We created this infographic to teach people about Sleep Apnea Symptoms and Treatment. If you have any questions about sleep apnea, just read this infographic. Most people that have sleep apnea never find an alternative treatment and suffer for years. Plus, it’s not fair to your spouse when you snore like a beast. Dr. Darren Flowers has been treating sleep apnea for years, and should be your number one choice when choosing a sleep apnea doctor.
In one 7-hour period of sleep, a person with obstructive sleep apnea can have as many as 420 apneas. This infographic from a dentist in Portland shows the risks associated with sleep apnea and suggests some treatments.

Now an alternative form of C.P.A.P. is gaining popularity: a patch that fits over the nostrils. Called Provent, the patch holds two small plugs, one for each nostril, that create just enough air pressure to keep the airways open at night. It is far less intrusive than the traditional C.P.A.P. machine. It is also more expensive, and it doesn’t work for every patient.
Sleep disturbances can contribute to health issues or obstruct the healing process. Make an appointment at NIHA to get treated for a sleep appliance, continuous positive airway pressure therapy, or help with lifestyle changes. (202) 237-7000
