How to fix sleep apnea

How to fix sleep apnea
Are there some way how to fix sleep apnea? Sleep apnoea or sleep apnea is one of sleep disorder usually seen when people are having abnormal breathing during sleeping. Usually, it was shown in the form of snoring or teeth's gutting. 

Sleep apnea must be fixed since it's related to overall health condition. The usual form of sleep apnea is Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). CSA is when our breathing was abnormal due to imbalance respiratory and OSA is when the breathing was abnormal due to the blocking of our airflow to the respiratory. Snoring is a common form of sleep apnea. 

How to fix sleep apnea then? Well, let's start from the physical issue. Obesity is one of the causes of sleep apnea. People with obesity turns to have breathing issue since the fat will press down the respiratory way. So, some research said that fixing sleep apnea is by losing weight. 

Another way to fix sleep apnea is by getting rid off the bad habits. Do not drinking alcohols or other sedatives compounds before start sleeping. Those stuffs will make our muscle to move the airway can not relax. And to fix sleep apnea we need relax muscle. 

Scientific way to ease sleep apnea is by having mouth piece. Mandibular advancement device (MAD) is the common mouth piece for sleep apnea. It's functioned like a mouth guard, and put on the lower and upper teets to aid the jaw to relax and make the work of airway better. Also, there is tongue retainer. This device is aimed to keep the tongue from splitting which will cause airway flow easily. 

Some other way to fix sleep apnea is by having CPAP (continous positive airways pressure) device. It's like a mask to be put on the face and there is an elastic tube connected to the nose. It’s like a nebulizer machine, to ease the breathing by pressing the airway's blockade. I hope you can find the answer now on how to fix sleep apnea.
