Sleep Study

More than 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders for days or weeks at a time, with at least 40 million suffering for longer periods of time. Sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), are often linked to other health complications, from diabetes to heart disease. Most adults with OSA and other sleep conditions are also overweight.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, your bariatric care team may request a sleep study to learn more:
  • Excessive, loud snoring
  • Choking/gasping for air
  • Long pauses in your breathing while sleeping
  • Excessive drowsiness and/or “dozing off” during waking hours
  • Morning headaches
  • Waking up sweating
By screening for OSA, your bariatric surgeon will be better able to diagnose and treat your sleep disorder prior to surgery, therefore reducing your risk of postoperative complications. A preoperative sleep test (polysomnography) will be conducted, and if OSA or another condition is detected, you will undergo treatment for the issue before undergoing the bariatric procedure.
