study is done to see how well you can remain awake when you are in a situation that encourages you to feel sleepy.
Symptoms of sleep disorders
Most common symptoms:
- Snoring loudly during sleep
- Sleeping in a fitful or restless manner
- Feeling very sleepy during the day
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Frequently awaking at night and/or early in the morning
- Difficulty waking up in morning
If you have one or more of these signs, you may have a sleep problem. An appointment with our sleep specialist is strongly advised.
Podiatry is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions affecting the lower limbs (feet, ankles, and legs), while taking into consideration the overall posture. Podiatrists, also known as foot doctors, are trained healthcare professionals who specialize in caring for the foot, including the skin and nails. They can diagnose and treat a wide range of lower limb-related conditions, such as foot, ankle, and knee injuries, deformities, and nerve and circulatory disorders. Podiatrists may also provide preventive care, such as routine foot examinations and advice on proper foot care. Additionally, they can supply custom-made orthotic insoles to correct foot and lower limb problems, which can improve the patient’s posture.
