    Cosmetic dentist Dr. Sid Solomon shares an alternative to the common CPAP machine that is prescribed to millions of Americans to treat their sleep apnea. He shares that many people stop wearing their CPAP mask at night just after three weeks of wearing it. Dr. Solomon shares that they now know how your jaw needs to stay open forward to help treat sleep apnea using an elastic mandibular advancement (EMA) device that you can wear at night. Should you give this a try?

  • Sleep Apnea, Dim Light May Lead to Depression


    Study finds link between the two, may explain patients' mental state

    (COLUMBUS, Ohio) July 2013 -- For years doctors have known that obstructive sleep apnea can take a serious physical toll on patients, increasing their risk of things like high blood pressure and heart disease. What they are less certain about is the psychological toll it can take.
    We know that approximately half of all patients with obstructive sleep apnea also suffer from depression and anxiety, and we aren't exactly sure why, said Ulysses Magalang, MD, Director of the Sleep Disorders Center at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical System.
    But a new study by Magalang, Randy Nelson, PhD and a team of researchers may shed some new light on the situation.
    In lab tests scientists found that exposure to dim light during sleep dramatically increases depression and anxiety in mice with obstructive sleep apnea, and the same likely holds true for humans.
    What's particularly striking is how little light it actually takes to disrupt sleep cycles. We're talking a minimal amount, even low wattage night lights or alarm clocks can have an impact, said Magalang.

  • Snoring Device


    Some people may laugh about it, but snoring is really not that funny. It can disrupt your sleep and that of your spouse. And if you have sleep apnea and you stop breathing during the night, you have an increased risk of cardiovascular problems such as high blood pressure or even heart attack. Doctors at Mayo Clinic are helping many patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea and people who simply snore get a good night's rest. That's thanks to a special dental device.

  • Continuous Positive Airway Pressure


    To treat obstructive sleep apnea, your healthcare provider may suggest an air pressure device known as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). CPAP is the most effective treatment used to treat obstructie sleep apnea. CPAP involves wearing a mask over the nose and sometimes over the mouth and nose. The flow generator creates a predetermined air pressure that prevents the tissues of the airway from collapsing, thereby keeping the airway open, preventing snoring, and sleep disruption. The CPAP device does not breathe for you, but rather allows for an adequate or maintained airway so that you are able to breathe. Learn more:

    Sleep Apnea Therapy (most common)
    Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). If you have moderate to severe sleep apnea, you might benefit from using a machine that delivers air pressure through a mask while you sleep. With CPAP (SEE-pap), the air pressure is somewhat greater than that of the surrounding air and is just enough to keep your upper airway passages open, preventing apnea and snoring.

  • Small Implant Makes Big Difference In Sleep Apnea


    Study: Pacemaker-like device significantly improves sleep, quality of life

    (COLUMBUS, Ohio) September 2013 -- If you're one of the 12 million Americans with sleep apnea, you know how hard it can be to get a good night's sleep. Patients have tried everything from breathing strips to overnight CPAP masks to ease their conditions.

    Now, there is a new approach. Doctors have successfully tested an implantable pacemaker-like device to help patients with central sleep apnea, considered the most dangerous form of this sleep disorder.

    Using this device, we've been able to reduce the number of central sleep apnea events by nearly 90 percent, said William Abraham, MD, director of the division of cardiovascular medicine at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. The results are remarkable.

    Most people are more familiar with obstructive sleep apnea, where the throat closes during sleep and causes loud snoring. It is usually treated with a CPAP breathing mask.

    But during central sleep apnea, the signals from the brain that tell your body to breathe simply stop, said Dr. Abraham.

    Unfortunately, we don't have any good treatments for these patients, he said, but this device may be a promising start.

  • Beyond the Barriers: Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatments


    Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing is briefly and repeatedly interrupted during sleep. Consequences include, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and risk factors for stroke and heart failure. The goals of treating breathing disorders are to restore regular breathing during sleep, relieve symptoms such as loud snoring and daytime sleepiness. Breathing devices such as a CPAP can be challenging for some patients to use; however the current innovative treatment solution is now to use mouthpieces - which can help mild to moderate apnea or snoring. The O2VentTM is the latest in customizable oral appliance and acts as a second nose. It's designed to direct the flow of air through to the back of the throat, bypassing nasal and soft palate obstructions and preventing tongue obstruction. This device is less obtrusive, comfortable to wear, more portable, makes no noise, are not reliant on a power source. Speak to your doctor and see if O2VentTM is right for you.

  • Why Sleep Apnea Raises Risk of Stroke, Heart Attack


    This is the VOA Special English Health Report, from |

    Loud snoring can be a problem, and not just for other people trying to sleep with the noise. It can also be a sign of sleep apnea. People with this condition repeatedly stop breathing while they sleep -- and may not even know it. Dr. David Gross at the National Rehabilitation Hospital of Washington says: Sleep apnea means that the airway, the upper airway, cuts off at night ... The muscles get all relaxed and cut off and this can happen over and over again, sixty to one hundred times an hour.Most people who snore do not have sleep apnea. But doctors say most people with sleep apnea do snore. Sleep apnea not only reduces sleep quality and makes people feel tired during the day. More and more studies show that it can also lead to strokes and heart attacks. Dr. Michael Twery at the National Institutes of Health explains why: Whenever we run out of enough air to breathe, it sends alerting signals to our minds. It raises the level of stress hormones. It tells our heart to work harder.When a person stops breathing, oxygen levels in the blood decrease. This happens again and again with sleep apnea. Dr. Twery compares the effect of sleep apnea to racing a car engine for long periods of time: Our heart becomes overworked and we become more vulnerable to heart attack. And also strokes. Dr. Twery led a study of about nine thousand people who had sleep apnea but no history of heart disease. The nine-year study showed that the more severe the sleep apnea, the greater the chance of a stroke. Dr. Twery says it found that men can experience up to a three-fold increased risk of stroke.Sleep apnea seems to be more common in men than in women, and it becomes more common as people get older. The most common form is called obstructive sleep apnea. People who have it are often overweight or have it in their family, but it can affect anyone. In children, for example, enlarged tonsils in the throat can interfere with breathing as they sleep. The next step in research will involve sleep apnea patients who have already had a stroke or heart attack. Researchers will study whether patients can reduce the risk of a second one with a machine called a CPAP. CPAP is continuous positive airway pressure. It provides a flow of air into the throat and lungs while the person sleeps. For VOA Special English, I'm Carol Presutti.

    04:00 - Test Yourself For Sleep Apnea

    It's true. The majority of people who have sleep apnea are overweight or obese. The more fat tissue we have in our neck, the more pressure it puts on our upper airway especially when we lie flat on our back (supine sleep). People who suffer from sleep apnea really struggle to lose weight for two main reasons. The first is that because our body is stressed and not sleeping well, the hormone cortisol is released which results in our body storing energy, cortisol also makes us crave carbs (not good for weight loss!). The second is that sleep apnea reduces our energy levels and thus the motivation to move and exercise is impaired.

    If you suffer from sleep apnea and are wanting to lose weight you first need to treat your sleep apnea! Once you start treating your sleep apnea, you set the wheels in motion for weight loss! With a good night sleep your body will be well rested, your metabolism will improve and you will have more energy for movement / exercise.

    Now even if you manage to lose a lot of weight, you might still need some form of therapy to help with your breathing during the night but no matter what the outcome, you will be much better off for many many reasons.

    I hope you enjoy this short video. Have a great day
