Sleep Apnea


Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatments in NYC & NJ

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a disorder in which normal breathing is interrupted during sleep due to the blockage of airflow in the upper airway breathing passages. Most commonly sleep apnea occurs when the muscles in the back of throat relax as we enter our more restful deep stages of sleep (Stage 3) or our dream state (REM) sleep. Dr. Monica Tadros in snoring surgery NJ specializes in sleep apnea treatments for her patients in Englewood, NJ and Bergen County. Obstructive Sleep Apnea affects approximately 18 million adults in the United States.

Sleep Apnea In Depth

by Monica Tadros, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Blockage of airflow during sleep apnea causes prolonged hypoxia (low levels of oxygen) in the blood. As the concentration of carbon dioxide builds up in the bloodstream, the brain finally overrides the lapse in breathing, forcing the patient into a lighter stage of sleep (stage 1 or 2) to reposition and resume breathing. Since obstructive occurs in the deep stages of sleep, it is unrecognized by the individual who never fully wakes up. Extreme fatigue and unrestful sleep result from sleep apnea because the patient fails to enter the restorative stage 3 deep sleep. A sleep study called a polysomnogram is important to evaluate all sleep disordered breathing. Positional statistics can help differentiate different areas of obstruction and causes of sleep apnea. This testing will also help differentiate Obstructive Sleep Apnea from the less common neurologic condition called central sleep apnea, in which the brain fails to initiate or control breathing during sleep. Dr. Monica Tadros is a best-rated expert in treating sleep apnea in NYC & NJ and can restore your sleep and correct these conditions in our office.

How is Obstructive Sleep Apnea treated?

Many factors contribute to obstructive sleep apnea NJ and a thorough evaluation sleep apnea doctor requires a sleep apnea study and comprehensive airway examination that highlights: nasal obstruction (deviated nasal septum/turbinate overgrowth) tonsil enlargement soft palate laxity and uvula enlargement oropharyngeal tissue hypertrophy (overgrowth) tongue enlargement (macroglossia) and hyoid bone position epiglottis position. Primary treatment in NYC & NJ includes a trial of CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) appliance during sleep and goal-directed weight loss. Adjunct sleep apnea related procedures may include an oral dental appliance or nasal surgery to decrease airway pressures and improve CPAP comfort and compliance. Some sleep apnea NJ patients cannot tolerate or comply with CPAP and should be evaluated by an ENT sleep apnea surgery specialist. Depending on the severity of sleep apnea, and the associated pathology a number of procedures may open the airway, improve snoring and diminish apneic events.  A variety of sleep apnea procedures can be used to tailor a sleep apnea treatment regimen.
