With the opening of PV Sleep Well, the Banderas Bay area now has access to certified sleep tests in addition to sleep-related equipment sales and service.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - We all from time-to-time have trouble sleeping. For some of us, our trouble sleeping has turned into a health-threatening problem. For many people, our sleeping becomes interrupted by snoring, or worse, we stop breathing all together making it difficult to get the rest that is required to function normally day-to-day.

Now, Banderas Bay has its very own in-home Sleep Study Service dedicated to testing for sleep apnea, providing solutions for a better nightís sleep, educating the public and local medical community of the condition, and supplying equipment and repair for people who have sleep apnea, all with the final goal of creating a happier, balanced and well person!

PVSleepWell is owned by Kevin and Rhnee Mohan, originally from San Antonio, TX. The need for a Vallarta Sleep Clinic became evident when Kevin, a CPAP user for over 7 years, was on vacation in Vallarta when a lightning storm fried his machine.

A CPAP machine (A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine) is used by people with sleep apnea to provide a steady air flow into their lungs, allowing for a deep and restful sleep. He searched desperately for help in every hospital and repair shop in town to no avail. Nobody knew what a CPAP machine was, let alone how to repair one, so he spent the rest of his vacation tossing and turning, not getting a good nightís sleep that some of us take for granted.

It is estimated that 20 million Americans are affected by sleep apnea. That represents more than 6.5% of the population or nearly 1 in 15 Americans, making sleep apnea as prevalent as asthma or diabetes. Kevin is taking his 20+ years of experience in the medical administration field in the US and is merging European and Asian study methods with United States procedures to establish a program that is non-intrusive and can be done in the privacy of a personís home.

A good nightís sleep is more serious than many realize, and snoring is much more than a bothersome sound. Snoring can be a hint of a much deeper problem. Sleep apnea has been linked to major health issues including diabetes, glaucoma, erectile dysfunction, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and other health problems.

PVSleepWell offers home studies including screenings to 3-day sleep analysis, which delivers results of a personís sleep disorder and possible treatments, at a much lower cost than in the US and Canada. You can rest assured knowing youíre getting the best of care. Their associates are accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), and they have multiple medical specialists available in the US who are board-certified in sleep medicine.

In addition to a personalized sleep study, PVSleepWell also offers sales, service and repair of CPAP equipment, masks and accessories. Most costs are covered by insurance, and cash discounts are available.

So why keep tossing and turning each night, walking through your days half-asleep? Contact PVSleepWell today and take the first step to a better nightís sleep, to a better life! PVSleepWell can be reached by calling 322-117-2255 or by emailing them at info(at)
