Pulmonary Function Test (PFT)
Pulmonary function testing is an accurate & objective way to diagnose and measure the severity of wide range of pulmonary disorders.
Person inhales & exhales forcefully through a mouthpiece that is attached to spirometer. This enables pulmonologist to evaluate various lung functions in a form of lung volumes and respiratory flow rates.
Sleep study (Polysomnography) is a very advanced & promising diagnostic test that provides objective evaluation of your sleep. Sleep study records your brain waves (EEG), heartbeats (ECG) and breathing as you sleep. It also charts your eye movements (EOG), limb movements and oxygen (SpO2) in your blood. This data helps your doctor make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan for various sleep disorders.
BhaktiVedanta Hospital & Research Institute is equipped with state of art Video Polysomnography lab for Level 1 Diagnostic/Titration/Split Night sleep studies.
Dr. Ajay Godse has been trained at Emory Sleep Center, Atlanta, GA, USA and completed International Fellowship in Sleep Medicine awarded by American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).
You should not have portable sleep study (without EEG) if
In such cases, comprehensive an in-lab sleep study is appropriate.
It is a common and serious sleep disorder that causes you stop breathing during sleep. An apnea, or temporary pause in breathing, is caused by the tissue in the back of the throat collapsing.
The muscles of the upper airway relax when you fall asleep. If you sleep on your back, gravity can cause the tongue to fall back. This narrows the airway, which reduces the amount of air that can reach your lungs. When this happens, you may snore loudly or making choking noises as you try to breathe. Your brain and body becomes oxygen deprived and you may wake up. This may happen a few times a night, or in more severe cases, several hundred times a night.
Sleep apnea can make you wake up in the morning feeling tired or un-refreshed even though you have had a full night of sleep. During the day, you may feel fatigued, have difficulty concentrating or you may even unintentionally fall asleep. This is because your body is waking up numerous times throughout the night, even though you might not be conscious of each awakening.
The lack of oxygen your body receives can have negative long-term consequences for your health. This includes:
On the day of your in-lab sleep study, you should
A sleep technologist will attach sensors to your body. The sensors, which are glued or taped to you, monitor your body while you sleep. These sensors are painless. The sensors measure your brain waves, chin muscle activity, heart rate, breathing, oxygen levels, and leg movements.
The wires are long enough to let you move around and turn over in bed. At the start of the test, you will be asked to move your eyes, clench your teeth and move your legs. This will make sure that the sensors are working.
Many patients do not sleep as well as they would at home. Occasionally, you may be prescribed medication to help you sleep during the in-lab sleep study. This typically does not affect the results. Nearly everyone falls asleep during an in-lab study.
In the morning, you may be asked to fill out a morning questionnaire that asks about the quality of your sleep. The in-lab study is complete once you are awake and the sensors have been removed.
A sleep technologist will first score your sleep study by marking your sleep stages and identifying any events of abnormal breathing or leg movement. The trained sleep physician will then review the results to determine what kind of sleep problem you may have
If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, next step is ‘Titration’ study. During CPAP titration, the goal is to find the right amount of air pressure through a mask you wear while you sleep, to prevent your upper airway from collapsing. This will eliminate the breathing pauses caused by sleep apnea, so you will no longer snore or make choking noises in your sleep. You will be able to sleep through the night without your body waking up from lack of oxygen.
A ‘Split Night’ sleep study (initial diagnostic PSG followed by CPAP titration on the same night) can be performed for moderate & severe OSA (AHI > 20 documented in first 2 hours of diagnostic study) supported by clinical judgment.
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the frontline treatment for obstructive sleep apnea and recommended for all cases. CPAP is a lifestyle change. It works best when used every night, for the whole time you are sleeping. You should also use CPAP when you are napping.
CPAP can prevent or reverse serious consequences of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The consistent treatment can give you many health benefits
Oral appliance therapy & upper airway surgery may be a part of the treatment plan for few patients (with mild sleep apnea) who cannot tolerate wearing a CPAP mask.
