We are dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and care of all of our patients. Treatment will depend on the factors causing the disorder, so it is important to discuss treatment options with our sleep physicians or your referring physician to determine what treatment is best for you.
| PAP (Positive Airway Pressure)|
PAP therapy is widely accepted as the most effective form of treatment for OSA especially in moderate to severe cases. The device works to treat OSA by applying positive airway pressure down the airway, essentially acting as a splint to keep the airway open during sleep. This allows the patient to breathe better throughout the night, promotes increased blood oxygen levels, and helps to prevent respiratory disturbances that may interrupt one’s ability to maintain sleep. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the most common form of PAP therapy. Working closely with your doctor, we’ll determine your specific needs and provide the recommended PAP equipment and supplies straight to your door. While carrying most major manufacturers, we also offer complimentary, in-home set-ups of your sleep equipment, education of therapy, and ongoing follow-up care at an additional low cost.
| CBT-I for Insomnia |
CBT-I stands for Congnitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia and this program is specially designed to help adults of all ages who have significant difficulty with falling asleep, staying asleep, and/or early awakening that impacts daily function. The program helps patients identify and replace thoughts and habits that cause or worsen sleep problems with healthy habits that promote sound sleep.
Alpha-Stim uses Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) to increase sleep time, reduce sleep disturbances, and improve overall sleep quality. The waveform passes between two electrodes that you clip onto your earlobes, sending a signal to your brain that helps to significantly reduce insomnia.
| Inspire |
Inspire therapy is a medical implant that works inside your body with your natural breathing process to treat sleep apnea by continuously monitoring your breathing patterns while you sleep. Based on your unique breathing patterns, the system delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, which keeps the airway open. This is for patients who have a BMI less than 32 and suffer moderate to severe sleep apnea who could not use or get consistent benefit from PAP therapy.
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) is the most common surgery to treat sleep apnea in adults. Tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy is the first treatment option for children with enlarged tonsils and adenoids which could be a cause of sleep apnea.
| Oral Appliance |
Custom-made, FDA-approved oral appliances are a viable treatment option for patients with primary snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Oral appliances help to prevent the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat from collapsing during sleep by advancing the lower jaw forward, thus keeping the airway open and promoting adequate oxygenation in your blood. Oral appliances may be used alone OR in combination with other treatments for sleep-related breathing disorders, such as positive airway pressure (PAP), weight management, or surgery.
| Provent Therapy|
Provent therapy is an option for mostly mild sleep apnea and snoring. Provent therapy is a throwaway, nightly-use nasal device that fits over both nostrils and uses a proprietary MicroValve design that creates pressure when you exhale to help keep your airway open. The device attaches over your nostrils with a hypo-allergenic adhesive.
| Lifestyle Changes |
Maintaining a regular sleep routine and practicing proper sleep hygiene can assist in a night of better quality sleep. Changes in diet and exercise could lead to a healthier lifestyle which can decrease the risk of sleep apnea.
