Sleep Medicine Evaluation and Treatment, Ashburn, VA

Depending on the type of sleep issues their patients have, sleep doctors suggest a range of tests and treatments, including:


Sleep Consultation: This is used to evaluate and get to the bottom of a patient’s sleep issues. It takes a comprehensive look at a patient’s health history and sleep habits.

Blood tests: Blood tests can be done to look for things that can mess with your sleep, like thyroid issues.

Sleep Tests:

 Sleep Apnea Tests Include:

 Non-invasive sleep tests are used to assess and diagnose sleep disorders. They’re done based on the type of sleep disorder you suspect. For example, if you think you have sleep apnea, they’ll observe you while you sleep in a lab overnight. If you think you have narcolepsy, they’ll watch you while you sleep and wake up for a few naps in the lab.

  • Nocturnal Polysomnography – Nocturnal polysomnography (NPSG) is a comprehensive sleep study conducted overnight to evaluate and diagnose various sleep disorders. This test involves monitoring multiple physiological parameters while an individual sleeps. The purpose is to gather data on different aspects of sleep and identify any abnormalities or disruptions in the sleep cycle.
  • Home Sleep Tests – these tests, while not as thorough or accurate, are less invasive and can be carried out in the comfort of your own home. They typically measure blood oxygen levels, heart rate, breathing patterns and airflow.

Sleep Log  for tracking things like when you go to bed, when you wake up, and how sleepy you are during the day. It’s used to help diagnose and treat insomnia and other sleep disorders.

During sleep tests, patients are hooked up to sensors that determines on how they’re sleeping, how they’re moving around, how much oxygen they’re getting, and how they’re breathing.

Note: If you have sleep apnea, it’s important to stay away from heavy drinking and taking sleeping pills or any other drugs that can cause heavy sedation, which can make your sleep get worse. Talk to your doctor about any medications that can cause this and how to avoid them.


Based on the outcome of your sleep apnea test(s) your sleep doctor may suggest prescription therapy or treatment. While a number of treatment options are available, one of the most commonly prescribed and effective treatments for both moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a positive airway pressure machine (CPAP machine).

Other common treatment options include a nighttime mandibular advancement device that works to move the lower jaw or tongue forward, as well as various surgical procedures.

Surgery (when required) may involve:

  • Tissue removal
  • Tissue shrinkage
  • Jaw re-positioning
  • Implants
  • Nerve stimulation
  • Establishing a new passageway for air

Lifestyle Changes that May Prove Effective:

  • Weight loss
  • Exercise
  • Avoidance of alcohol, sleeping pills and tranquilizers
  • Sleeping on side or abdomen vs on back
  • Stopping smoking

Types of Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a type of sleep disorder that causes shortness of breath or shallow breathing while sleeping. These short bursts of breathing can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes and may happen multiple times in an hour. There are three types of sleep apneas:

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). When the muscles in the back of your throat relax too much, it causes a blockage in your airways, temporarily stopping or stopping your breathing.

Central Sleep Apnea (CSA): CSA is a less common form of sleep apnea. It occurs when the brain is unable to send the correct signals to the muscles responsible for breathing. In contrast to OSA, there are no obstructions to the airways in CSA.

Complex/Mixed Sleep Apnea: This is a combination of obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea.
