Sleep Apnea Solutions and Treatments in Montreal/Quebec City
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) occurs when your tongue and throat muscles relax and block the passage of air into the airways. Elderly people are the highest risk group for this sleep disorder because with age the throat muscles sag or become less toned. OSA is also more common in men than women before 50 years old, after it becomes equal and among those who have cardiovascular problems or have diabetes. Others at risk include:
- Individuals who are overweight or obese
- Have excessive fat in the neck
- Have inherently narrow airways due to enlarged tonsils or adenoids
- Suffer from chronic hypertension or nasal chronic congestion
- Have depression
The Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy promotes restful sleep and remains the treatment of choice for OSA, SDB. A CPAP device generates the prescribed air pressure through a tube and mask that keeps the upper airway open during your deep sleep. The cleared airways enable breathing without pauses or interruptions and control your snoring, hypopnea (shallow breathing episodes), or sleep apnea condition.
At GRS Médical, we do CPAP titration test, recommended by most doctors. This helps our sleep apnea specialists to devise the right level of treatment pressure for programming your CPAP device. Typically, this test is performed over 5 nights, always at home, with the device that will allow us to optimize your treatment.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the ultimate sleep apnea solution that can help you get a good night’s sleep. Let our sleep apnea clinician in Montreal/Quebec City guide you through the best solutions to treat your sleep-disordered breathing.
