Our organizing pro Peter Walsh can get your home into tip-top shape, but there’s one thing he needs help with – he can’t sleep! Board-certified sleep specialist Dr. Michael Breus is here to help him figure out what’s keeping him from sleeping, and to share some advice that could solve your own sleeping issues.
After a sleep study, Peter is shocked when he is diagnosed with a Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome, causing him to almost stop or completely stop breathing frequently! He also learns that he suffers from Restless Leg Syndrome and periodic limb movements.
So what’s the solution? Dr. Breus offers him some treatment devices, and also shares tips and product recommendations that could help you, too.
Tip 1: You Can Get Diagnosed at Home
Peter’s sleep was analyzed in a sleep center, but if you’re not able to undergo that degree of testing, Dr. Breus shares that there is a portable sleep monitor you can use at home (under the supervision of a specialist, of course).
Tip 2: A CPAP Machine Can Help Those with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Disorder
Dr. Breus shows Peter a device called a CPAP machine that can keep your airway open if you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The machine doesn’t make much noise, assures Dr. Breus.
Tip 3: A Blanket to Calm Your Legs
If, like Peter, you suffer from Restless Leg Syndrome, there is a special blanket available that could help keep your legs still while you sleep.
Tip 4: A Gel Pillow Can Help Support Your Head
The doctor recommends a supportive gel pillow that molds to your head providing support and keeps you cool while you sleep.
Tip 5: Keep Your Room Cool
Dr. Breus recommends keeping the room between 65-75 degrees while you sleep.
