Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder in which breathing stops and starts repeatedly. As a result of excessive relaxation of the back of the throat, loud snoring and episodes of breathing cessation are common symptoms. For milder cases, lifestyle changes are helpful; for severe cases, medication and therapies are necessary.
Sleep apnea can occur during sleep, disrupting the duration and quality of rest. This is caused by inadequate breathing, resulting in low oxygen levels in the bloodstream. Some individuals wake up entirely due to this, yet others may only come out of a deep level of sleep into a lighter one. To estimate the severity of apnea, it should be measured over two hours, covering all stages of sleep; the resulting index (number of apneas per hour) determines its intensity – higher numbers signify more severe apnea.
Common Symptoms Of Sleep Apnea
Diagnosis And Treatment
MDIC offers home sleep tests that can detect sleep apnea via simplified procedures. The PT will monitor the number of times you have slowed or stopped breathing and see any central sleep apnea events in about an hour. They will also assess whether your oxygen levels have dropped during these episodes. Usually measuring heart rate, oxygen levels, airflow, and breathing patterns, the test results will let Dr. Collins decide if there is a need for further testing before commencing a therapy plan.
You’ll stay overnight at a sleep center in a bed that may look like a hotel room. Sensors will be attached to various body parts to record your brain waves, heartbeat, breathing, and movements.
In addition, you may need to keep a sleep diary for two weeks. It includes information about what time you go to bed each night, when you wake up, and how often you wake up. This will help the doctor see your sleep patterns, which could contain clues about diagnosing and correcting your sleep problem.

While sleeping, oral appliances keep the airway open and promote adequate air intake by preventing the tongue and soft tissues from collapsing in the back of the throat. Sleep-related breathing disorders may be treated with oral appliances alone or in combination with other treatments.

CPAP –The Most Common Treatment
A CPAP machine comprises a small box with a motorized fan inside, drawing air from the room and pressuring it to a setting suited to your needs. A flexible, lightweight hose is attached to the box, usually heated to prevent condensation build-up. The 6-foot-long hose ensures ample mobility during sleep and should be replaced as needed. The CPAP mask also comes in various shapes and sizes to fit any face but must be swapped out regularly for optimal performance.
