Sleep Medicine

Obstructive sleep apnea is a severe sleep disorder that causes a disrupted breathing pattern during sleep. According to Cleveland Clinic, sleep apnea affects 25% of men and almost 10% of women.

Why You Should I See a Pulmonologist for Sleep Apnea

Sleep Disorder Treatments at Texas Lung Care

Texas Lung Care can help you by conducting at-home sleep studies to diagnose sleep apnea. During an at-home study, you'll be given a device to wear overnight that will measure your breathing and heart rate while you sleep. Based on the data collected, we can make an accurate diagnosis of any potential sleeping disorders such as sleep apnea.

We proudly offer hypoglossal nerve stimulation (Inspire) therapy, Inspire therapy, a cutting-edge treatment option for moderate to severe cases of sleep apnea as an alternative to CPAP therapy. This implantable device works to stimulate the hypoglossal nerve, which helps keep your airway open and allows you to breathe more easily during sleep. This helps to restore natural breathing patterns during sleep and improve your overall quality of life.

Other treatment options for sleep apnea include: 

  • Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP): CPAP is the most common treatment for sleep apnea. A CPAP machine helps keep your airways open and helps you breathe more easily.
  • Oral Appliances: Oral appliances are a less invasive form of therapy than CPAP, which involves wearing a small device while you sleep that keeps your jaw in an advanced position to prevent the obstruction of your airway. 
  • Lifestyle changes: Making simple lifestyle changes can also help improve your breathing during sleep. This includes losing weight, avoiding alcohol and sleeping on your side or stomach.

In severe cases of sleep apnea, anatomy-altering surgery may be recommended. Our experienced staff can discuss all possible treatment options with you during your visit to Texas Lung Care.
