Welcome to the Central California Sleep Center!
Here at CCSC we specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and management of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. We are the only full service Sleep Center in the United States. We focus on the non surgical treatments of O.S.A, primarily Oral Appliance Therapy (O.A.T.) and CPAP use where needed. Our office has been committed to treating the Central Valley for the past ten years, with thousands of patients happily treated.
Our services include:
With the CCSC, we provide state of the art sleep testing in the comfort of your own home. Using the latest technology, our home sleep testing unit is as accurate as the traditional testing at a sleep laboratory, without the wires and monitoring. We can help to screen you for potential apnea, then a home sleep test can help to determine your appropriate course of treatment.
Oral Appliance Therapy is a cutting edge treatment option for OSA, and the preferred alternative to the CPAP for most patients. An oral appliance is a device worn in the mouth, similar to a night guard, which advances the bottom jaw to prevent closure of the upper airway during deep sleep. Not only does it keep the body in REM sleep, but will stop the snoring process in most patients.
Durable Medical Equipment
As a full service sleep center, we can provide CPAP therapy for those patients with severe sleep apnea or those in need of combination therapy. Combination therapy uses a mandibular advancement device to open the upper airway with a significantly reduced pressure from the CPAP. Here at the CCSC, we have a unique way to treat with a combination device that cannot be found anywhere else.
In recent years, sleep problems have become a topic of great focus and concern as science has learned more about its dangers. The most significant symptom of sleep apnea that has captured attention is its association with snoring, a common complaint of spouses. Although the most common, there are other related symptoms, such as sleepiness and fatigue. Recent research has linked many other health problems and consequences such as:
Headaches in the morning
High blood pressure
Heart attacks and strokes
Fatigue-related motor vehicle accidents
Accidents at the workplace
Decreased sex drive
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a highly treatable disease where a person stops breathing—often hundreds of times a night—without ever realizing it.
This condition is a potentially life-threatening condition and is one of the most under-diagnosed of all sleep disorders. (O.S.A.), is associated with obstructions of airflow to the lungs during sleep. This is brought on by a collapse of the upper airway at the back of the throat. Central Apnea is a less common form of sleep apnea in which the brain fails to signal the breathing muscles. Mixed Sleep Apnea is associated with having both central and obstruction issues.
