Where To Go?
The medical diagnosis of a patient with sleep apnea should be made by a pulmonologist or neurophysiologist who should be consulted at an early stage.
It is also possible to reach this diagnosis through cases of detection of patients referred by doctors in General Medicine and Dentistry.
Our sleep unit consists of a team of doctors from different specialties, including pulmonologists, neurophysiologists, ENT, etc. who focus on studying and treating sleep disorders with specialized tools and means.
Should I Be Worried?
According to the latest studies, in Spain there are about 7 million people suffering from sleep apnea, of which only 1,500,000 are being treated with CPAP. The rest is made up of the almost 5.5 million people who are undiagnosed.
Among them, 5% use the Mandibular Advancement Device as a treatment and many thousands of people have failed to adapt to the use of CPAP and are therefore untreated.
