Dear Valued Patients,
Our highest priority is always patient safety. San Diego Sleep Therapy will continue care for patients with limited and special business hours and we will continue to notify you as the situation develops.
Due to COVID-19, we are offering Telemedicine so that we may be able to treat patients remotely and safely. Please call our office at 858-617-0660 to schedule a Telemedicine visit.
Our facility is professionally cleaned on a daily and nightly basis to medical facility standards and our staff routinely sanitizes customer touch-points in the office throughout the day.
Dr. Rose Rohatgi and staff always adhere the highest of clinical hygiene standards when treating patients.
The American Society of Anesthesiologists issued guidance on Feb. 23 discouraging CPAP use in COVID-19 patients — advice largely informed by experience with the SARS epidemic in 2003. Studies dating to 2003 suggest that such devices can pump viruses into the air, potentially increasing the spread of a contagious disease. Also noted by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine: “If a patient is suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, we suggest assessing risks and benefits of continuing to use a PAP (CPAP/BPAP) device at home. Persons at risk for infection from using PAP include co-habitants of the same dwelling. Using an oral appliance ..may also be effective for some patients.”
Sleep better, live better and stay healthy and safe,
Dr. Rohatgi and Team at San Diego Sleep Therapy
