If you are between ages 21 and 29, you should get a Pap test every 3 years.

If you are between ages 30 and 64, you should get a Pap test and human papillomavirus (HPV) test together every 5 years or a Pap test alone every 3 years.

If you are 65 or older, ask your doctor if you can stop having Pap tests.

Pregnancy Tests

pregnancy t2Most doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a urine pregnancy test.

This is usually about two weeks after conception.

However, some tests are more sensitive than others and can be taken earlier.

Early pregnancy tests can now be taken several days before your period is due – but the earlier you take the test, the less reliable the result.

The number of days varies according to the make of pregnancy test.

The earliest tests claim to be reliable from up to 5 days before your period is due.

Spiromety

spirometry t2Spirometry is a common office test used to assess how well your lungs work by measuring how much air you inhale, how much you exhale and how quickly you exhale.

Spirometry is used to diagnose asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other conditions that affect breathing.

The test works by measuring airflow into and out of your lungs.

To take a spirometry test, you sit and breathe into a small machine called a spirometer.

This medical device records the amount of air you breathe in and out and the speed of your breath.

Spirometry is a painless test that can often be done in your doctor's office or in a nearby clinic.

The entire test usually takes less than 10 minutes, although sometimes it is repeated after taking a puffer medication. You will be asked to breathe through a mouthpiece while wearing a nose clip.

Vaccines are like a training course for the immune system.

When foreign invaders such as bacteria or viruses enter the body, immune cells called lymphocytes respond by producing antibodies, which are protein molecules.

Sleep Study

Dr. David Jankelson

Dr David Jankelson Sleep Study t

Sleep studies are tests that record the body activity during sleep. They are helpful in identification of sleep disorders. Polysomnography, a type of sleep study, is the gold standard to rule out obstructive sleep apnea. If a home study does not find obstructive sleep apnea, but the patient still complains of unrefreshing sleep and daytime sleepiness, an in-lab polysomnogram may be necessary to find other possible disorders.

Sleep studies can help diagnose or rule out:

  • - Sleep-related breathing disorders, such as sleep apnea
    - Sleep-related seizure disorders
    - Sleep-related movement disorders, such as periodic limb movement disorder, which is repeated muscle twitching of the feet, legs, or arms during sleep. Sleep studies may be used to diagnose or rule out restless legs syndrome (RLS). However, RLS usually is diagnosed based on signs and symptoms, medical history, and a physical exam.
    - Problems sleeping at night (insomnia) : caused by stress, depression, hunger, physical discomfort, or other problem
    - Sleep disorders that cause extreme daytime tiredness, such as narcolepsy or circadian rhythm sleep disorders.
    - Problems with nighttime behaviours, such as sleepwalking, night terrors, or bed-wetting Bruxism or grinding of the teeth during sleep
    - Problems sleeping during the day because of working at night or rotating shift work. This sleep problem is called shift work sleep disorder.
    - Sleep studies can also determine problems with stages of sleep. The two primary categories of sleep are non-rapid eye movement (NREM) and rapid eye movement sleep (REM). Normally, four to five series of NREM and REM make up a night's sleep. A change in this cycle may make it hard to sleep soundly.
