Globally, all snoring clinics can be divided into two types:
1. Those in which the patient is examined and treated
2. Those who deal only with snoring treatment.
If you have snoring, it is best to choose the first category of institutions. Where, in which clinics is snoring examined, what methods are used for this ?
The classic way of examining a snoring patient is to do a night sleep test: polysomnography. With this type of diagnosis , the activity of the brain is measured (electroencephalography), the study of the tone of the muscles of the larynx (myography), the tone of the eyeballs (oculogram) of respiration, snoring, movements of the chest, abdominal wall, electrocardiogram, blood oxygen saturation. The cumulative assessment of indicators reveals most of the sleep disorders!
Other methods are also used to find out the causes of snoring: cardiorespiratory monitoring, pulse oximetry, fibroendoscopic examination of the nose, pharynx and larynx, etc.
There are few snoring clinics that can investigate nighttime sleep – only about 15 throughout Moscow. One of the best snoring clinics is the Sleep Medicine Center based on the Rehabilitation Clinic in Khamovniki. This clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment that can diagnose snoring, sleep apnea, and more than 80 other sleep-related illnesses.
Snoring contact the clinic for diagnosis before operation is as important as to conduct a survey over any other intervention. After all, the scope of the operation directly depends on the causes of snoring … In addition, the examination is also important before using other, non-surgical types of therapy, since it is the knowledge of the cause that determines the most effective method of treatment.
There are many more snoring clinics that specialize exclusively in soft palate surgery than snoring centers. But, if you are thinking about where to go, we strongly recommend choosing those centers where you will be offered to undergo a diagnosis before treatment. This way you will save time, money and not be disappointed, as doctors, having comprehensively assessed your condition, will offer you a treatment that will surely help.
For patients from Moscow, the service “Polysomnography at home” is available.
