Vista, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2014 -- Sleep Apnea is a term commonly used to describe partial and complete blockage of the throat during sleep, as the muscles and soft tissues relax and close the airway. This can cause chronic snoring, sleep disruption and other problems that can interrupt sleep and leave individuals exhausted, with no idea as to why. North County Sleep Therapy (http://northcountysleeptherapy.com) is helping people identify whether or not they are suffering from sleep apnea by offering free sleep consultations that will help people find appropriate treatment.
The free consultation will include a screening and evaluation of an individual’s sleeping habits, which can be filled out online or in person. If individuals are likely to be suffering from sleep apnea, a monitored sleeping session will be undertaken, which will then be evaluated by a certified sleep physician. A diagnosis can then be made and treatment recommended based on the patient’s individual needs.
For those who already have a diagnosis but are still struggling, North County Sleep Therapy is able to provide a complete review of the treatment options available and will offer to inform them of new developments in oral appliances (http://northcountysleeptherapy.com/oral-appliances) that can address chronic sleep apnea without the need for invasive and expensive equipment.
A spokesperson for North County Sleep Therapy explained, “Clinical studies of oral appliances in recent years have proven to be very effective; in fact so much so that the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has recognized oral appliances as a first line treatment for mild-moderate cases of OSA, and a viable alternative for severe cases in which CPAP cannot be tolerated. With greater awareness for oral appliances we anticipate more people to come forward seeking treatment. We encourage new patients to visit our office by offering a free consultation on treatment options.”
