Comments Off on Did you know CPAP can prevent sleep apnea and snoring?
Studies show that approximately 45% of all adults snore occasionally, and 25% snore almost all the time. This occurs when there is an obstruction in the airflow through the passages located at the back of the nose and mouth that creates the snoring sounds.
It’s only in recent years that medical professionals have discovered the adverse effects of snoring and its association with sleep apnea.
One of the most popular sleep apnea used today is CPAP, which stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure.
It works by delivering air into your airway using a special nasal mask. The mask creates enough pressure with the flow of air when you inhale that your airway is kept open. Doctors say that CPAP is the most effective non-surgical treatment that is available to eliminate sleep apnea and snoring.
It is your otolaryngologist that will decide if the CPAP sleep apnea device is the right treatment for you. If it is, then you will need to wear the nasal mask to bed each night. During treatment, don’t be surprised if your otolaryngologist asks you to undertake some lifestyle changes, such as exercising, losing weight, and quitting smoking if you are a smoker.
When the CPAP sleep apnea device is used correctly, it has almost a 100% success rate in sleep apnea and snoring elimination.
CPAP is not a cure, but rather a treatment. When used correctly for long-term, CPAP, sleep apnea device, is able to eliminate surgery for all but the most severe cases.
