Is there anything worse than waking up first thing in the morning, ready and roarin’ to start the day only to feel just as tired as when you went to bed…if not worse? If this sounds like you, then this might be a sign of sleep apnea.
Unfortunately, sleep apnea is a common disorder in many Americans, and it can take a serious toll on your health. But a new medical device may have answers…
What is OSA? If you are a patient with severe sleep apnea, and you find yourself falling asleep at work or your family members are victims to your constant irritability, you aren’t alone. You likely suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which is a severe form of sleep apnea with even more health risks.
The Sleep Machine… But there may be answers. Typically those who suffer from sleep apnea use a CPAP machine, which helps to keep an individual’s lungs and airways open during sleep, allowing for air to smoothly pass through the lungs.
However, a new treatment, which involves surgically implanting a medical device, similar to a pacemaker, might be an option for sleep apnea sufferers who choose not to use or dislike using a CPAP device.
This treatment option is relatively easy outpatient surgical procedure. Patients can even control the device with a remote, making sleep come a whole lot easier.
While this treatment is relatively new, patients who have chosen this pathway to treat sleep apnea have been happy with the results.
