Pulmonary Function Test (PFT)



Pulmonary function testing is an accurate & objective way to diagnose and measure the severity of wide range of pulmonary disorders.


How to do it?


Person inhales & exhales forcefully through a mouthpiece that is attached to spirometer. This enables pulmonologist to evaluate various lung functions in a form of lung volumes and respiratory flow rates.


Indications




  • Unexplained recurrent cough with or without cold.

  • Lung function assessment for current & ex-smokers

  • Diagnosis & monitoring of Asthma, Reactive Airway Disease, COPD, Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), Occupational Lung diseases and chest cage deformity.

  • Pre-operative risk assessment tool for major thoracic & abdominal surgeries.



Sleep Study (Polysomnography)


Sleep study (Polysomnography) is a very advanced & promising diagnostic test that provides objective evaluation of your sleep. Sleep study records your brain waves (EEG), heartbeats (ECG) and breathing as you sleep. It also charts your eye movements (EOG), limb movements and oxygen (SpO2) in your blood. This data helps your doctor make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan for various sleep disorders.


Indications




  • Snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, choking or pauses in breathing while sleeping, morning headache, dry mouth at wake-up can be signals of Sleep Disordered Breathing in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (OHS) and Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS).

  • Sleep apnea should be ruled out in case of sub-optimal control of Hypertension, Diabetes, Cerebro-vascular accidents, cardiac arrhythmias, Asthma, COPD and severe Pulmonary Hypertension in spite of optimal medical management.

  • Evaluate abnormal behaviors during sleep due to parasomnias

  • Diagnose narcolepsy or hypersomnia along with the MSLT

  • Diagnose sleep related epilepsy



BhaktiVedanta Hospital & Research Institute is equipped with state of art Video Polysomnography lab for Level 1 Diagnostic/Titration/Split Night sleep studies.


Dr. Ajay Godse has been trained at Emory Sleep Center, Atlanta, GA, USA and completed International Fellowship in Sleep Medicine awarded by American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).


TYPES OF SLEEP STUDY




  • An in-lab sleep study (Polysomnography/Level 1) provides the most complete evaluation (Gold Standard) of your sleep. This type of sleep study requires you to stay overnight in sleep lab.

  • Portable home sleep study devices (Level 3 & 4) record limited parameters and are used for screening of isolated Obstructive Sleep Apnea.


You should not have portable sleep study (without EEG) if



  • You have certain medical conditions including pulmonary, cardiac, neuromuscular and other sleep co-morbidities.

  • The physician suspects you may have another sleep disorder.



In such cases, comprehensive an in-lab sleep study is appropriate.


Multispeciality Hospital in Mumbai


WHY A SLEEP STUDY?




  • Test for sleep-related breathing disorders including sleep apnea

  • Evaluate abnormal behaviors during sleep due to parasomnias

  • Diagnose narcolepsy or hypersomnia along with the MSLT

  • Diagnose sleep related epilepsy

  • Titrate or calibrate the levels of continuous positive airway pressure in patients who receive CPAP therapy for sleep related breathing disorders

  • Determine why treatment for a sleep disorder is not working.



WHAT IS OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA (OSA)?


It is a common and serious sleep disorder that causes you stop breathing during sleep. An apnea, or temporary pause in breathing, is caused by the tissue in the back of the throat collapsing.


Eye Hospital in Mumbai


The muscles of the upper airway relax when you fall asleep. If you sleep on your back, gravity can cause the tongue to fall back. This narrows the airway, which reduces the amount of air that can reach your lungs. When this happens, you may snore loudly or making choking noises as you try to breathe. Your brain and body becomes oxygen deprived and you may wake up. This may happen a few times a night, or in more severe cases, several hundred times a night.


Sleep apnea can make you wake up in the morning feeling tired or un-refreshed even though you have had a full night of sleep. During the day, you may feel fatigued, have difficulty concentrating or you may even unintentionally fall asleep. This is because your body is waking up numerous times throughout the night, even though you might not be conscious of each awakening.


The lack of oxygen your body receives can have negative long-term consequences for your health. This includes:




  • High blood pressure

  • Heart disease

  • Stroke

  • Pre-diabetes and diabetes

  • Depression

  • Kidney disease (ESRD/CRF)



PREPARATION FOR SLEEP STUDY


On the day of your in-lab sleep study, you should




  • Try to follow your regular routine as much as possible

  • Avoid napping

  • Eliminate use of tea/coffee after lunch

  • Shower or avoid using hair sprays or gels that can interfere with the sleep recording

  • Take your regular medications as usual.

  • When you arrive, a sleep technologist will ask about your sleep habits. There may be a pre-sleep questionnaire for you to fill out

  • There will not be any other patients in your room. You will have a bathroom available to use. You can sleep in your regular comfortable pajamas or clothes



HOW IS A SLEEP STUDY DONE?


A sleep technologist will attach sensors to your body. The sensors, which are glued or taped to you, monitor your body while you sleep. These sensors are painless. The sensors measure your brain waves, chin muscle activity, heart rate, breathing, oxygen levels, and leg movements.


The wires are long enough to let you move around and turn over in bed. At the start of the test, you will be asked to move your eyes, clench your teeth and move your legs. This will make sure that the sensors are working.


Many patients do not sleep as well as they would at home. Occasionally, you may be prescribed medication to help you sleep during the in-lab sleep study. This typically does not affect the results. Nearly everyone falls asleep during an in-lab study.


In the morning, you may be asked to fill out a morning questionnaire that asks about the quality of your sleep. The in-lab study is complete once you are awake and the sensors have been removed.


WHAT IS A PLAN AFTER A SLEEP STUDY?


A sleep technologist will first score your sleep study by marking your sleep stages and identifying any events of abnormal breathing or leg movement. The trained sleep physician will then review the results to determine what kind of sleep problem you may have


If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, next step is ‘Titration’ study. During CPAP titration, the goal is to find the right amount of air pressure through a mask you wear while you sleep, to prevent your upper airway from collapsing. This will eliminate the breathing pauses caused by sleep apnea, so you will no longer snore or make choking noises in your sleep. You will be able to sleep through the night without your body waking up from lack of oxygen.


WHAT IS A ‘SPLIT NIGHT’ SLEEP STUDY?


A ‘Split Night’ sleep study (initial diagnostic PSG followed by CPAP titration on the same night) can be performed for moderate & severe OSA (AHI > 20 documented in first 2 hours of diagnostic study) supported by clinical judgment.


CONTINUOUS POSITIVE AIRWAY PRESSURE


Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the frontline treatment for obstructive sleep apnea and recommended for all cases. CPAP is a lifestyle change. It works best when used every night, for the whole time you are sleeping. You should also use CPAP when you are napping.


SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT – HEALTH RISK PREVENTION


CPAP can prevent or reverse serious consequences of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The consistent treatment can give you many health benefits




  • reduce your risk of heart disease

  • reduce your risk of stroke

  • can improve insulin sensitivity

  • help you become a safer driver by reducing your daytime fatigue

  • can restore your normal sleep pattern

  • improve your ability to think, concentrate and make decisions

  • reduce or eliminate the sound of your snoring

  • can reduce medical expenses (treating complications of un-treated sleep apnea), even when you factor in the cost of CPAP



Oral appliance therapy & upper airway surgery may be a part of the treatment plan for few patients (with mild sleep apnea) who cannot tolerate wearing a CPAP mask.
