Conventional Treatments for OSA
CPAP therapy and surgery used to be the only way patients could get any sleep. A CPAP machine forces the throat open with air. The continuous airway pressure device is hooked to a machine, a tube, and a mask that is worn while sleeping.
As you can imagine a CPAP isn’t the most comfortable thing in the world. In fact, people with OSA often complain that they are uncomfortable and just too cumbersome to use. So much so that they would rather snore and walk up all the time when they are trying to sleep.
