Detection and Prevention
Most lung diseases are treatable and preventable. Early detection is key to successful treatment and improved quality of life.
Take the Obstructive Sleep Apnea Screen Quiz
Many patients with pulmonary disease may also be at high risk for sleep apnea. Take this quiz to determine your risk level.
- Do you snore?
- Do you have daytime tiredness or fatigue?
- Have you been observed having interruption of breathing during sleep?
- Do you have, or are you being treated for, high blood pressure?
Answering yes to two or more of these questions may indicate that you are at risk for obstructive sleep apnea. If you are at risk, contact the Sleep Center at Miami Valley for further assessment.
