Sleep apnea and snoring treatment (severe forms)

Sleep medicine department.

"Treatment of severe forms of snoring, sleep apnea and and respiratory failure during sleep"

This programme is necessary if you noticed three or more of the following symptoms:

  • Loud snoring;
  • Indications to respiratory arrest during sleep;
  • Restless, unrefreshing sleep;
  • Frequent urination at night (> 2 times per night);
  • Apnea or asthma attacks at night;
  • Night sweating (particularly in the area of the head);
  • Weakness, headaches in the morning;
  • Excruciating daytime sleepiness;
  • Chronic fatigue;
  • High blood pressure (mainly at night and morning hours);
  • Overweight;
  • Low sexual potency.

In this case, there is a high probability that you suffer such disease as cessations of breathing during sleep or operating medical terms, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is characterized by a periodic collapse of the respiratory tracts on the level of pharynx during sleep. In fact, a patient suffers episodes of acute breathlessness caused by overlapping of the anatomical airways along with a dramatic lack of oxygen in the body. Often non-sleeping family members are the witnesses of this condition; they watch anxiously as snoring stops suddenly followed by a scary cessation of breathing for about 20-40 seconds, then the sleeping person snores loudly and begins to breathe again. Sometimes up to 500 cessations of breathing can happen per night with total duraiotn up to 4 hours; it leads to both acute and chronic lack of oxygen, significantly increases the risk of serious cardiovascular complications: arterial hypertension, arrhythmias, stroke, myocardial infarction and sudden death in sleep. Extremely dangerous is excessive drowsiness when driving, which is a symptom of the disease. Patients with sleep apnea have risk to get into an accident 4-7 times higher in comparison with healthy people. Taking into consideration that this disease has a high risk of complications, on the other hand diagnosis and treatment gives rapid and significant improvement of the life quality of all the patients with the above symptoms, the programme "Diagnosis and treatment of severe forms of snoring, sleep apnea and respiratory failure during sleep" is highly recommended.

To diagnose syndrome of obstructive sleep apnea in the Sleep Department of the Medical Rehabilitation Center "Barviha" we use polysomnography - method of long registration of breathing, snoring, respiratory efforts, blood oxygen saturation, body position, motor activity, electrocardiogram, sleep structure and a number of other parameters during sleep. Accurate assessment of the severity of snoring and sleep apnea allows to predict possible complications, prognosis of the disease as well as to determine the optimal treatment tactics, which depends on the combination of causes and severity of breathing disorders during sleep. An important aspect of treatment is elimination of the chronic difficulty of the nasal breathing. In case of noncomplicated snoring and light forms of apnea, a good effect is achieved by the operative, laser and radiofrequency interventions on the excessive soft palate and palatine uvula. In case there are indications for surgical treatment, the patient receives a referral to ENT-centers specializing in the surgical treatment of snoring.

At moderate and severe forms of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, especially with patients suffering obesity, surgical interventions on the soft palate and palatine uvula do not give effect. In this case, the most effective treatment is a CIPAP (CPAP) therapy- through mask auxiliary method of lung ventilation by permanent positive pressure during night sleep. Treatment is held in the Sleep Medicine Department of the Medical Rehabilitation Center "Barviha". On the very first night snoring and breathing stops during sleep are eliminated, arterial oxygen saturation becomes normal, the quality of sleep improves. After a few nights of treatment, patients having a severe form of the disease feel a significant improvement in the quality of life. For maximum effect, treatment should be regular during the night sleep at home. If you are reading this text, it is likely that you or someone from your family suffer snoring and sleep apnea. Sign up for this program right now and perhaps in the near future you will be able to say like the great Einstein: "I spend a third of my life sleeping, and not the worst part”.
