Your physician may suspect you have a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea. If your sleep test reveals sleep apnea, the technician will have you use a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine to deliver air pressure through a mask to stop obstructive apnea as well as snoring. The CPAP equipment rapidly improves sleep for most people.

If you have any questions, please call St. Anthony Respiratory Care at 712-794-5214 or contact cindyk@stanthonyhospital.org
