Treatment of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea treatment can be applied with conservative (non-surgical) and surgical methods today. The problem of sleep apnea in a person can lead to fatigue, daytime sleepiness, impaired concentration and impotence problems. However, the untreated sleep apnea problem can also cause various heart diseases in a long period of time.

As a result of the research carried out, it has been found that the problem of sleep apnea can also cause traffic accidents. So what is sleep apnea, which everyone has heard about, but does not know exactly what it means?

Sleep apnea is explained as stopping breathing for more than 10 seconds during sleep, but in some patients it can occur more than once a night. Stopping breathing means that the oxygen needed by the body cannot be met. As a result of this, negative physical effects are revealed.

Drug Treatment of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea can be improved with medication. However, it should be remembered that the exact method of treatment is not drug therapy. First of all, it is necessary to determine the factors that cause sleep apnea, and treatment planning should be applied according to these factors. The causes of sleep apnea can be listed as follows;

  • Anatomical problems in the nose and throat area
  • Alcohol consumption
  • The use of various sleep medications
  • Obesity or being above the ideal weight
  • Wrong sleeping position

The problem of sleep apnea is usually revealed in adult men. In the problem of sleep apnea, which occurs due to relaxation of soft tissue in the larynx and palate and obstruction of air flow, medication is used for treatment.

A number of drinks can be prepared as a herbal solution for sleep apnea. These drinks have the quality of relaxing the air flow in the larynx.
