Treatments

Treatment or management of your sleep disorder may include:


Medications: For some patients, medications may help stimulate breathing.

Weight loss: Weight loss can be helpful for some patients.

Positional therapy: Avoiding certain sleeping positions such as sleeping on one's back can be helpful for some patients.

Surgical treatments: Surgery on the nose and/or throat can alleviate sleep apnea in some patients. Such surgeries are: LAUP, UUUP, Somnoplasty, Septoplasty, Mandibular advancement, and removing the tonsils.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP): This is a non-surgical mode of treatment that is effective in most patients. A nasal mask is worn during sleep. Positive pressure is delivered through this mast to prevent collapsing/obstructing of the airway during sleep.

Ask your physician about the Penrose-St. Francis Sleep Disorders Center. Our specialized team is dedicated to helping you enjoy the quality of life that only happens by day when you sleep well at night.
