cpapContinuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) effectively decreases the risk of cardiovascular death in elderly patients who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA),

Findings of a research study conducted in Spain attempted assessment OSA and the effectiveness of CPAP treatment in cardiovascular mortality in the elderly and revealed that the younger patients, elderly patients with severe, untreated sleep apnea have a higher cardiovascular mortality than those with mild to moderate disease or those without sleep apnea.

The research also revealed that treatment with CPAP can reduce cardiovascular mortality in elderly OSA patients to levels similar to those found in patients without disease or with mild to moderate sleep apnea. Read the rest of this entry

provent therapySleepApneaDisorder/[Press Release]/Asheville, NC /Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder suffered by millions of Americans, and shockingly 3 of 4 sufferers go undiagnosed. OSA constitutes the blocking of the airflow to the respiratory system for periods of time causing the sufferer loss of sleep and overall health.

When treating OSA the bulk of physicians will recommend continuous positive airway pressure or CPAP to their patients. This is a very effective method of treatment, but not all users are happy about wearing a CPAP mask throughout the night. In fact around half of users give up on CPAP therapy within a month.

A new alternative is Provent sleep therapy. Provent, manufactured by Ventus Medical, uses a “MicroValve” design which creates back pressure during exhalation to keep the airway from closing.

Provent was put to the test by Journal Sleep when they trialed its use with 250 sleep apnea sufferers. The study concluded that Provent therapy reduced the effects OSA noticeably during a three month time period.

Philips Respironics Improves CPAP Machines

Building on their highly successful System One humidification, Philips  Respironics has introduced an additional humidification solution that enhances  performance, flexibility and comfort for the sleep apnea sufferer. The System  One Heated Tube provides CPAP users with air temperature control, improved humidification and rainout  protection. The Heated Tube can only be found on the Philips Respironics System  One REMstar Auto A-Flex with Heated Humidification and Heated Tube model  DS560TS.

The System One Heated Tube takes into account the room temperature and  humidity by using a sensor at the end of the Heated Tube to allow the CPAP user to choose what temperature is  right for them and at the same time protects against rainout. The Heated  Tube is a welcome advance in CPAP therapy and is just another reason why Philips  Respironics is a leader in the sleep therapy market. Read the rest of this entry

PAP Therapy Helps Children With Sleep Apnea

The health condition of children and adolescents with obstructive sleep apnea becomes much better in terms of attention, anxiety and quality of life after treatment with positive airway pressure (PAP).

It delivers a stream of air through a mask into the nose. Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a condition of interrupted breathing caused by a narrowing in the throat or upper airway, related to large tonsils, obesity or other medical problems.

Using PAP commonly relieves OSAS in adults, among whom it has been studied extensively. However, there have been few studies of PAP in children with OSAS, the American Journal of Respiratory and Clinical Care Medicine reports.

“The benefits occurred even when children didn’t fully adhere to the treatment,” said study leader Carole L. Marcus, sleep specialist and director of the Sleep Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

The Sleep Center follows thousands of children and adolescents with sleep problems, according to a Children’s Hospital statement. Read the rest of this entry

Lee A. Surkin, MD is the first medical practice in the state of North Carolina to offer Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy, an innovative, non-invasive treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) to patients in Greenville and throughout North Carolina. Cleared by the US FDA in 2008, Provent Therapy is a simple and effective new treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea. Provent Therapy utilizes the patient’s own breathing to provide clinically proven results in the treatment of OSA.

CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) is currently the gold standard for treatment of OSA and is extremely effective at treating OSA when worn as directed. However, up to half of all patients are not compliant with CPAP therapy due to the cumbersome nature of the treatment. Provent Therapy was developed to help patients who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy and may benefit from the small non-invasive and effective technology Provent Therapy provides.

People with obstructive sleep apnea are more likely to stick to prescribed treatment when a partner or parent is involved with their treatment, according to a team of sleep researchers.

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the upper airway collapses during sleep. It is the most common type of sleep-disordered breathing, and chances of it occurring become more elevated in obese people.

The first line of treatment for sleep apnea is a non-invasive in-home treatment called CPAP, continuous positive airway pressure therapy. However, if patients do not use the equipment properly, or at all, it cannot help. Read the rest of this entry
