Sleep Apnea, Therapy Devices, Services

OSA is a condition in which a person stops breathing repeatedly through the night. Breathing stops because the throat or "airway" collapses and prevents air from getting into the lungs. Sleep patterns are disrupted, resulting in excessive sleepiness or fatigue during the day.
Extra tissue in the back of the airway, such as large tonsils, decrease in the tone of the muscles that hold the airway open, the tongue falling back and closing off the airway.
Evaluation by a doctor specializing in sleep disorders is recommended along with having a sleep study done. A sleep study can provide the doctor with vital information about how you sleep and breathe, which will help the doctor to determine your diagnosis and treatment options.

There is possible increased risk for :

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease and heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Fatigue related motor vehicle and work accidents
  • Decreased quality of life

Most commonly, Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) therapy is the treatment of choice for OSA. It is noninvasive and can alleviate the symptoms of OSA when used as prescribed. Less commonly, surgery or oral appliances are also used, which may be effective in certain cases. Any treatment plan should include weight loss if needed, exercise, and avoidance of alcohol, sedatives, and hypnotics.

Most PAP users who remain committed to treatment enjoy :

  • Increased energy and attentiveness
  • Fewer morning headaches
  • Reduced irritability
  • Improved memory
  • Increased ability to exercise
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Decreased risk of strokes and heart attacks
  • Increased effectiveness at home and at work
  • Improved overall quality of life
  • Loud or disruptive snoring
  • Witnessed pauses in breathing
  • Choking or gasping for air during sleep
  • Restless sleep
  • Frequent visits to the bathroom
  • Early morning headaches
  • Excessive daytime fatigue
  • Poor concentration
  • Depression or irritability
  • Falling asleep during routine activities

Mask therapy tips

Because masks are disposable, periodic replacement is needed when the mask shows signs of wear and tear. Inspect your mask for stiffness, cracks, or tears. Also check with your homecare provider the available replacement options through your insurance policy.
