Sleep Treatments

treatments1At FusionSleep®, we strive to successfully treat sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and insomnia. We utilize a comprehensive approach for the diagnosis and treatment of adult sleep disorders using the latest technology and therapeutic options. The most common treatment solutions include:

 

 

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

treatments2A CPAP is a device that gently blows pressurized air into the nose via a mask that is placed over the nose and/or mouth and is used to treat sleep apnea. For individuals with sleep apnea, the CPAP device holds the air passageway open so that a normal sleep pattern can be developed. CPAP is the most effective method for treating sleep apnea.

Behavioral Therapy
In mild cases of sleep apnea and other disorders, Behavioral Therapy may be all that is needed. Depending on the type of disorder, recommended approaches include:

  • Weight loss
  • Alcohol intake and/or smoking cessation
  • A change in sleep position
  • An exercise regimen

Medication
A wide array of medications are available to manage sleep disorders such as insomnia, sleep apnea and narcolepsy. Our board certified sleep doctors will create an individualized medication plan for each patient. Patients are also advised to maintain good sleep practices while using medication for sleep.

Other possible sleep treatments include surgery and dental devices. Although these options are not our first recommendation, we can refer you to an appropriate doctor for these procedures.
