Patients can become very frustrated and upset when CPAP doesn’t work. Nearly half of all patients prescribed a CPAP machine give up on it within one year… The good news is that there are a whole host of options available. The least invasive, least expensive, and most successful therapy is Oral Appliance Therapy (OSA) for management of Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
While some people want to bring their CPAP pressure down and use a combination therapy with CPAP and Oral Appliance Therapy together, other prefer to alternate therapy options on a nightly basis.
The main point is that you need one or the other or multiple therapies utilized in coordination or in sequence to increase your oxygen, decrease your possibility of obstructing your breathing during your sleep and prevent you from having a decreased quality and longevity of life. Untreated OSA systematically and methodically robs you of your life!
