It's just sleep...
A restful sleep is very important for your performance and life quality. At night body and mind relax, breathing and heartbeat slow down, the brain processes the events of the day and learns from it. Hormones are newly formed and important repair processes occur in the body.
And .... when sleep is disturbed
Unrefreshing sleep is a 24-hour problem with many negative impacts on the entire day. We know today that nocturnal pauses in breathing (sleep apnea) and snoring are not only disturbing for the partner but in some cases can also be very dangerous and even life threatening.
Recurrent breathing pauses in sleep can result in daytime sleepiness, power loss, headaches, difficulty concentrating and forced sleep. Insufficient oxygen saturation and increased airway resistance can increase blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmias with the risk of heart attack or stroke. Loss of libido and impotence are another possible consequence.
There are almost 90 different diseases in sleep medicine. Since the different sleep disorders can usually have multiple causes a comprehensive medical history and diagnosis is required.
What is Intersleep?
As a competence center for sleep medicine and diagnostics, INTERSLEEP carries out treatment of sleep disorders at the highest standard. Specialists for somnology (sleep medicine), pulmonary medicine, internal medicine and cardiology, ENT medicine, allergy medicine and dentistry will help you to find the optimal diagnosis and therapy. These specialists all work together in one practice, therefore you don´t have to make various appointments at different locations or deal with slow communication between multiple specialists. Our center consists of the INTERSLEEP practice and a sleep laboratory. For a detailed medical history we first take a polygraph or Apnea examination (using a two-millimeter thick flexible probe to measure air flow into the nose and throat, pressure ratios of the upper respiratory tract and the alteration, the heart rate and blood oxygen content. Microphones record snoring sounds and the change in body position during sleep). Increased breathing, breathing stops and narrow parts of the upper respiratory tract can be tracked. If an examination at the sleep laboratory is required (polysomnography measures brain waves, heart rate, respiratory motion on the chest and abdomen, muscle tension, eye movement, air flow at the mouth and nose, body position, snoring and oxygen saturation in the blood.) you will quickly receive an appointment at our sleep laboratory.
