Snoring, Not Funny But Deadly!

'The Game Plan Is Simple: Tackle It and Defeat It Before You Lose Your Life Over It.'
A 10-Year Review of 5,600 Snoring Patients Treated With Laser Reflects a Low Number of Complications But Greater Improvement On Patients' Breathing and Sleeping


PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Obstructive sleep apnea is a major culprit in heart attacks and strokes occurring in the middle of the night. Unfortunately most adults who suffer from that are not aware of this concept and it is estimated that over 38,000 die each year due to this ailment. Sleep apnea refers to a disorder when a person experiences breaks or pauses in breathing during sleep. Our body functions with the use of oxygen entering through the nasal passages and mouth, into the lungs and throughout all the vital structures in the body. Once a person stops breathing, and the throat becomes blocked during the night, then oxygen and air can't flow to the lungs. The lack of this vital fuel to our body could have devastating consequences to our health.
"One of the primary signs of apnea is loud snoring," according to Dr. Mansoor Madani, Director of the Center For Corrective Surgery based in Bala Cynwyd, PA and the author of a major long-term study of surgeries to treat snoring and sleep apnea published in the latest issue of the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. "Other important signs are stop breathing while asleep, restless sleep, morning headache, heart palpitation and memory loss," adds Madani. Studies reported in the literature have shown that patients who suffer from sleep apnea may have up to nine times more potential to die from a heart attack or stroke.

The fact is one out of seven Americans suffer from sleep apnea. While snoring can be a humorous habit, sleep apnea can be deadly affecting people of all ages, not only the elderly. Excess body weight and enlarged neck size even in an athletic person with minimal body fat can lead to sleep apnea. Athletes resort to anything that improves their performance on the field: steroids, nasal bandages and even oxygen treatment. "During our study we were able to identify at least eight areas that contributed to partial or total blockage of airflow in the snoring person's head and neck area," explains Dr. Madani. Size of the tongue, enlarged uvula and tonsils are amongst the most important areas. "It seem logical that if your throat is closing up because of these excess tissues, removing them will allow more air to get to your body and you won't be deprived of precious oxygen," adds Madani.

A variety of methods and techniques have been attempted to treat sleep apnea and snoring. CPAP treatment has been favored by sleep specialists and proven to be extremely effective. However, patient compliance for use of this device has been a continued concern. "We now use a sophisticated radiofrequency probe and a special CO2 laser to reduce nasal blockage, and remove the excess tissues in the roof of his mouth," explained Dr. Mansoor Madani, whose latest paper represents one of the most extensive studies of effects, benefits, as well as risks, of surgical corrections of snoring and sleep apnea. "This is an exciting time for medicine. We can perform a procedure of this magnitude in an office setting in a short period of time with the least amount of risks to patients," adds Madani.
