About Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea refers to a kind of sleep disorder in which people experience frequent interruptions in their regular breathing patterns while they are asleep. Each interruption in breathing can last between a few seconds to a few minutes, and they can happen several times each hour. davidturbyfilloralsurgeon.com
The Causes of Sleep Apnea
There are three kinds of sleep apnea, which are classified by their cause:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) – The most common form of sleep apnea, OSA occurs when there are physical blockages of the breathing passageways
Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) – The rarest form of sleep apnea, CSA occurs when the feedback mechanisms of the brain function improperly, affecting a person’s breathing patterns.
Complex/Mixed Sleep Apnea – This type of sleep apnea is a mix of OSA and CSA.
Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea
The ideal treatment option for sleep apnea will depend on the cause or causes of your sleep apnea. Minimally invasive therapies can be used to help address a number of issues. Some of these treatments include CPAP machines, special mouthpieces that open up air flow during sleep, and outpatient surgery for the soft palate. More invasive surgeries and therapies will be considered for serious cases of sleep apnea that do not respond to less invasive therapies.
During the consultation process, we will determine what kind of sleep apnea you suffer from and how best to address your particular issues with the sleep disorder.
