The most effective and least invasive means of treating sleep apnea is with positive airway pressure. Positive airway pressure is the treatment of choice for all patients with moderate or severe sleep apnea and for most with mild but symptomatic obstructive sleep apnea. Ask Dr. Varquez about the detail related to CPAP Therapy and Equipment.
Goals of Sleep Disorder Treatment
The goals of treatment with CPAP are to improve health and overall well-being. The specific objectives are to improve the quality of sleep and to reduce the number of episodes to a safe level. Improved sleep quality usually alleviates the symptoms caused by sleep apnea. The most common symptoms of sleep apnea that usually improve are sleepiness and fatigue during the day, and lack of concentration.
The use of a CPAP machine can also minimize other problems such as snoring, insomnia, lack of concentration during the day, nighttime urinary urge, and frequent awakenings.
