There Are CPAP Alternatives

  • Sleep Apnea is One of the most under-diagnosed and under-treated disease

  • Sleep Apnea MUST BE TREATED DUE TO THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

  • Sleep Apnea has been linked to several comorbidities like High blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, Diabetes, Stroke, and Alzheimer's Disease

  • Sleep Apnea has been linked to many motor vehicle accidents because it repeatedly disrupts sleep during the night, the resultant sleepiness during the day is a leading reason for many motor vehicle accidents

  • For many years, the treatment of choice for sleep apnea was a big bulky machine called CPAP

  • Patients wear a mask over their nose and/or mouth

  • Continuous Air Pressure is delivered through the mask in order to keep the airway from collapsing

  • The problem with CPAP is patient compliance because it is Uncomfortable/Bulky/Noisy

  • So for 50% of Patients, the treatment becomes worse than the condition
