Sleep Apnea Therapy & Treatment
Do you find yourself severely fatigued in the morning after a full night’s rest? Has your partner told you that you snore? You may have sleep apnea. Dr. Sassan Dadseresht offers sleep apnea therapy for patients in Temecula, Murrieta, Fallbrook, Menifee, and the communities in Riverside County.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disorder that disrupts an individual’s breathing patterns while asleep, which prevents them from reaching a deep, restful slumber. Sleep apnea stops oxygen from reaching the brain, which can lead to much more severe health issues if gone untreated. Symptoms of sleep apnea include daytime fatigue, loud snoring, or gasping for air while asleep.
Sleep apnea is categorized in three types:
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when a physical blockage of the airway causes the individual to stop breathing while asleep. This can be caused by over-relaxed muscles in the throat or a thick neck.
Central sleep apnea occurs when the individual’s brain fails to send signals to the respiratory system, preventing the individual from generating a reliable breathing pattern and causing the individual to wake up periodically.
Complex sleep apnea is a combination of obstructive and central sleep apnea’s symptoms.
If untreated, patients suffering from sleep apnea can go on to develop headaches, depression, hyper tension, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and other severe complications.
What Risk Factors are Associated with Sleep Apnea?
Weight, age, gender, and family history all play a part in an individual’s susceptibility to developing sleep apnea. Each sleep apnea case is unique, therefore each individual requires an evaluation in order to assess their situation. Additionally, existing medical conditions can also contribute to the severity of sleep apnea.
How can I get Help?
Sleep Apnea is entirely treatable. Dr. Sassan Dadseresht provides thorough examinations that measures the severity of each individual’s case. He then suggests several treatment options that will address their particular type of sleep apnea, including administering the use of CPAP machines, dental appliances, and suggesting surgery with a local specialist.
