The Different Kinds of Sleep Apnea Remedies : 

The Different Kinds of Sleep Apnea Remedies Do you snore loudly when you sleep? Do you have difficulty breathing during sleep that make you gasp for air? Do you experience daytime sleepiness and memory problems? These are just some of the symptoms of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a kind of sleeping disorder which is characterized by difficulty breathing or pauses during sleep could be because the air is unable to flow from the mouth to the lungs. It could also be because of the large tonsils or adenoids that disrupt the flow of the air to the lungs, thus causing pauses in breathing. This cause is very common among obese people. For some other people, sleep apnea is because of the hereditary or genetic make up of the body. Whatever the cause of sleep apnea may be, it is fortunately treatable. It is just a common sleep disorder but people shouldn’t take it for granted as it can be very serious. Sleep Apnea Remedies range from self-help remedies to surgical remedies. When diagnosed with sleep apnea, one has to elevate the head of the bed to facilitate the flow of air from the mouth to the lungs and also to prevent obstruction in breathing. Making it a point to sleep regularly at the same time everyday would help the lungs function well. Apart from these, one of the sleep apnea remedies also includes continuous positive air pressure machine or C-PAP treatment. This is done by wearing a mask over the patient’s nose and strapped around his head. The mask is connected to the machine that blows air continuously through the mouth or the nose so that the air won’t be restricted. Another sleep apnea remedy is the oral appliance. This is a custom-fit device that is worn over the teeth which pushes the jawbone forward. This remedy moves the jaw forward opening the airway so that breathing or sleep apnea may be helped. These sleep apnea remedies might be of great help but for severe sleep apnea, another option is surgery. This would free the patient from using the machine every night which usually causes discomfort during sleep. However, doctors are quite hesitant to perform operations since they are mostly ineffective. Aside from that, the patient has also a big chance of bleeding out during the operation.

All kinds of sleep apnea remedies might be costly as they either involve buying of the machine or going under the knife. However, ignoring this disorder would not only cause trouble to the person himself but also to the people around him or his family.Before deciding on whatever treatment to use, it is still best to consult the doctor to determine the best treatment for you. :
