Managing Your Sleep Apnea

Posted on August 14, 2018

Sleep apnea is responsible for negatively impacting the quality of sleep and the health of millions of Americans. Those who suffer from sleep apnea find themselves suffering from a host of health problems that stem from decreased nightly oxygen intake. Symptoms may be as benign as snoring, or far more serious. Sleep apnea may even increase the risk of suffering a nocturnal stroke or heart attack. If you’re one of the countless people suffering from sleep apnea and longing for relief, you may be wondering “Is there a cure for sleep apnea?”

Unfortunately, even with advanced and invasive surgery, sleep apnea is a condition that doesn’t have a permanent cure. Those who are diagnosed with sleep apnea come to realize that it is a lifelong condition that requires long-term care to effectively manage. However, despite the lack of a permanent cure, there are still many non-surgical means of treating your sleep apnea so that you can enjoy a full night’s sleep again.

At Hudson Valley Sleep Solutions, we strive to provide our patients with viable, non-surgical solutions to their obstructive sleep apnea!

An accurate diagnosis is the first step in devising a customized treatment plan for you and your sleep apnea. Did you know that there are different types of sleep apnea, with different causes and treatments? Inaccurate diagnoses can lead to improper treatment and an increase in your symptoms. Our qualified team is prepared to administer all the proper tests to properly diagnose your specific form of sleep apnea. In just a few visits to our state-of-the-art facility, you’ll have all the information you need to make an informed decision in terms of how to best treat your sleep apnea.

If you’re concerned about being shackled to a clunky, noisy CPAP machine, rest assured that we can offer you a variety of treatment options to suit your specific needs. Once we know the cause of your condition, we will explore the options available for you. If you are suffering from only mild to moderate sleep apnea, we can custom design an oral device that will help you manage your sleep apnea comfortably and successfully. Whether it’s a snore guard to help stop your snore, or one of the many Respire line of oral devices to help reposition your jaw and combat your sleep apnea, we can provide the right choice for you.

Oral devices are small and simple to use. They are easy to travel with, quiet, and for many people more comfortable than a CPAP machine. Our team is dedicated to finding the solution that will work with your lifestyle!

We highly recommend that all sleep apnea patients continue to undergo yearly monitoring to protect their long-term health.
