BOCA RATON, Fla. – May 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Sleep Solvers, a division of Sleep Diagnostic Centers LLC, announces the grand opening of their Boca Raton sleep laboratory. They offer sleep diagnostic testing and treatment programs for patients suspected of, or suffering from one or more of the over 70 types of sleep related problems. Unlike the conventional, hospital or clinical-based sleep laboratory, Sleep Solvers’ use of hotel-style diffuses the clinical appearance and feel of sleep diagnostic testing and treatment to create a comfortable and calming environment in order to alleviate the fear and anxiety of sleep testing and treatment.
“After years of working in the sleep industry, I knew that there was a need for a better environment to produce superior patient outcomes and treatment compliance. We understood that if we could alleviate the fear that patients experience when going to the hospital or even a medical office, we could influence more people suffering from or suspected of having a sleep disorder to seek diagnosis and treatment by visiting a sleep laboratory,” said Nancy Andersen, president of Sleep Solvers.
More than 70 million American adults suffer from sleep related issues. However, the very nature of sleep disorders makes them difficult to detect. In fact, most people suffering from a suspected sleep disorder remain undiagnosed and untreated.
Lack of widespread education and public awareness is partly to blame, however many people minimize sleep disorders, not realizing that they are often precursors of other serious health threats, including heart attack and stroke.
“Patients are usually unaware of the severe disturbances they experience at night because they typically have no memory of it. However, the sleepiness, fatigue and mood problems a patient with a sleep disorder may suffer from increase the likelihood that a patient will suffer a stroke, hypertension, a heart attack or other heart disease. Increased fatigue may also lead to work injuries, car accidents and any number of mishaps,” said Andersen.
It is also important to remove the fear of having a sleep study done. Those who know they need a sleep study many times avoid it or have unsuccessful results since the environment in which the sleep study is typically conducted is not conducive to a successful study.
Creating a safe, welcoming and patient-centered environment has helped Sleep Solvers to generate positive patient results and long-term treatment compliance.
