Sleep Apnea

Experience Restful Nights and Regain Vitality

Do you recognize these scenes in your household? The deafening snores that disrupt a good night’s sleep? Or perhaps there’s a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine, once prescribed but now collecting dust in a closet?

Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder that often plagues households, impacting not only the affected individuals but also their loved ones.

While the medical community predominantly recommends CPAP machines for sleep apnea, their high rejection rate can leave patients seeking an alternative.

Recognizing Sleep Apnea Symptoms

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can manifest through various symptoms, which may include:

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Unrefreshing sleep
  • Memory and concentration problems
  • Morning or nighttime headaches
  • Heartburn or sour mouth taste at night
  • Swelling in the legs
  • Frequent nocturnal urination
  • Sweating and chest pain while sleeping
  • Episodes of not breathing (apnea), ranging from mild (few as 5 times an hour) to severe (over 50 times an hour)
  • Loud snoring (though not all snorers have sleep apnea)
  • Restless tossing and turning during sleep
  • Nighttime choking or gasping

Please note that children may also suffer from sleep apnea, with symptoms including snoring, mouth breathing, bedwetting, poor school performance, and stunted growth. Identifying and addressing sleep apnea in children is crucial for their healthy development.

The Traditional Treatment: CPAP Machines

The conventional treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is the CPAP machine. It involves wearing a mask that delivers a continuous stream of air to prevent the collapse of soft tissues in the throat and maintain unobstructed breathing.

However, unfortunately, many individuals find it challenging to tolerate the CPAP machine, resulting in its underutilization.
