Sleep Apnea Treatment Solutions
Treatments for sleep apnea depend on the severity of each individual case, and the type of apnea.
Treatments for sleep apnea depend on the severity of each individual case, and the type of apnea. Basic treatment can be behavioral — for instance, patients are instructed to lose weight, stop smoking, or sleep on their sides instead of on their backs. Beyond that, oral devices can be used to position the mouth in such a way that prevents throat blockage. In more severe cases, surgery may be the best option.
СРАР (Continuous Positive Aіrwау Pressure) machine is typically prescribed to treat Severe OSA. This dental sleep appliance consists of the apparatus that pumps the air into the mask through the air tubes. This sleep apnea treatment requires the patient to wear a CPAP mask while sleeping, over the nose, or the mouth, or both. It is secured on the face with straps. А CPAP pumps a controlled stream of air into the mask. The additional pressure holds open the relaxed muscles, mush as if air inflates a balloon. The patient’s physician, based on an overnight test, prescribes the amount of pressure.
There are variants of the CPAP sleep apnea treatments. VPAP means variable positive airway pressure. Also known as bi-level or BiPAP, provides higher pressure during inhalation and lower pressure during exhalation, and is often utilized for patients who have other respiratory problems. АРАР or automatic positive airway pressure is the newest form of breathing maching type sleep apnea treatments.

Sleep Apnea Surgery
In cases, where the cause is a physical deformity, surgery might be needed before any Sleep Appliance, or Machine is prescribed. Success rate from surgical procedures, though, is not high. Surgery is one of the more invasive sleep apnea treatments. Several procedures exist. Surgeons can remove and tighten tissue, and widen the airway. More intrusive treatments include surgical procedures like jaw correction and adding implants. А tracheotomy could be an option for those that suffer from severe Sleep Apnea that is life threatening. This procedure creates an opening surgically in the neck then a tube is inserted.
Prescription medicines are another possible treatment, though like surgery not highly successful. Stimulants can reduce the number of sleep apnea episodes, but produce side effects like palpitations and insomnia. When other sleep apnea treatments fail to treat the disorder, stimulants can be prescribed to help the patient’s daytime sleepiness. As a complete sleep apnea treatment, however, prescribed medicines are ineffective.
