Through clinical study, Albany Area Hospital & Medical Center’s health care providers help patients uncover their specific barriers to sleep. They also provide follow-up care to manage sleep disorders and help patients receive restful sleep and regain control of their lives.
A widely accepted treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea is positive airway pressure therapy, which includes using a bedside device to deliver pressurized air through a small mask or nasal pillow system. The device is called a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure system – CPAP for short.
Regular use of CPAP therapy can dramatically improve your quality of sleep, but it doesn’t always happen overnight. That is why Albany Area Hospital sleep services will be there each step of the way, guiding you through a phased approach to better sleep.
1 in 4 patients are at risk for sleep disorders, with up to 90 percent of those still unidentified. Speak with your health care provider about your sleep concerns.
