Are You Sleepy?
About Kansas Sleep Medicine
Kansas Sleep Medicine is a fully integrated sleep center with the ability to diagnose and manage sleep disorders. Our mission is to help patients get a good night’s sleep.
The symptoms of a sleep disorder are sometimes subtle, such as decreased energy, depression, or daytime sleepiness, and are often misdiagnosed. If left untreated, sleep disorders can develop into more severe health issues, which could include heart problems, difficulty concentrating, irritability and pain sensitivity.
Dr. Thomas Bloxham has over 30 years of experience practicing clinical sleep medicine. His team of board certified sleep specialists at Kansas Sleep Medicine provide evaluation and treatment options to help you get a good night’s sleep.
Do You Snore?
When a person snores, their breathing is generally obstructed in some way during sleep. Snoring might be reduced by making simple lifestyle changes, like losing weight and avoiding alcohol use close to bedtime, but snoring could also be the result of a more serious condition. Anyone with snoring plus excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart problems should be evaluated for Obstructive Sleep Apnea. In some patients, Obstructive Sleep Apnea can lead to serious health complications including heart attack and stroke.
