Sleep & Snoring Devices Huntington, Long Island NY

It is estimated that over twelve million people in America have sleep apnea, a potentially dangerous medical condition.  Many people are unaware that sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.  In most cases, your insurance will cover the cost of a sleep study to determine whether or not you are a candidate for an appliance to address sleep apnea. 

Snoring is also a problem that interrupts a good night’s sleep.  Dr. Sims, following thorough examination, will decide whether or not you are a candidate for a snore guard, a small and comfortable appliance worn at night.   

 

Sleep Apnea treatments Huntington NY


Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by a blockage of the airway, when the soft tissue at the rear of the throat closes during sleep.  The Greek work “apnea” literally means without breath.  In severe cases, sleep is interrupted hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer.  In some types of apnea, the airway is not blocked but the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe.  The brain will eventually arouse the sleeper to resume breathing, however sleep is interrupted so often that the patient feels tired all the time.


Sleep apnea is very common.  According to the National Institute of Health, it affects more than twelve million Americans. Overweight males over the age of forty are in the highest risk category, but sleep apnea is seen in children and adults of any age.  Despite the serious consequences, the majority of patients go untreated.  It is one of the most serious medical problems in America today.  Sleep studies and treatment are covered by most insurance plans.  The devices for sleep apnea are now much smaller and more comfortable.  Dr. Sims treats sleep apnea following proper diagnosis.
