Do I Have Sleep Apnea?
There are two types of sleep apnea: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Central Sleep Apnea (CSA). Signs and symptoms of sleep apnea include:
There are several risk factors for sleep apnea, including having a large neck size, being male, and being overweight. If you have a history of difficulty breathing while sleeping or a family history of sleep apnea diagnoses, you may also be at risk. Sinus issues, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and any other type of nasal obstruction can increase your risk of sleep apnea.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Identifying sleep apnea causes is just one step towards successful treatment. Your treatment plan depends on the severity and type of sleep apnea. We may recommend making some lifestyle changes to improve breathing, such as losing weight, sleeping on one side, and stopping smoking. Some patients may need to be fitted with an oral device that improves breathing. Surgery may be a viable option for patients with severe sleep apnea. We will review different options in more detail and prepare a custom treatment plan during your consultation.
