Diagnosing Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Although you may experience the symptoms that suggest OSA, often times, it is your bed partner or family member who notices your sleep problem. You should talk to your doctor if you think you may be experiencing symptoms of OSA. To officially diagnose the problem, your doctor may arrange a sleep test called a polysomnogram (PSG)
. This painless, all-night test will study your sleep patterns. It is typically done in a special sleep center.
