How to diagnose sleep apnea?
A diagnosis of sleep apnea is based on the evaluation of several parameters, including the number of respiratory events per hour of sleep and their effects on different systems, variations in heart rate, oxygen levels in the blood and sleep fragmentation.
For such a diagnosis to be established, you will first have to fill out an in-depth questionnaire on your sleep, then undergo a test in the laboratory or your home according to your doctor’s instructions. Following this test, the collected data is sent to a sleep respirologist for analysis according to predefined medical criteria in order to determine whether you suffer from sleep apnea.
