Do you find you wake up in the middle of the night, eyes wide open like that of Mr. PG, the famed woodsman mascot who sits at the entrance to the Northern Capital of BC? It’s possible you may be suffering from sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), restless sleep and snoring.
There is a solution that can now help Prince George and Northern Interior residents have a ‘Better Sleep. Better Life.’ All you have to do is walk through the doors of Snore MD’s new Prince George sleep apnea clinic and find out.
Get Ready for a Better Sleep, Better Life in Prince George
Northern BC residents can now experience the very first Snore MD sleep shop in Prince George. With 12 sleep clinics around BC, Snore MD has quickly become one of the fastest growing health care providers in the province. Since opening our flagship store in Langley in February 2017, we have expanded to include locations in the Lower Mainland, North Vancouver, the Okanagan, and Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast.
“The reason we decided to set up in Prince George is because there wasn't sleep care with the accessibility and expertise that we have set as a new standard in the province,” says Michael Davis, Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) and Director of Patient Care for Snore MD Sleep Apnea Clinics.
What is Sleep Apnea and How is it Treated?
Sleep apnea can be experienced with loud snoring, restless sleep and interrupted breathing through the night. These interruptions, or apneas, occur when the soft tissue in the airway or throat collapses during sleep, blocking air from reaching the lungs. If left untreated, OSA can have serious ramifications, including increased chances of developing high blood pressure, diabetes, heart complications and driving/workplace injuries.
One of the most common treatments for sleep apnea is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure or CPAP therapy, which uses CPAP equipment to deliver constant air pressure to maintain steady airflow and breathing.
What Makes Snore MD’s Prince George Sleep Clinic Different from the Rest?
Besides our accessible hours, which allow Prince Georgians to access sleep care after work hours and on weekends, our store-front location at College Heights Plaza near Save on Foods. There is lots of free parking at the front of our store, making it easily accessible.
Our clinical coordinator is always available to answer your questions and show you our products, which are placed at the front of the store instead of hidden in the backroom.
At Snore MD, your sleep health is our priority and that’s why we continue your therapy with our legendary Care for Life program, which provides ongoing support through follow-up contact, progress updates, and more. We also keep you abreast on all our latest products, provide free distilled water for CPAP machines users, and medical updates and sleep tips via our weekly online newsletter.
Breaking the Mystery around Health and Sleep Care in Prince George
While many medical professionals are aware of the affects of sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, some are not equipped and/or trained to treat them.
“When patients come to Snore MD, they experience an open and welcoming environment. We want to encourage patients to talk about their challenges and problems, so we can provide the best possible solutions,” says Snore MD Prince George sleep expert Dennis Nelson, a Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) who has 15 years of experience in treating sleep disorders.
To make sure all of our patients receive the highest level of care when they visit one of our clinics, all of our sleep specialists attend Snore MD University, a comprehensive online learning program that Snore MD built.
Sleep Solutions in Three Easy Steps
With your initial in-clinic consultation, we will ask you to answer some sleep and health-related questions with our complimentary sleep test. We will then send you home with a comfortable and easy-to-wear device that measures your sleep over two nights. After an assessment is made, we then set you on a course to find the best possible sleep apnea and snoring solutions. This could include CPAP therapy, or something we call sleep hygiene, which focuses on steps you can take to promote a better night’s sleep.
All you have to do is take those first steps.
Snore MD’s Prince George sleep clinic is now open to help Prince George and Northern BC residents find the best possible sleep apnea solutions. Find us at our College Heights Plaza location at #440-5240 Domano Blvd. Or call 778-764-1758 for more information. Walk-ins are always welcome.
