Sleep Apnea Q & A

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a serious disorder in which your breathing stops and starts several times throughout the night. Obstructive and central sleep apnea are the two most common types of sleep apnea.

Breathing is disrupted in obstructive sleep apnea where your throat muscles contract and obstruct your airways. When you have central sleep apnea, your brain malfunctions and interferes with the transmissions to the muscles that control your respiration.

A mixture of obstructive and central sleep apnea factors may also cause the condition.

What are the symptoms of sleep apnea?

Since the symptoms of sleep apnea appear during sleep, you may be unaware that you are suffering from this illness. Your partner may tell you that you snore loudly or that you struggle to breathe occasionally while sleeping.

Other symptoms of sleep apnea include:

During your initial appointment, Dr. Harouni can ascertain if your symptoms are related to sleep apnea.

What are the risk factors for sleep apnea?

Several factors, such as genetic history, can increase your chances of suffering from sleep apnea. Some more factors have been listed below :

The use of alcohol and certain medications that relax the muscles of the throat can significantly raise your chance of developing sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea, if left unchecked, can cause heart issues, Type 2 diabetes, or even death.

What treatments are available for sleep apnea?

Dr. Harouni can suggest oral appliances to keep your airways open while you are asleep if you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. The device, based on your specific requirements, shifts your jaw into an improved position to allow air to move more freely in your sleep.

If an oral device fails to relieve your sleep apnea symptoms, Dr. Harouni may suggest a surgical procedure to realign your jaw. Surgery can readjust your jaw, creating more space behind your tongue and preventing airway obstruction.

Surgical correction of sleep apnea provides long-term outcomes and can eliminate the requirement of a CPAP machine. Dr. Harouni can decide if this surgery is the most beneficial procedure for you based on your particular needs and overall health.
