OSA Treatment Options

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) occurs when the upper airway becomes narrow as the muscles relax naturally during sleep. This reduces oxygen in the blood and causes arousal from sleep.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

CPAP is a machine that blows air at a prescribed pressure via a hose to a nasal pillow, a nose mask, or a full-face mask keeping the airway open by air pressure in order to reduce airway resistance.

Oral Appliance Therapy

A device worn on the teeth to position the tongue and lower jaw forward while sleeping in order to reduce airway resistance.

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP)

A surgical procedure to widen the space in the back of the throat to reduce the collapsibility of the airway.
