Sleep Apnea Needs Treatment to Reduce the Effects and Dangers – We Can Help


Posted on 5/25/2019 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Sleep Apnea Needs Treatment to Reduce the Effects and Dangers – We Can HelpEstimates say that nearly 1 out of every 4 adults suffer from some type of sleep apnea. Many do not even realize it because it happens while they are asleep. They think the signs that they suffer from sleep apnea are due to other things.

That means they do not get any help for the sleep apnea. The good news is that there are ways that we can help people diagnose sleep apnea and then offer solutions to reduce the effects and reduce the possibility of something bad happening. Many of the solutions are easy to do.

Dangers of Sleep Apnea

There are some people who might think that sleep apnea is not a big problem. You stop breathing for a few seconds and then you start breathing again. The problem is so minor to some people because they do not even realize that it happens.

If you stop breathing for any length of time, you are putting your body at risk for serious issues. Depriving the brain of oxygen is never a good thing. Some of the more common problems associated with sleep apnea are also dangerous. People with sleep apnea have a difficult time getting the deep sleep and rest their body needs. They are constantly fatigued, and their body is weak. The longer sl3eep apnea goes without treatment, the harder it is for the body to recover.

Treating Sleep Apnea

Treating sleep apnea starts with diagnosing it. This is commonly done through a sleep test. The monitors track if a person has periods of time when they stop breathing while they sleep and determine how severe the problem is.

Treatment for sleep apnea can come in different forms. The most common type of treatment is an oral appliance that helps keep the airway open while you sleep. Some treatments include a machine that provides positive air pressure, but other appliances only require a person to wear them while they sleep without any machines.

Once you get treatment for sleep apnea, you begin to notice a big change. You wake up more refreshed and more alert throughout the day. The people who are around you also get more sleep because they don't worry about whether you are breathing or not and because the treatment for sleep apnea can also stop you from snoring. It is better for everyone to treat sleep apnea.
