What is the treatment for Sleep Apnea?

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is the Gold Standard Treatment for people suffering from Moderate and Severe Sleep Apnea. It is non-invasive and it can alleviate the symptoms of Sleep Apnea if used as prescribed. In the CPAP therapy, a gentle flow of air is provided directly through your nose and mouth using a mask to prevent the upper airway collapse. This allows you to breathe more easily while you sleep. Less commonly, surgery or oral appliances are also used to treat Sleep Apnea but these may only be effective in case you are suffering from Mild Sleep Apnea.
