Quick Treatment for Sleep Apnea

0

Sleep apnea could be literally killing you while you sleep. It increases the risk for diabetes, heart attack and stroke. So it is a problem that you want to take care of. Plus, getting a good night’s sleep is its own reward.

In addition to conventional treatments such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines and oral mouthpieces that advance the jaw, newer treatments include Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy, which is a small disposable patch that fits over each nostril. A central valve produces pressure in the airway so that it remains open during sleep.

The Winx Sleep Therapy System uses a soft mouthpiece that is connected to a small vacuum console. The device creates suction to open the throat.

Of course, we all have trouble falling asleep some nights. So if you are having trouble with that, we have the help you need for a great night’s sleep.
