What is CPAP? What are Other Treatments for Sleep Apnoea?
Sleep apnoea is a sleeping problem that can lead to numerous health problems such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. This is why it needs to be treated as soon as possible. There are a few treatments for obstructive sleep apnoea. The most popular and most studied treatment options include CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), oral appliances, weight loss, and oral surgery. CPAP is applied through a mask that is placed over the nose and/or mouth, and delivers air pressure in order to keep the airway open. It is attached to a CPAP machine which acts somewhat like an air compressor. CPAP is said to be effective at treating the majority of cases of sleep apnoea for patients that regularly use it.
