Sleep Study Evaluations
Sleep disordered breathing abnormalities occur in the general population with a frequency of 2% - 4% (similar to diabetes and asthma). If left untreated this disorder can cause systemic and pulmonary hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, increased risk of stroke, cognitive impairment and impaired quality of life. Diagnosis and treatment of sleep-disordered breathing has been shown to improve and abolish the above mentioned physiologic abnormalities. The pulmonary critical care medicine division at Queens Hospital Center offers diagnostic and therapeutic treatment options for these disorders in a state of the art facility.
