Snoring Causing Problems at Home?
- Posted on: Mar 8 2017
Sleeping next to someone that snores can be miserable, and it can lead to significant relationship issues. Sleeping in separate beds, wearing ear plugs, and kicking the snorer, is not fun!
The good news is that it is treatable! There are many options to arrive at a successful resolution available with modern treatments.
Most people never seek treatment because they don’t want to go to a sleep lab with all those wires and some person watching them. They also don’t want to wear a CPAP…so why bother?
At Sinus & Snoring Specialists, we are a fully accredited sleep facility, by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and all our sleep tests can be done in the comfort of your own home! We use a very sophisticated, but simple to use, home sleep testing device made by Phillips Respironics. This test is highly accurate, just like an in lab sleep study, to evaluate if you have sleep apnea.
We also have all of the diagnostic equipment to accurately identify the cause of sleep apnea and snoring for each individual patient. Snoring and sleep apnea are multifactorial and the treatment needs to be tailored to the patient. There are many successful treatments besides CPAP. With comfortable IV sedation, we use simple office procedures, such as Balloon Sinuplasty, to open the nasal airway along with techniques to elevate and stiffen the soft palate. These procedures usually take about 15 minutes and most patients can work the next day.

Don’t let snoring cause any more sleepless nights or cause anymore fights in your home! You will be happy you did.
