Sleep-Disordered Breathing and Obstructive Sleep Apnea

One of the most common sleep disorders we treat is Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB), a term that encompasses conditions where breathing periodically stops or becomes shallow during sleep. Among the types of SDB, Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is particularly prevalent.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is characterized by repetitive episodes of shallow or paused breathing during sleep, despite the effort to breathe. The interruptions are usually caused by the collapse of soft tissue at the back of the throat, blocking the airway. These episodes can last from a few seconds to minutes and may occur hundreds of times in one night, leading to poor sleep quality and various health risks such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and even cognitive impairments.

Treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Our comprehensive approach includes:

  • Initial Diagnosis: Conducting a thorough sleep study, either at home or in our specialized lab.
  • CPAP Therapy: Continuous Positive Airway Pressure devices to keep the airway open during sleep.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Guidance on weight loss, exercise, and avoiding alcohol and sedatives that could worsen the condition.
  • Surgical Options: For severe cases, surgical procedures like Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) or Genioglossus Advancement (GA) may be considered.
