Sleep Apnea

La Grange Sleep Apnea

 

Do you live in La Grange, Texas and suffer from Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a disorder that goes unnoticed by most, since it occurs during sleep. When a person’s breathing is interrupted or stops during sleep, it is a form of sleep apnea. Most people do not find out that they suffer from this disorder until a family member or loved one notices and brings it to their attention. There are three types of sleep apnea: obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea and mixed sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by the airway being blocked, central sleep apnea is caused by the brain’s signal to breathe failing and mixed sleep apnea is a combination of both obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea.

How To Know If You Suffer From Sleep Apnea:

Sleep specialists can help you discover whether or not you suffer from sleep apnea. This is done so in several different steps, the first of which being a history and physical exam. The next step is for the sleep specialist to monitor you while you are sleeping. Through these tests the specialist can find out if you do in fact suffer from sleep apnea and how severe your case may be. There are multiple treatment options available for those who suffer from sleep apnea. The most popular and reliable option is the using a continuous airflow pressure machine, which is worn over the nose and mouth while you are sleeping. Other options are available for those who cannot tolerate this machine, such as mouth guards.
