Keywords:

At the Sleep Apnea Clinic, we examine and treat sleep apnea for adults in Helsinki.

If sleep apnea is suspected, you will need to undergo basic examinations first in primary health care (health center or private sector), and if you are diagnosed with sleep apnea or further examinations are needed, a referral to the Sleep Research Outpatient Clinic is made.

Our usual patient groups are patients with at least moderate sleep apnea for whom Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatment is considered. A particularly challenging patient group consists of patients with daytime sleepiness and patients who need special attention due to their profession. As diagnostic examinations in the Sleep Apnea Clinic’s sleep laboratory, we perform smaller polygraphies (concise sleep polygraphy) both in the hospital and at home, and also more extensive polysomnographies both in the hospital and at home. These examinations are used to diagnose sleep-related problems, such as interruptions in breathing, i.e., sleep apnea.

CPAP therapy supplies for Sleep Apnea Outpatient Clinic's patients

Our hospital will distribute one air hose, one humidifier, and one mask per year, in accordance with the mask selection we have available in the hospital.

You do not need to book an appointment to pick up the supplies.
