SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT
Get A Good Night’s Sleep
Peak Medical Group’s sister company Peak Sleep Clinic offers professional testing and treatment for sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by a partial or complete obstruction of the airway. A person with sleep apnea stops breathing or has pauses in their breathing during sleep, which leads sufferers to briefly wake up to clear the airway and allow breathing to resume. Common signs including choking or snoring sounds.
If left untreated, it may increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, heart failure, irregular heartbeat, obesity, and motor vehicle collisions.
The most common treatment for sleep apnea is with a CPAP (or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) Machine, which splints the sufferer’s airway open during sleep by means of pressurized air.
Common Benefits Of CPAP Treatment Include
- Improved Daytime Alertness
- Reduced Snoring
- A Reduced Risk of Serious Chronic Health Conditions
- A Decreased Risk of Motor Vehicle Accidents
- An Improved Quality Of Life Overall
