Sleep Disorder Treatments

Sleep apnea is a most common disorder in which you will experience a symptom of having one or more pauses in the breathing or shallow the breaths while you are sleeping. Breathing pauses may last from few seconds to some minutes. They will occur 30 times or more an hour. Generally, normal breathing will starts again, sometimes with loud snort or a choking sound.


Sleep apnea generally is a chronic (ongoing) condition which disrupts the sleep. When the breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you will usually move out of the deep sleep & into light sleep. The main common type of sleep apnea was obstructive sleep apnea. In this type of condition, the airway will collapses or becomes blocked while you are sleeping. This will causes shallow breathing or breathing pauses.

Causes of the sleep apnea are:

  • Throat muscles & tongue relax more than the normal.
  • If person was overweight, the extra soft fat tissue will thicken the wall of windpipe. This will narrow the inside of windpipe, which in turn makes it very harder to keep open.

Obstructive sleep apnea was very common problem. About 50% of the people who have this type of problem are overweight or obese. Men will effect more than women to have sleep apnea. Even though this condition can occur at any age, the risk will increases as age increases. A family history of the sleep apnea will also increase the risk.

Sleep apnea will be treated with breathing devices, lifestyle changes, mouthpieces and surgery. Treatment will also improve other related medical problems which are linked to sleep apnea, like high blood pressure. Treatment will also reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke & diabetes.
