Sleep apnea therapy refers to any of the treatments doctors use for sleep apnea, such as medications, oral devices or surgical procedures.

When a doctor suspects sleep apnea, the first step they will take is ordering a sleep study. This test uses special equipment to record your breathing while you sleep so they can accurately diagnose the condition and suggest treatment options.

Sleep apnea symptoms vary from person to person and may include snoring, fatigue or difficulty concentrating. Your doctor can also detect that you stop breathing during the night or wake up repeatedly during the night.

If your snoring is loud enough, your doctor might suggest using a continuous positive airway pressure machine, or CPAP machine, which blows air into your nose and throat. Try to keep using the machine every night until you feel like your symptoms have improved.

Some people find CPAP machines uncomfortable. Their doctors may suggest using an oxygen device in addition to CPAP therapy.

A CPAP machine is widely regarded as the most effective and dependable way to treat obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, yet many individuals diagnosed with sleep apnea fail to use their CPAP machine as prescribed.

Positional therapy is another approach to treating obstructive sleep apnea. This involves altering your sleeping position, which may help reduce the frequency of apnea events.

Oral appliances, such as a mouth guard or orthodontic retainer, can keep your tongue from moving backward and blocking airways while you sleep.

In certain cases, a hypoglossal nerve stimulator (a medically implanted device) can be used to stimulate the nerve that controls your tongue movement. This helps improve muscle tone and increases the likelihood that your airways will remain open while sleeping.

If you have the symptoms of sleep apnea, consult your doctor or talk to The Air Station in Singapore immediately for sleep study test and sleep apnea treatment.
