Thanks for tuning in to the Armor Men’s Health Hour Podcast today, where we bring you the latest and greatest in urology care and the best urology humor out there.
In this segment Dr. Mistry and Donna Lee are joined by Dr. Max Kerr to discuss sleep apnea. Dr. Kerr is a practicing dentist at Sleep Better Austin, a company specializing in dental sleep treatment.
Dr. Mistry and Dr. Kerr discuss the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea and low testosterone. Obstructive sleep apnea (or OSA) occurs when breathing is disrupted during sleep. This occurs when the throat closes during sleep and causes carbon dioxide to increase in the blood, increases in heart rate, and poor quality sleep.
Dr. Kerr explains the home sleep study for OSA, which is a quick and easy way that patients can get tested in the comfort of their own beds, on their own time. He discusses some of the risk factors for sleep apnea and questions to ask yourself to see if testing is right for you.
