The Most Effective Method To Deal With Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a rather common and troublesome disorder that effects the sufferers sleep and thus will affect the quality of work of that person as well as deprive them of enough energy to get through the following day. Even though this sleeping disorder is more of an annoyance for you and your partner, it can create a much serious situation by increasing the risks of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, heart attacks, strokes and even lead to total heart failure. Thankfully there are treatments to take care of this, here is a description of the most popular and effective treatment methods utilised in the treatment of sleep apnea.

The most appropriate and effective treatment methods for different types of sleep apnea

There are three types of this sleeping disorder that affects people, with the most serious one being complex sleep apnea syndrome, while obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea are somewhat less severe types of the disorder than complex sleep apnea. The most common and effective treatment for this disorder so far has been applying positive pressure on the airways of the patient, which is a treatment method known as CPAP therapy.

This treatment works with a wide variety of masks that can be strapped onto the patients face, targeted mainly for the nostrils of the patient. A hose is attached to the CPAP mask which is directly connected to a machine that applies air pressure to the hose that directs it towards the nostrils of the patient, which then directs the air pressure to the upper airways, keeping it from collapsing while you sleep. To prevent drying up the nose and the throat of the user, the machine uses a humidifier to control the percentage of water present in the air pumped from the machine into the nostrils of the user. For milder cases, usage of oral appliances has become common.

The oral appliance is much like the mouth guard that is used in boxing although the purpose of the oral appliance is to shift the wearers jaw forward so as to keep the airway open as well as keeping the wearers tongue in place when they sleep.

When purchasing any equipment to help deal with sleep Apnea, be sure to check if it is FDA approved, since items that are bought over the counter will tend to give unpleasant side effects such as affecting your teeth as well as giving you a sore jaw at the end of the day. It’s vital to take care of even the smallest health issue, since something that was once trivial could turn into a quite serious medical condition. Sleep apnea is not only an annoyance to you but to your partner as well, since this sleep disorder causes its victim to snore loudly, so fixing such an issue will help the quality of your relationship.
