EL PASO, TX—Del Sol Medical Center announced today that its Sleep Disorders Center is the only sleep center in East El Paso to acquire Home Sleep Apnea Testing accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). The AASM is the leading professional membership society for physicians, scientists and other healthcare providers in sleep medicine. Accreditation from AASM ensures the highest quality of medical care for people with a problem related to sleep.
Del Sol Medical Center’s Home Sleep Apnea Test allows the patient to sleep at home wearing special equipment that collects information about breathing patterns during sleep. This type of test is used to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea, a common and serious sleep disorder that causes the patient interruptions in breathing during sleep.
“This accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine reflects this hospital’s continued commitment to providing the highest quality of patient care,” Jacob Cintron, chief executive officer of Del Sol Medical Center, said. “We are pleased to be the only sleep center in East El Paso to offer AASM-accredited sleep apnea tests that can be completed in the comfort of patients’ homes.”
