The team of medical professionals at the Maxillofacial Institute answer the most common questions that people may have about Sleep Apnoea:
Sleep Apnoea can be identified by irregular, loud and interrupted snoring, accompanied by apnoeas while asleep, and if you feel tired during the day or have chronic fatigue.
It is very important to directly consult the specialist regarding the steps to take in these cases. Self-medicating to improve night-time rest in Sleep Apnoea patients can considerably worsen the disorder.
The doctors at the Maxillofacial Institute have demonstrated that orthognathic surgery has proven to be the only procedure that can cure this problem immediately and definitively.
Sleep Apnoea leads to a reduction in the oxygen transported by the blood, causing arterial hypertension, cardiovascular disease, metabolic and hormonal alterations and an increased risk of accident. In very extreme cases, and where the necessary measures are not taken, it could lead to the death of the patient.
Patients can maintain a weight appropriate for their body type, give up unhealthy habits such as smoking and alcohol, and do regular exercise.
