Education is important, which is why Dr. Mayoor Patel and Dr. David Dillard teamed up to write “Freedom from CPAP: Sleep Apnea Hurts, the Cure Doesn’t Have To,” which can be purchased at: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/sleep. Through the creation of this book, Dr. Patel and Dr. Dillard hope to help dentists across the country educate their patients of sleep apnea and the importance of treatment.
“It was a pleasure working with Dr. Dillard on this book. We hope that patients and their loved ones will purchase this book to better their lives through improved sleep,” said Dr. Mayoor Patel. “Sleep apnea can hinder many aspects of a person’s life, which is why the treatment should be convenient and easy. In this book we touch base on what sleep apnea is, the negative effects of not seeking treatment and the available treatment options other than CPAP.”
Obstructive sleep apnea is a silent killer. Dr. Patel works with Dr. Dillard to educate potential sufferers in “Freedom from CPAP: Sleep Apnea Hurts, the Cure Doesn’t Have To.” Sleep apnea quietly destroys memory, motivation, and even marriages. Sleep apnea sufferers run the risk of losing their jobs, delaying promotions, and straining relationships—important factors in a person’s life.

If you’re suffering from sleep apnea and if you are also a habitual snorer a robotic polar bear pillow might be something worth checking out. It has been named as “Jukusui-kun”, and was developed by Wasaeda University’s Kabe Lab in Japan.
The major objective of developing this robotic polar bear pillow is to help those who suffer from sleep apnea and heavy snoring by gently tickling the user’s face.
By tickling the user’s face, this would cause the user to roll onto their side while remaining in a state of deep sleep, or so it has been reported. Rolling onto your side while sleeping has been said to help reduce snoring, so while some of us find it hard to actively sleep on our sides during a deep state of sleep, this is where Jukusui-kun comes in.
