Treatment Options


PAP (Positive Airway Pressure) Devices:

CPAP: Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. A CPAP device mechanically delivers a preset  amount of air pressure through a mask which functions to maintain an open airway during sleep. This pressure eliminates snoring and apnea events.

BiLevel: A PAP device that delivers a higher preset PAP pressure while breathing in (inspiration), and a lower pressure while breathing out. This can make use of a PAP device significantly more comfortable.

Auto-PAP: This type of PAP device can sense apnea events and automatically adjust the amount of air pressure delivered to eliminate apneas while being used, helping to ensure effective (therapeutic) pressures are delivered.

ASV: The Adaptive Servo-Ventilator is a highly complex device that adjusts multiple pressure delivery and breathing rate scenarios to treat patients with Cheyne-Stokes Respiration and Complex Sleep Disordered Breathing (CSDB).

Oral Appliances: These devices are fitted in the mouth and gently press the lower jaw forward, helping pull tissue off the back of the airway reducing apneas when used for appropriate patient populations.







Surgical Procedures:

UPPP: Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty. A surgical procedure on the palate in the back of the throat to improve airflow and reduce apnea risk for select patient populations.


LAUP: Laser Assisted Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty. Similar to the UPPP but performed with a laser surgical tool.



Pillar Implants: A procedure where three small implants are inserted into the back of the throat to stiffen the soft palate to help stop snoring. In some cases, it can also help reduce apneas.




Somnoplasty: This procedure uses Radio Frequency Ablation(RFA) to stiffen tissues in the back of the throat to reduce snoring and apneas in appropriate patients.
