There are several clinical conditions linked to sleep disorders, showing their potentially serious health impacts. Patients diagnosed with heart diseases, such as hypertension (high blood pressure), heart failure, strokes, and sexual dysfunction may all be seen to have a connection with some degree of sleep disorder. Studies have found that patients with sleep disorders have a significantly higher chance of suffering from myocardial infarction (heart attack) or stroke. Moreover, each year thousands of cardiovascular (heart-related) deaths are attributed to sleep apneas and other types of sleep disorders.

Clinical studies also indicate that patients with Type 2 diabetes (poor blood sugar control) or show higher hemoglobin A1C levels (an indicator for blood sugar control) also report poor sleep quality and quantity.

At American Hospital Dubai, your doctor may recommend a scientific sleep study, known as polysomnography (PSG) to ascertain the exact nature and extent of your sleep disorder.

The study will be performed in the Hospital’s specially equipped and comfortable Sleep Laboratory, where our comprehensive sleep monitoring system will monitor and capture activity while you sleep. A dedicated PSG technologist will attend to you as a patient during the entire duration of the sleep study. Prioritize your sleep clinic Dubai visit and make arrangements to visit it early.

This study is usually performed by the patient at home using a simplified Sleep Monitoring Device, attached to the body with oronasal prongs, chest and abdominal belts and a pulse oximeter probe. The PSG technologist or Respiratory Therapist will provide detailed instructions on the application, operation, and maintenance of the monitoring device.
