Treatment of obstructive sleep apnea

There are many different treatment options for relieving sleep apnea symptoms. They include machines that support breathing during the night, surgery, and other special aids. CPAP therapy, which takes compressed air to support breathing, is used as standard therapy.People who have obstructive sleep apnea often snore loudly and have long breathing pauses (apnea) while they are sleeping. This causes them to frequently wake up at night, makes their sleep less restful, and leaves them worn out and tired during the day. The snoring itself is harmless.
