ARE YOU AT RISK ?
A Holter monitor test is a non-invasive exam that continuously records all of a person’s heartbeats over a period of 24 to 48 hours.
The heartbeats are recorded on a memory card that is then analyzed by a cardiologist. At the appointment, a technologist will install the device and give instructions for the next 24 or 48 hours. Patients then carry on with their normal routine while wearing the device, which they must bring back at the time indicated by the technologist. The device must not get wet (in the pool, bath or shower), and patients must continue with their normal daily activities (note that sports must be avoided).

How can I treat my sleep apnea ?
The Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) remains the treatment of choice for OSA. The air pressure generated by the device through a tube and mask keeps the upper airway open during your deep sleep. This airway pressure can effectively control your snoring, hypopnea and apnea and promotes a restful sleep. In order to have the right level of treatment pressure for programming your device, we will need a CPAP titration test recommended by most doctors. This is test is performed over 3 nights, always at home, with the device that will allow us to optimize your treatment. The Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the sleep apnea solution.
