Loud or unpredictable snoring could be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea

Snoring has adverse effects, but we have ways to treat them.

Are you having trouble getting a good night’s rest? Do you constantly feel tired and irritable throughout the day, even after a full night’s sleep? You may be suffering from sleep apnea, a common sleep disorder that affects millions of people worldwide.

At Allergy & ENT Associates, our board-certified allergists and ENT specialists work in harmony to deliver a comprehensive approach to treating sleep apnea. Seamlessly collaborating, they target the root causes of sleep apnea and are dedicated to helping you achieve a good night’s sleep so that you can wake up feeling refreshed and energized.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea, characterized by a blocked airway during sleep, causes frequent interruptions in breathing, leading to disruptive snoring, gasping, or choking noises. It’s crucial to understand that not all snorers experience sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea specifically disrupts the breathing process during sleep. This interruption impacts our sleep cycle, preventing the completion of crucial processing tasks, especially in the vital REM sleep phase.

The consequences extend beyond nighttime disturbances, manifesting as insomnia, daytime napping and subsequent fatigue, irritability and even depression.

Treatment

At Allergy & ENT Associates, we adopt a comprehensive approach to diagnose and treat sleep apnea. Our dedicated specialists for sleep apnea conduct a thorough evaluation, considering your medical history, sleep habits and relevant physical or environmental factors.

To assess the severity, we may recommend a polysomnography test, monitoring your sleep patterns in a controlled environment. For mild to moderate sleep apnea, lifestyle adjustments like weight loss and avoiding alcohol before bed can be effective. In more severe cases, our Sleep Specialists may recommend a CPAP machine to keep your airway open during sleep.

Explore tailored solutions through our procedures, including:

Balloon Sinuplasty

New technology that improves sinus drainage while also preserving surrounding anatomy.

Inspire

An implanted sleep-therapy device that provides better breathing by stimulating muscle tissue as you sleep.

CPAP

Some patients also benefit from a CPAP, which delivers constant airflow throughout the night.

Don’t let sleep apnea control your life. Contact Allergy & ENT Associates today to schedule an appointment. We are committed to helping you achieve better sleep and a healthier, happier life.
