Sleep Apnea shouldn't be ignored and CPAP Therapy is highly effective. But don't just take our word for it...
"...Almost all cases can be treated by using a device called a continuous positive-air pressure, or CPAP, machine. The device sends air through a tube and a mask, into a patient's nose and mouth while they sleep, keeping the airway open."
"Sen. Schumer demands New York’s commuter railroads test engineers for sleep apnea. An investigation determined an engineer’s sleepiness and undiagnosed sleep apnea is to blamed for Metro-North derailment that killed four passengers."
"Sleep apnea may make it hard for you to remember simple things, such as where you parked your car or left your house keys, a small study suggests."
Although each patient experience varies based on individual diagnosis, AST provides the following services.
Each therapist will spend a minimum of one hour with each patient to ensure a proper mask fit, and that the patient understands the equipment and has had all their questions answered. We want patients to feel at ease with their CPAP therapy so they can be confident when using it at home!
An AST clinician will follow up with patients after 72 hours, 1 week, 1 month, 3 month, and 6 months! If a patient is having difficulty acclimating to the equipment after one week, we will gladly go back out for a follow-up visit to assess and resolve any problems that have arisen. Of course, there is no charge for this follow-up visit.
Advanced Sleep Therapy Ltd. can provide the specific care, treatments, and services in your own home! We cover a geographic area that includes a general area of a 70 mile radius from our location. A specific list of counties we provide care, treatments, and services in can be provided upon request. We also handle patient set-ups and appointments in our office.
Upon each patient's initial set-up, they will receive a patient information packet. This packet is full of important educational materials presented in an easy to understand format. Some materials include: Welcome Letter, Service Explanation Form, Home Safety Tips, Emergency Preparedness, Equipment Basics, Cleaning and Replacement Schedules, and a Patient's Bill of Rights. Our aim is to empower each and every patient to achieve the best results from their treatment plan!

Advanced Sleep Therapy Ltd. provides on-call 24-hour access to staff members for emergency situations. An emergency situation means that the care, treatments, and services provided are for a life threatening condition and immediate assistance is needed so that a disruption in care, treatments, and/or services is prevented. If you are experiencing an emergent situation, please call our office and you will be directed as to how to reach our on-call personnel.
If a true life-threatening event is present, clinical personnel are to initiate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and activate the emergency medical system (EMS) by dialing 9-1-1 (unless contraindicated by an advanced directive). Staff not trained in CPR will only activate the EMS (unless contraindicated by an advanced directive) and remain until help arrives. PERSONNEL ARE NOT TO ACTIVATE THE EMS SYSTEM IF DOING SO GOES AGAINST THE ADVANCE DIRECTIVES OF A PATIENT THAT IS ON FILE OR CURRENTLY PRESENT AT THE PLACE OF INCIDENT.
