There are two forms of sleep apnea:
Central Sleep Apnea occurs when signals from the brain fail to reach the muscles responsible for maintaining your nighttime breathing.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea can develop as the muscles of the throat, the tongue or other soft tissues relax and block airways during the night.
While central sleep apnea requires advanced treatment from specialists and neurologists, obstructive sleep apnea can often be effectively treated by our team. It is vital that you undergo accurate testing to determine the form of sleep apnea that you may be suffering from. Inaccurate diagnoses can lead to improper treatment and an increase in your symptoms.
