Sophisticated Technology for Sleep Apnea Treatment
Posted: July 23, 2020
Sleep apnea treatment has come a long way in recent years to help you take advantage of the positive health effects of CPAP therapy. Advancing technology helps make treatment options even more convenient for those who suffer from sleep apnea. Also, sleep apnea treatment technology helps our sleep team remotely monitor and adjust your sleep therapy to help maximize results. Treatment from your sleep apnea clinic can help you reduce your risk for serious and life-threatening conditions related to untreated sleep apnea, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Therefore, it’s important to seek sleep apnea care if you believe you may have this sleep disorder.
Benefits of Sleep Apnea Treatment for Your Health
Sleep apnea sufferers are approximately three times more likely to die prematurely. This condition also increases your risk for heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and even car accidents. In addition, people with sleep apnea often suffer from daytime sleepiness, difficulties concentrating, headaches, low libido, and even erectile dysfunction. Sleep apnea can also lead to depression, irritability.
Sleep apnea causes you to stop breathing during the night, usually due to a physical blockage in your airway. This causes you to breathe shallowly or stop breathing altogether for seconds or minutes at a time. These events are called apnea events and can happen upwards of 30 times every single hour you spend asleep. Sleep apnea can deprive your brain, heart, and other vital organs of oxygen. In all, sleep apnea can not only shorten your life, it may also affect the quality of your life. Therefore, it’s important to seek sleep apnea treatment if you believe you have sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea treatment offers many benefits to those with this sleep disorder. In fact, using CPAP therapy for seven hours a night can reduce your risk for serious and potentially life-threatening conditions linked to sleep apnea. For example, for every hour you use your CPAP device each night, your blood pressure decreases. Additionally, sleep apnea treatment with CPAP therapy can decrease your risk of taking part in a car accident by 70% according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Treatment for your sleep apnea may also help improve mood, cognitive function, and overall quality of life. Today, sleep apnea treatment is even easier and more convenient to help you reap the benefits of managing the condition.
Sleep Apnea Treatment Telemonitoring for a Better Night’s Sleep
One of the major advances in sleep apnea treatment technology includes the ability for our sleep team to remotely monitor your therapy and progress. Previously, many sleep apnea patients only received a follow up about one month after starting their CPAP therapy. Often, this appointment only involved checking for hours of usage each night for insurance purposes.
Instead, our sleep apnea clinic offers sleep telemonitoring throughout treatment to help you optimize your sleep health. In addition to looking at hours of use, we can also assess for other important factors that may help us adjust your sleep apnea therapy for optimal results. For example, our sleep team can also determine if you’re still experiencing apnea events. If this is the case, you may just need higher pressure, which we can adjust remotely.
In addition, our proprietary sleep apnea treatment and telemonitoring technology allows us to detect leaks in your mask to determine if you need a re-fit, a different mask, or some additional support learning how to wear your mask properly. In essence, you receive all the support you need with telemonitored sleep apnea treatment from our sleep clinic.
Remote CPAP telemonitoring helps save you time, as it means fewer appointments and less travel to detect or troubleshoot problems or perform necessary treatment adjustments. Instead, if we notice areas where we can optimize your sleep apnea treatment, our sleep team will make those adjustments remotely. Also, if we notice a mask leak or if you haven’t been using your device, we’ll give you a call to learn how we can help you with your therapy.
CPAP Technology for a Great Experience
However, sleep apnea treatment technology doesn’t just apply to telemonitoring for a better treatment experience. The CPAP devices we provide also offer advanced technology to help you with your therapy. Our devices offer connectivity options that allow your device to automatically send your sleep data to our team for monitoring. Therefore, our devices make treatment monitoring and optimization effortless for you.
In addition, your CPAP device can also let you know when it’s time for maintenance or replacement supplies. For example, it will give you a reminder when it’s time to replace the air filters. Dirty CPAP air filters can pick up germs which may harm your health and cause unwanted symptoms. Our sleep apnea treatment technology helps prevent these issues by notifying you when it’s time to replace these supplies. We offer technologically advanced devices and treatment solutions to help you improve your sleep health.
