Central and complex sleep apnea treatment
Central sleep apnea may be caused by neuromuscular or heart disorders.
Treating these root problems, such as optimizing heart failure therapy,
can eliminate central sleep apnea problems.
-Supplemental oxygen treatmentUse supplemental oxygen during sleep may help central sleep apnea problem.
-Continuous positive airway pressure treatment
This treatment is also used to treat obstructive sleep apnea. It involves
wearing a pressurized mask which is attached to a small pump, over the
nose when sleeping.
This is an airflow device which observes and stores the breathing pattern in a built-in computer. The equipment uses pressure to normalize the breathing pattern and prevent interruptions to the breathing.
This treatment may be more effective than CPAP for treating central sleep
apnea. However, as this is a new device, more research as to the effectiveness
of treatment is needed.
