Due to increasing education and awareness of sleep apnea and it’s consequences, we’ve seen an increase in referrals for sleep studies this past year. While some patients are qualifying for home sleep apnea testing (HST), many patients still require an overnight stay in a sleep center. As a result, we are opening two new sleep centers this month in West Los Angeles and Los Alamitos.
Sleep apnea is a serious disease with serious consequences, like heart disease and diabetes. We know that people with untreated severe cases of sleep apnea are more likely to suffer from devastating cardiovascular issues (read our post about the link between sleep apnea and heart disease) and while the link between sleep apnea and diabetes is still being researched, studies show that about 71% of people with diabetes may have sleep apnea (read that post here).
More and more physicians are talking to their patients about sleep disorders and identifying those at the highest risk for sleep apnea.
“Approximately 1 in 15 American adults is afflicted with moderate to severe sleep apnea which is now known to be an independent risk factor for hypertension, cardiovascular disease , cerebrovascular disease and other conditions such as type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, many patients remain undiagnosed. These new facilites should alleviate some of the pressure on physicians who are identifying patients who are at risk for this life-threatening disorder.”
Convenient, Easy to Access Locations Across Southern California
Both locations were selected for their easy access from major freeways, secure on-site parking and after-hours access. Sleep studies are performed on adults and children over one-year-old 7 nights a week (learn about the different types of sleep studies and why they’re performed here).
The West Los Angeles sleep center will have nine private bedrooms and the Los Alamitos facility has five private bedrooms.
With twenty locations across Southern, California, we have the largest network of sleep centers to meet the needs of patients, physicians and medical groups.
We continue to strategically evaluate where our services are needed and are opening these newest locations as a result (click here to download a list of our contracted payers).
“We are happy to announce the opening of these new facilities to serve the needs of the residents of Los Angeles, South Bay and Orange County. Sleep apnea is a serious condition and as more physicians are screening their patients for potential sleep disorders, we expect to continue to see an increase in demand for sleep studies. We are committed to providing affordable, high quality care.”
