Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you suffer from sleep apnea, it is likely that you were alerted to the fact by someone else. However, if you wake up frequently without explanation or seek help for snoring, you may learn about the condition from a dentist or a sleep specialist. The symptoms of sleep apnea include shallowness of breath, choking or disrupted breathing during sleep. Not all snorers suffer from sleep apnea, but it is important to explore the possibility in order to receive suitable treatment.
CPAP therapy is one of the most common treatments for sleep apnea. A machine with a breathing mask helps the patient to breathe more effectively during sleep. Treatment using CPAP is a nightly requirement. Alternatively, patients may need to make changes to their lifestyle, including losing weight or reducing/eliminating habits like consuming alcohol or smoking.
