Once this has been determined you have a choice of having either a sleep ap machine which is a machine that gives you continuous oxygen flow
um into the mouth and that is a machine that works quite well to help treat the sleep apnea Another way to treat the sleep apnea if you're not very comfortable with the sleep ap machine would be to have a guard so this is called a sleep apnea guard or a mandibular advancement device, what this guard does is something you wear in your mouth that draws your lower jaw forward, so by drawing your lower jaw forward what happens is that it opens up your airway and allows more air to go through and
intends to stop that sleep apnea problem of stopping and starting with the breathing so this mandibular advancement device tends to have very good results with people who have got moderate sleep apnea issues and we find that a lot of people who find the sleep ap machine difficult because it restricts the way that they can move
or because of the noise it produces or even because of the cost of the sleep ap machine and tend to be happy trying this mandibular advancement device.

When a person withOSA falls asleep, these muscles relax to a pointwhere the airway collapses and causes a breathing pause. These breathing pauses occurbecause of a blockage in the upper airway. Usually when the soft tissuein the upper airway or
rear of the throat collapses. When the airway closes,breathing stops and the sleeper wakes upto open the airway. The sleeper thenreturns to sleep and the breathing pauseoccurs again. This pattern is repeated untilyou wake up for the day. Symptoms ofObstructive Sleep Apnea. OSA is most commonlyseen in overweight
