CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) Treatment

In the late 1970’s, a physician named Colin Sullivan discovered that some dogs with sleep apnea problems responded positively to a mask that covered their snouts and continuously pumped air into their lungs. He tried a similar mask on a human for the first time in 1980, and the CPAP machine was born. Because the air pressure from a CPAP is greater than the air pressure surrounding the patient, it helps to keep the airway passages from closing off while sleeping and thus prevents snoring and apnea.

If we decide that a CPAP would be beneficial for you, we will instruct you on how to use a CPAP machine to discourage night-time snoring and apnea. We will also show you how to adjust your CPAP mask so that it fits comfortably and securely. Many people experience an immediate sleep improvement as soon as they start CPAP treatment. CPAP is a very common and affordable treatment for many patients with sleep apnea.

Medication

In some situations, medication works well for treating certain types of sleep disorders. Some of the more common types of drugs for sleep disorders include Anti-Parkinsonian drugs, Benzodiazepines, Non-benzodiazepine hypnotics, Opiates, Anticonvulsants, and Anti-narcoleptics. Our specialists will carefully examine your needs to determine if one of these medications will help you achieve a quality level of nighttime sleep. Your out of pocket costs will vary depending on your insurance coverage and the type of medication that you are prescribed for your sleep disorder.
