Critical Care, Pulmonary & Sleep Associates offers specialist care to patients suffering from sleep disorders
Denver, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/15/2017 -- For those who get enough sleep, it is easily taken for granted. Sleep is the only natural regenerative state of the brain and as such, it is an integral part of healthy living. Sleep problems can derive from poor quality or lack of quantity of sleep. Sleep specialists at Critical Care, Pulmonary and Sleep Associates specialize in treating all kinds of sleep disorders including complex neurological sleep disorders and high altitude sleep problems. Lack of necessary sleep can translate into numerous problems ranging from memory problems to accidents, to depression, to impaired judgment, and can affect the overall quality of life every day.
Recognizing that a sleep disorder may be the triggering factor is the first step to looking for a sleep specialist or sleep doctor to help diagnose the problem.
Every case is unique although a good starting point is usually an evaluation of risk factors by looking at the medical history of the patient and a thorough physical examination. Sleep patterns may need to be studied in a sleep lab to aid diagnosis. Treatment plans are tailored to each patient.
A representative from the clinic stated " Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is present in about 30% of hospitalized patients, many of whom are undiagnosed. To address this challenge, a multidisciplinary OSA clinical effectiveness team was formed at St Anthony Central Hospital in Denver, CO, consisting of our physicians in collaboration with Centura Health. We have developed comprehensive inpatient screening protocols, management protocols, policies, procedures and communication tools."
Clinics can be found in Denver, North Denver, Lakewood, Castle Rock, and Parker, with outreach locations across Colorado in Wray, Frisco, Yuma and Del Norte.
