There are many Obstructive sleep apnea treatment options available at SPS Hospitals to cure sleep apnea.
- Weight Management- Those who are overweight can benefit from losing weight. Around 10 percent weight loss can make a lot of difference in apneic patients.
- Avoiding Alcohol and Smoking- Anything that can relax the central nervous system including sedatives, sleeping pills, alcohol and smoking must be avoided.
- Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy and mandibular advancement devices are suggested as they happen to be very effective.
- Surgery is the least used method to treat sleep apnea. Those with excessive obstructing airflow may be suggested the surgical way but that is done only once the conservative measures fail to treat the condition.
