How Sleep apnea affects you

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition in which your breathing repeatedly stops and starts throughout the course of the night while you’re asleep. If you wake up tired each night, or if your partner complains about snoring and loud noises while you’re in bed, you may be suffering from sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form of sleep apnea. This involves the uvula and the throat muscles – when the throat muscles relax, the uvula can obstruct the airway. You aren’t able to get enough oxygen and your brain wakes you up, but the period of awakening is usually brief and not alerting. You may experience dozens of these apneic events throughout the night until you fully wake up.

What are treatments for sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea treatments range from conservative treatments (weight loss, positional therapy) to surgical treatments (UPPP, nasal surgery) to oral appliances (mouthguards CPAP machine). As a sleep apnea expert, Dr. Solomon focuses on treating sleep apnea with an EMA, or elastic mandibular advancement oral appliance.

Our practice specializes in fitting patients with a custom fabricated oral appliance to treat sleep apnea. The appliance helps hold your mandible (lower jaw) in a precise, open, and forward position; the uvula and soft tissue at the back of the throat will no longer collapse. Our oral appliance will fit like a sports mouth guard. It’s a minimally invasive, comfortable, simple solution for managing sleep apnea.

Oral appliance therapy is approved by The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) as a first line of treatment for mild to moderate sleep apnea. Even individuals with severe sleep apnea can benefit from using an oral appliance.

Diagnosing Sleep Apnea

diagnose sleep apnea

To diagnose sleep apnea, there must be more than recognition of symptoms. At CCIND, we use highly advanced technology to test our patients.

Our practice uses the FDA-approved Eccovision Acoustic Pharyngometer / Rhinometer system from Sleep Group Solutions to test our patients’ nasal and oral airways. Sound waves are sent into the airway and reflected back, which allows the machine to interpret the size of the airway. The Rhinometer measures the nasal airway and the Pharyngometer measures the oral airway. The system is a highly effective way to identify any collapse in the airway, and thus, recognize sleep apnea.

We also incorporate the ARES System (Apnea Risk Evaluation System) to diagnose sleep apnea. This is a device that fits like a baseball cap around the patient’s head. It can be worn at home while the patient sleeps and records detailed information about sleep quality, apneic events, and breathing troubles. The information is then interpreted and used to help diagnose sleep apnea.
