Patient

During sleep, breathing is repeatedly interrupted (apnea) due to muscle relaxation that blocks the airway, preventing air from reaching the lungs.

This pathology can be treated with a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) used during sleeping hours.

Sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing is repeatedly interrupted during the night. When a person has sleep apnea, the airways become narrowed or blocked, making it difficult for air to enter the lungs. As a result, brief pauses in breathing called apneas occur.

These pauses can last from a few seconds to more than a minute and may be repeated many times during the night. As a result of apneas, the affected person does not receive enough oxygen, which can have a negative impact on their health and well-being.

However, it is important to remember that sleep apnea is treatable. There are several treatment options available, and one of them is the OrthoApnea mandibular advancement device (MAD). This device helps keep the airway open by gently repositioning the jaw during sleep, allowing for proper airflow and more restful sleep.

Do I have sleep apnea?

If you have experienced a number of symptoms related to this breathing disorder over a prolonged period of time, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. Often, these symptoms develop gradually rather than immediately.

You may have been experiencing the consequences of apnea for months, or even years, without being aware of it.

Frequently Asked Questions

The medical diagnosis of a patient with sleep apnea should be made by a pulmonologist or neurophysiologist who should be consulted from the outset.

It is also possible to reach this diagnosis through screening cases of patients referred by doctors in General Medicine and Dentistry.

The Sleep Unit consists of a team of physicians from different specialties, including pulmonologists, neurophysiologists, otolaryngologists, etc., who focus on studying and treating sleep pathologies with specialized tools and resources.

According to the latest studies, there are about 7 million people in Spain suffering from sleep apnea, of which only 1,500,000 are being treated with CPAP. The remainder is made up of the nearly 5.5 million people who are undiagnosed.

Among them, 5% use a mandibular advancement device as treatment and many thousands of people have failed to adapt to the use of CPAP and are therefore untreated.

Always by prescription, the detection that will lead to the diagnosis of apnea requires a sleep study that will measure the sleep cycles and stages of sleep according to certain parameters.

The study can be performed by polygraph or polysomnography.
