Vibrations of the soft tissue and weak muscles of throat are the major cause of snoring. Snoring has become of the major issue in the world today. However new techniques and treatments are developed which helps to you to stop snoring.
Chicago is one of the largest places where lots of snoring people are reported. In Chicago many people are suffering from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder which occurs at night while sleeping. This has a serious repercussion on your health. It can cause high risk of heart diseases like heart attacks and Diabetes. If you're living in Chicago you will find that the study made by Dr. David Carley is the most effective method to cure your snoring problem. Some of the methods are as follows.
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
Continuous positive airway pressure is an appliance which pumps air of the room towards your nose. This machine helps you to breathe properly by opening your airways. Sleep apnea can be treated effectively by this device. People with severe symptoms have found this device very helpful and can now sleep more comfortably. The drawback of this device is that it causes dryness of the mouth and can be uncomfortable.
Tonsils are the located at the back of the throat on either side of the uvula. The tonsils collect bacteria while breathing this allows the blood cells to create special immune proteins to fight infection. Enlarging of the tonsils can lead to blockage in the back of the throat. This leads to vibration of the tonsils and palate which cause snoring. If the tonsils are causing a severe blockage and if your breathing stops for a short interval while you are sleeping than they should be removed.
The operation of tonsils is very simple. Tonsils are removed through your mouth and the blood vessels are sealed. The only complication in this operation is that of bleeding. If there is a lot of pain than patients are given painkillers or antibiotics to cure them.
There are four pairs of sinuses namely frontal, maxillary, ethnocide and sphenoid. These are present on either side of nose and between eyes. Sinuses are the air chambers. The blockage of the drainage system of sinus leads to infection of mucus it is mostly caused while you are having cold.
The surgery of sinus is not at all painful. The patient is anaesthetized and the nose is examined under an operating telescope. The surgery is carried out using micro instruments. The polyps and the areas of the blockage are removed. Serious complications are very rare in this surgery. The possible complication is of bleeding.
