Sleep Apnea/Snoring Treatment

Definition of Snoring/Sleep Apnea

Snoring is vibration of respiratory structures such as vulva, soft palate and the resulting sound, due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping. Sleep apnea treatment is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. You may have sleep apnea if you snore loudly, and you feel tired even after a full night’s sleep.

Sleep apnea treatment usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.

As a result, the quality of your sleep is poor, which makes you tired during the day. Sleep apnea is a leading cause of excessive daytime sleepiness.

 

Signs of sleep apnea

  • Loud snoring, heard even in other rooms
  • Repeated episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
  • Abrupt awakenings because of shortness of breath or obstruction
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Attention problems, easily irritated or depressed
  • Morning Headache, Nausea, Waking up frequently to urinate, hypoactive sexual desire

 

If sleep apnea is not treated, it causes complications

ComplicationsCardiovascular disease, Arrhythmia, Myocardial Infarction, Cardiac FailurePulmonary Disease, pulmonary hypertension, respiratory failure
HypertensionCerebral infarction
Neurologic Problems, Headache, GlaucomaPsychological problems, daytime sleepiness, memory deterioration, depression
Endocrine Disease, DiabetesSexual function problems

 

Snoring/Sleep Apnea treatment Examination

Polysomnography+ 3D CT+ Endoscopy

Polysomnography is the standard diagnostic method for all sleep disorders including snoring and sleep apnea. It monitors many body functions during sleep such as EEG, eye movements, respiratory airflow, respiratory efforts, ECG, oxygen saturation, and leg muscle activity. Examination is done on your sleeping time.

What is positive air pressure treatment?

It is one of the best ways to treat sleep apnea non-surgically.

Mask is connected to a machine that looks like a small humidifier. Air is emitted from this machine and opens the obstructed respiratory structures during sleep.
