Sleep Centers of Middle Tennessee has been successfully treating patients with obstructive sleep apnea for 25 years. A recent study, which included 5000 consecutive patients, revealed that nearly 80% of our patients use their CPAP long-term compared to 40% nationally. That’s almost twice as many of our patients who wear their CPAP which lead to better outcomes. That’s a number we’re proud of, and we’re working hard to see to it that all of our patients follow their treatment plans to feel better and experience the benefits!
If you’re currently suffering from or experiencing any of the medical conditions listed above, treatment of sleep apnea has been shown to improve the symptoms and/or decrease the risk of each of the above associated diseases.
