Sleep Apnea

Snoring man in bed need sleep apnea treatment from Jon C. Packman DDS
Sleep apnea is a condition that affects how you breathe when sleeping. During sleep, normal breathing can be interrupted for 10 seconds or more hundreds of times during a single night. Untreated sleep apnea prevents you from getting enough deep, restorative sleep. Without enough deep sleep you may be sleepy, lack mental sharpness and be less productive. Long-term health effects can be serious, including weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.

Signs of Sleep Apnea

•  Loud, chronic snoring
•  Insomnia
•  Breathing pauses for long periods
•  Waking up often at night
•  Forgetfulness, irritability, depression

Home Treatments for Light Sleep Apnea

•  Avoid sleeping on your back, because your tongue is more likely to block your airway
•  Elevate your head using extra pillows or a body wedge
•  Open your nasal passage via breathing strips, saline nasal flush, or a nasal dilator
•  Lose weight
•  Exercise

Treatments for Moderate to Severe Sleep Apnea

•  Talk to a doctor trained in sleep apnea
•  Use supplemental oxygen while sleeping
•  Use a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airflow Pressure) machine
•  Oral appliances made by Dr. Packman's office to help keep your airway open
