Do you snore?
Everyone with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) snores, but not everyone who snores has OSA. Snoring is noisy breathing during sleep. Before the airway closes it narrows and air rushes through, causing noisy vibrations known as snoring. These noisy vibrations can cause sleep fragmentation. Persons most at risk are males and those who are overweight, but snoring is a problem of both genders. Snoring usually becomes more serious as people age. It can cause disruptions to your own sleep and your bed-partner’s sleep. It can lead to un-restful sleep which causes daytime sleepiness.
OSA is the most common sleep disorder. Sufferers experience ‘apnea events’ where muscles controlling airways become too relaxed and cause interruptions in breathing during sleep. Some of the symptoms of OSA are constant fatigue, snoring, nasal congestion, and throat swelling. While there is no cure for OSA, the gold standard treatment for OSA is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP).
CPAP delivers pressurized room air that keeps airways open to maintain a regular breathing rhythm during sleep. In effect, this helps prevent apnea events and allow for a more restful sleep.
We provide quality care and the best possible equipment for those who have been prescribed CPAP by a sleep clinic to treat OSA. Our on-staff Registered Respiratory Therapists strive to provide a positive CPAP experience and improve the lives of patients and their families. We want you to have good night’s sleep.
