Many health problems a person may experience could be the effects of having obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). So many things can be affected that a person might fail to connect the dots at first. If you are experiencing perplexing health issues, by becoming educated in regards to the symptoms and following through on the knowledge gained, you may be able to achieve a more comfortable life with treatment. Dr. Clint Bruyere and his staff would like to help patients in the Longview area determine if they could benefit from therapies designed to treat OSA.
In order to secure treatment, you must first obtain an accurate diagnosis. This can be done via a sleep study. Dr. Bruyere’s office is pleased to offer help in this area. After discussing it with us, we will help you schedule the testing. Once a diagnosis is made, we are eager to continue our assistance in resolving these issues. We offer several types of oral appliance therapy and are happy to work with you to determine what will work best for you. The general concept is a device that will work to keep an open airway while you are sleeping. This passage being shut off for whatever reason is the problem that needs to be resolved. When the airway is restricted, the brain and body organs become oxygen-deprived and your body systems are stressed to compensate. That’s why if you find yourself tired throughout the day frequently, troubled by loud snoring, waking up many times throughout the night, or experiencing other difficult to connect issues such as high blood pressure or weight gain, consider the possibility that obstructive sleep apnea is the culprit. If not treated, it can lead to serious problems, including heart disease, heart attack, or stroke, some associated eye problems, and depression, just as a short list.
So suffer no longer and avoid the more complicated traditional therapies for sleep apnea.
